Yeah!! Back in the black! My UFO for February, Five and Dime, is complete this week. The pattern is by Kansas Troubles Quilters.. It is super simple, made from a layer cake and a charm pack of the same fabric line. You could also make from all different fabrics to make even scrappier. I made the second border a bit smaller than the pattern called for. My "kit" that I won at our guild auction, also came with the ruler, which makes centering and cutting the blocks a breeze. Kansas Troubles Quilters also has a smaller version that you can make using a charm pack and a mini charm pack. Check out this great video by Missouri Star Quilts on how easy it is to make the Five and Dime Quilt.
Have a couple of adds for the week. Had to purchase the borders for the Five and Dime Quilt. I did not have anything in my stash that would work. Also picked up a few more reds for my Dear Jane Quilt.
Updated Numbers are below. Check our more reports at Patchwork Times.
