Did you see this?
Chintz Circles by Cathi at Quilt Obsession
or do you remember this?
Alabama Beauty by me.
I always thought there should be a pattern for this quilt and now there is. Cathi, author of a blog that can be found here is now a pattern company and that pattern company — Quilt-Obsession — is up and open and ready for creativity!!!
I could have used this pattern – Alabama Beauty – when I was making my quilt. It gives instructions on how to construct the block, clearly labels each piece throughout the pattern not to mention a great diagram for the stitching sequence. The pattern is written in a way that you can really learn something. I think seeing how the block is put together and stitched is invaluable. Practically a skill to take away with you.
For the record - this block was mostly hand-pieced but if you’re really good with curves you can do it on the machine. I did one block on the machine. It’s definitely do-able depending upon your skill level there.
Some work from Quilt Obsession with Inklingo!
