County Fair Quilt



Happy Wednesday! Today I've been waiting not so patiently for the Fed Ex man to deliver my new books! If you've pre-ordered from me they will ship tomorrow!

In the meantime I've been working on my new spring pattern releases, and I have the first one ready! Meet "County Fair!"  This quilt is jelly roll friendly or works great with fabrics in your scrap bin. I used bits and pieces from most of Bonnie & Camille's fabric collections and had a blast. 




 This is a beginner level pattern with a fun construction technique requiring minimal matching of seams.



When I finished making the quilt top, "County Fair" seemed like the perfect name for this pattern. The county fair in my county takes place less than a mile from my home each April...so when the weather starts to say "spring" I start thinking of the outdoors and that not-so-healthy but oh-so-delicious fair food...




PDF patterns are available now  here in my Etsy shop--on sale for just $6.00 through the weekend. Paper patterns will ship next week.

Thanks so very much for stopping by today!

I love it! I have a bin where I keep scrappy 2.5" squares....I wonder if I have enough in there to make this. Another great pattern Sherri!

Hi Sherry, super cute! Does this use 2 1/2 in squares, like in Moda Candy? I am assuming it does since it is jelly roll friendly. I have a ton of moda candy I would like to use. Thank you. It is really cute!
