Something New - a Porch Swings Quilts Pattern

So Jennie decided to call the last one Something New. Perhaps we did these in the wrong order...

Jennie made hers in the fabulous Miss Kate - it's a fat eighth pattern and therefore, super scrappy friendly.

In fact, it's so scrap friendly, that you can make an AWESOME red, white and blue controlled-scrappy version. Mine is barely started - just checking measurements and seam pressing - because I want to spread out the scrappiness. {No, I don't want all those dots in the same block!}

I've been buying RW&B fat quarters/scraps for a while now with the plan to make some Quilts of Valor, and this one fits the bill perfectly! {Yes, that was my first question for pattern testing - can I use scraps instead? Luckily Jennie isn't all "you must use the latest designer fabric!"}

I'm currently in the throes of cutting t-shirt quilts and binding minis and deadlines, but I really can't wait to get back to this one. In fact, I have a stack of the pieces cut to be leaders/enders while I get these Christmas orders together.

{I also have a QOV made by someone else to bind. Man, these local chapters don't really rest when they find a volunteer!}

Anyway, same deal as before - Something New is on sale at Craftsy for $5 this week only!

But wait! You can win it here! Just leave a comment about your favorite organization to donate quilts, if you know of one.

But wait! There's more! You're going to want to head on over to Jennie's, because she has some way better shots of the quilt, plus a solid version which is almost cool as my controlled-scrappy. AND she's giving away fabric, too!

{Oh, and last week's winner was Dawn. Thanks for the Vegas suggestions! We saw Love, did a ton of eating, and - oh yeah, ran some races.}

And you're going to want to stay tuned for Wednesday - Jennie has a BIG announcement!
