I am SO EXCITED about this quilt. Iy has been a vision for quite some time and FINALLY is in print. Wanna hear a couple stories? I thought so.
DO you remember back here when I posted about visiting Just Sew? Well, a little recap: I met the cutest gal in th shop that just happened to have one of my patterns in her hand (Flora & Fauna). We talked fabric choices for a while and then I let her do her thing ( didn't want to vrowd her). I was at the cutting table having my goods cut when she brought up the most FABULOUS stack of bolts. I had to have them! So I got FQ's of everything!
Fast forward to today and VOILA! Do you see it? I used that whole stack (and a few extras from the stash) for PARK CITY!
One more quick bit on the name. Had a wonderful lunch with a couple friends a few months back. Moose was there and so was April. We had a nice lunch and talked all sorts of fabric related talk. I mentioned that I was having a hard time with a name for an upcoming pattern. I also mentioned a recent trip to PC (Park City, UT) with the hubs. That's when April said "Why don't you name it Park City!?" GENIUS that girl! And so I did. But April's contribution didn't stop there- in a frantic race to get all my new quilts and patterns done before a deadline April pieced the quilt for me! Didn't she do a fabulous job!?
Now here's the cool thing- it is a LAYER CAKE pattern. But obviously I used FQ's for mine. Doesn't matter what you use as long as you cut your fabric down to 10" squares. It's all in the instructions. :o)
