I love how this turned out
This pattern is called 5 & Dime. If ever you are in the need of making a fun, easy quilt, in a short amount of time . . . you ought to try this one. It comes in a lap and a twin size. This is the lap and I thought it a generous size. I think Vickie E. may have used this pattern before. My friend Judy (No Blog) made this in an Amy Butler color way and I just loved it. I think this is a good pattern to use a collection of fabric with. I needed 1 7/8 y of the larger print and 6 fats. This is Lakehouse fabric and I love the girlyness of it. Seriously, it took me less than 10 minutes to cut fabrics because you stack the fats and give them a whack. I love that. Does anyone else know any other patterns that call for that kind of cutting? I'd love to hear about them.
Sorry that this is such a gloomy picture. It has been raining here for 2 days straight and has melted the 12 inches of snow we had. We have a moat surrounding our house. It has been a gloomy week here as I had a collegue and friend pass away on Christmas day. She was one of those wonderful, loyal, committed people who the whole world seems to notice. I wonder how it will survive without her? I feel badly for her family and her closest friends. There seems to be such saddness this holiday season.
