Do you remember this quilt - it's my own pattern and came about completely by accident a couple of years ago. I had numerous people ask me for the pattern but there was no pattern - I made this up as I went along. :-)
My friend, Carol at Brown Quilts 4 Me asked for some basic instructions. So, with instructions that were probably 'clear as mud' she created the quilt and was thrilled with it (says it's one of her favorites). She basically tested my rough instructions. LOL Lizzie asked for the pattern as well and she was able to make not one but two beautiful quilts with very basic information. Check out her blog to see pictures of "Darlene's 16 Patch".
In the meantime I've had numerous people ask me to please write the pattern. So, after many promises it's done - I made the quilt again with "Simple Abundance" by Moda and yes with lots of help from my sweet DH, Ron I have written the pattern
"Darlene's 16 Patch" is now called "Between Friends" and I am dedicating it to Carol Crago at Brown Quilts 4 Me because she was very instrumental in getting this pattern written. She tested my rough instructions and then proofed the final pattern. Carol - thank you so much for your encouragement. I need to thank Lizzie, as well, she's been incredibly encouraging. Ladies, YOU ROCK!!!
One of the first things you'll notice about the pattern is that it's Fat Quarter, Jelly Roll, Layer Cake and Charm Square friendly. I'm a huge fan of Moda fabrics and have often referred to myself as the Poster Girl for Moda LOL Do you think the Movers & Shakers at Moda will notice that my pattern can be made with so many of their precuts? I'm just a little fish in a big pond so it would surprise me if anyone notices. Big Sigh! :-)
