May Is For Makers - Week 2

Ok I'm a little more timely this week with my purchase for #MayisforMakers. I had several choices already pinned but I ended up picking Picket Fence by Busy Hands Quilts. I am trying to pick patterns that I really want to make and that come in different sizes.  I love that this pattern comes in 6 sizes, which gives lots of options. I also picked it because it is layer cake friendly.  I have a couple of layer cakes that I bought with one idea in mind and have since decided I didn't want to do that, so now I have a use for them.

My intention with all the patterns is to use them in the future. I picked ones that I hope I can use multiple times. I know that will be the case with last week's pattern.  I got an email from my sister-in-law asking for a quilt made with the Courtyard Tiles pattern.  I gave her some fabric choices and she picked the one she liked best. Now I just have to get the fabric and get to sewing. I'm not promising for Christmas, but if I get lucky maybe one present will be done early this year.

  1. Great pattern. THis would look amazing in the right Layer Cake. Would also be a good pattern for an eye spy or featured fabric quilt

  2. WOW, thank you so much for featuring my Picket Fence pattern! I would be delighted to share your quilt on my blog and Facebook page when it's finished. Just send me a note and picture.

  3. I like Gina's idea of using this for i spy with a few feature fabrics for the bigger sections. A great pick for this week, thanks for sharing! :)

  4. Oh, patterns that are precut friendly are very nice. And how cool that this has 6 sizes?!?

  5. This is a very cool pattern, what fabrics are you planning on using?


I love hearing from you!!! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment!!!!!
