    This is the latest project that I just finished. I made it from four fat quarters that I got on clearance for 50 cents each. Not bad, huh? It was fun to make and has all the pockets inside like the bowtuck but easier to make, IMHO.

    I would to have the pattern. Could you tell me where you purchased it so I could get one? Especially since you said it was easy. That is what I like.

    Nice work and thank you for sharing.

    The pattern is from Quilts Illustrated designed by Penny Sturges. I bought it at Joann Fabric but I have seen them online also. I put snaps on mine instead of the ties that are on the pattern. Personal preference.

    What kind of stiffening did you put in it. Looks so nice

    I used Pellon 987 fusable fleece. It is bulky to work with but used my walking foot for the whole thing and stitched at a slower speed. I tend to stitch too fast and sometimes break needles.

    Is this a pattern, or a book with instructions?

    Love the fabric! You know, I think you have to love the fabric if you want to love the end result. If you're iffy about the fabric or using it because you have it, your heart won't be in it. (no pun intended!)

    Nice and cheery for summer, too!
