this project was a BEAST, that’s for sure!
i started this one in 2018 after seeing my guild friend and long arm instructor do the sew along on instagram. she decided to take it on as a “block of the month” style class where each month we would sew the 4 blocks for each chapter and after 12 months, we would have our 48 blocks. it took a little bit beyond 2018 to get the blocks done, and then even longer to get the quilting done… but come 2020, it was finally bound and ready for the world to see!
it was suggested we picked a theme, and my first theme idea was disney, but i do that a LOT. so when i couldn’t decide, i opted for 2 of my favorite things… cats and dinosaurs. plus sticking with 4 main colors really helped keep the cohesion of the quilt. basically… this was all a plot for me to keep buying fabric because i NEEDED new things… right? i’m super happy with how it all turned out, and could easily convince myself to make another one. a few skills were stressful at first, but the book does a great job of walking you through things!
