Welcome to Day 6 of the Bloggers Block-a-Palooza! This is such a treat for me to be involved in the Block-a-Palooza, and I’ve been having so much fun checking the Block-a-Palooza Flickr pool each day - I love seeing what everyone’s been making - the fabrics, versions and variations. If you’re not in the pool… dive in!
I made a PDF to download - and am also posting it here in chopped up chunks so you can have two viewing options. I have a preference to quilting instructions - light on the words, heavy on the illustrations… less talky more showy - so that’s what I did.
Thank you to everyone who pointed out I had A piece marked as a D (that was a huge copy/paste/ooops of mine). It’s all fixed and I hope it didn’t cause anyone any inconvenience. I sooo appreciated all those eagle eyes - thank you!
Put on your seat-belt… the next stop on the tour is the always fun and always exciting:

For those who asked what program I use to make my patterns - my first step is I do everything by graph paper (and sometimes the backs of bill envelopes). I love, love, love good old graph paper and colored pencils/crayon pencils. I then re-made the illustrations, instructions and layout with Adobe Illustrator. Here’s my pattern in it’s virginal beginnings.
