Readers Try Our Patterns

Can you believe even more readers have tried our patterns??  First up is a Jimmy John quilt top made by Brenda.

Brenda writes, “Hi, Jo! I finished my Jimmy John top. I used my stash of 2-1/2″ strips and used a cheddar piece I’ve had awhile for the long strips. I do my quilting on my domestic machine and am still mulling how to quilt it. I also love the new quilt you recently posted, Meet In The Middle. Another to use up my 2-1/2″ strips! I can’t wait to start on it!”

WOW…it turned out great.  I wouldn’t have imagined using yellow as a background but I really like it.  If you’d like to give our pattern Jimmy John a try, you can find it here.

The day after we posted our pattern for our quilt Meet in the Middle, I got a note from Ana.  She was already well on her way in getting the quilt top done.  I wrote her a note and asked if we could feature her quilt on the blog.

The next day I got a note saying, “I now have it sewn together.  Used a Bali Pop and a light blue batik for the background.  So easy and no waste.  Easy to make another size too.  This picture is before sewing all the rows together but it is done and waiting to go to my friend who will quilt it.  It is a donation quilt for a psychiatric children’s home here in Indy.  We are told our (Kathy’s and mine) are the first ones picked by the kids. :-)  Thanks for the interesting blog.  Use the picture any way you want.  I really really liked the no waste to this pattern.  We are frugal fabric users.”

I have to say, Meet in the Middle is truly a no waste pattern.  I don’t think a pattern can be designed that is more efficient.  If you’d like the pattern for yourself, you can find it here.  It’s fast too!  Ana had a quit top together two days after we published the pattern!!

Thanks for trying out our patterns gals and sharing your quilt stories with all of us.  We love hearing them!!
