October is upon us!

Yay! It’s my turn! I am making a quilt like this:


That's a Yoshiko Jinzenji quilt from her book “Simple Quilts.” Genius, huh? I'm making one for my bed. What I need help making are blocks like this:

The trick is, these blocks spell out words using a code! I will mail the fabric out in the morning; included are more detailed instructions and the code.

I hope you enjoy making these: they look more difficult to construct than they are—you just have to dive in! The fabrics are Kona Cottons, which I've over-dyed just a smidgen for a richer, more organic look.

(that says WILD) your blocks will look like this, except longer.

I can't wait to see what you make!

So far, I've written "Once Upon A Time" and "Don't Panic." I have fabric left. Any requests?

wow Sarah! great choices so far. : )

If you are up for it, "start making" and "together" come to mind.

This is fun, though it took me a while to get into the swing of things. Headed your way soon!
