Corey and I are also hosting a sew-along right now using the book, so I’ve included a link to the most recent sew-along post which will give you all of the information if you’d like to join in (we only started two weeks ago, so it’s not too late)!

I can hardly wait to get started on this quilt. Right now I have more pressing projects with deadlines to finish.
Susan Willison says
I recently received my reserved fat quarter bundle of Harper’s Garden and am so looking forward to using it for your Family Farm quilt pattern! I also saved all the information on the Merry Mini Christmas Sew Along and want to do that as well. Although I am a long time sewist, my foray into quilting just began two years ago so when I ran across this sampler pattern I thought it would be a perfect learning tool especially after doing the last two of Jackie’s quilt alongs. I very much enjoy your newsletters. Happy Stitching!

This is my first BOM and I really am enjoying it.
