The source for the "Granny Squares" quilt from my last post was located and identified by a few of you--thanks for the help! And best of all, Charity, who was the maker of the quilt I photographed, (and is shown here again with it in my blurry photo) found the link to the pattern for us. If you have the Oct. 2010 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting, then you already have the pattern, just go find it. If not, click on "pattern" above and download it.
This link takes you to the free, downloadable Granny Squares pattern on the American Patchwork and Quilting website. If you are already a member you can go ahead and download. If you aren't, it just takes a minute to sign up and then you are good to go. They give you the pattern for a table topper in a different colorway, but you can just keep making more of the squares to create the full-size quilt as Charity made and as they featured on the cover of their Oct. 2010 issue, shown here (in the colorway Charity used).
By the way, Charity has started her own blog. She is a talented quilter and I think there will be much to like as she gets rolling. In the post linked here she is sitting with her Grandma and the quilt each of them made from this pattern. Check it out.
Speaking of patterns, there was a 25% off coupon in the latest email from the new LQS. I wasn't going to go in, but there is this pattern that has been catching my eye every time I am there. And 25% off! And I was going to be in that neighborhood anyway--and there was parking right by the door! How many more excuses do I need to give? Though who knows when I will ever attempt it. There are way too many WIP stacking up as it is and I have already told several of you I am on a "new project" diet. I brought the pattern home and put it away (after the photo to post here). See how strong I am? I know, if I was really strong I would never have purchased it.
So, until next time, from the little mountain valley where the tree frogs and crickets are currently chirping away,
