I was thrilled when I was chosen to pattern test for
I have been a fan for many years!
And her new pattern seemed right up my alley....
Varied blocks, lots of colour and fussy cutting!
I immediately started scrambling through my stash
for the perfect fabric!
I had hoped all my Heather Ross fabrics might have
but because the pattern called for 12" fussy cuts
'on point', I just didn't have enough fabric!
So I settled on my Cotton and Steel stash,
something which I'd added to during a "Quilty
Wishes" swap last year!
I spent two days cutting out all the pieces,
and waited a few days for some extra fabric to arrive.
Then the piecing of the Square in a Square and
I laid out all the blocks on Sunday and started
sewing and 'voila'!
It was finished!
I love how it turned out!
There is so much to look at,
especially those cute teddy bears!
And the colours are so rich and bold!
It's a great pattern, well written with clear diagrams.
If you have some precious fabrics you are waiting to
fussy cut, this may be the pattern for you!
