*** NOTE ***
Thanks to an eager stitcher (thanks Ellie) I have found
a few little mistakes. I went through the whole pattern
just to double check. If you already purchased the pattern
you should have received a new link to the corrected pattern.
The two main errors on on page 2
Block 2 - Cut green stripe 2 7/8" square diagonally once
Block 3 - Cut green print and stripe squares 2-1/2"
Cut 2 green print squares 1-1/2"
So sorry for the inconvenience. Happy Stitching

TQC Journal | Make it with Marcus Edition

Welcome to another Special Edition of the TQC Journal.
 This time it is to bring you another fun Make it with Marcus project.
 The designers at Marcus Fabrics were invited to visit New York this
summer. Sounds like fun right? Well for this homebody it sounded 
like anything but fun and for several reason I decided not to attend.
When we were asked to create a project inspired by our trip I was
at a loss until I saw the vintage quilt that inspired Homebody House.

Using my Material Madders Collection I made this little 
quilt perfect for you customize with your own monogram.
Download the free pattern below and get started today. 

P.S. Wouldn't a alphabet quilt be darling. Don't worry I am 
working on that and will be sure to share as soon as it is done. 
Follow me on Instagram for a few sneak peeks.

This Fifth Monday Special Edition includes another
prompt to add a few more blocks to your
Calico and Cotton Sew Along. 
We are almost finished!
If you are just joining us you can find all the details here
and purchase the pattern using the Buy Now button below. 
I really like the effect of a One Patch quilt. I have been looking
for a project to make a "Swatch-book Quilt" using all the prints
from each of my fabric collections. I found this cute, simple
block and thought it would be perfect. I am not sure how big
 the quilt will be yet. At the moment I have178 different dark
prints. This would make a quilt about 45" x 52"
 Here are the blocks details if you would like to join me

For one block cut the following
From dark print, cut:
1 square 3" x 3"
From light print, cut:
1 square 3" x 3"
2 rectangles, 1-1/2" x 2 1/2"

Making the block
Using 3" squares make two half-square-triangles by
drawing a diagonal line on wrong side of light square.
Sew 1/4" on each side of line, cut on line and press.
Trim one unit to 2-1/2" square and one unit to 1-1/2" square
Lay out block using picture and piece together. 
Block finishes 3-1/2" square, including seam allowances.

Also check out a few of my other One Patch Sew Alongs
They might be more to your liking. Enjoy!

Wild Goose Wednesday was another fun quilt.
