Just a re-cap, Let's Book It is all about pulling out those 'need to have' books, magazines, patterns or saved/printed off the inter-net inspirations. Blow the dust off, open them up, and find a project that you fell in love with so long ago but somehow got distracted.
Remember this was my long ago gotta-make project found at McCalls Quilting.com - and if you look under the BONUS section - McCalls Bonuses - you will find many bonus free patterns. This one is called 'Doorway to China' from their Sept/Oct 2009 publication - page 4 of their listings. The pdf is still available.
I was able to make the first few middle sections by disecting the panel before I ran into a repeat of the pattern. Then I had to fussy cut the last few outer sections to make it look like the pattern just flowed as one piece. I used an old decor weight fabric for the bracings - believe me, my SIL and I pulled half my stash without success and then I took that piece out. She thought I was crazy, but I like the look. Just a stitch in the ditch around all the bracings. And I used the panel fabric for the binding to let the design to continue to flow. A fun project that I am so glad I pulled that long forgotten print out from the binder.
This Month's Charm for the Quilt Barn pin is the Friendship Star - link will be open to June 4 with winner announced the next day. Yes, I do ship international.
