Hi Gang, Just wanted to let you know that if you see one of those pattern leaflets in the LQS and they don't have all the fabric needed or you have some of your own fabric you'd like to use, just go online. Each manufacturer has their own website and have free projects(leaflets) available to print out. I saw one a year ago that was for one fabric line and I had a couple of the fabrics but not all. I had some other fabric that would fit in perfectly and just printed it online. Great resource.

You're so right about manufacturers' sites having free projects and ideas. Some of the big name fabric designers, like Jinny Beyer and Lynnette Jensen, do too. A free resource can keep you in patterns forever, and if you see a pattern in your LQS that you really want, you've saved sooo much money with the freebies, you can afford to go for it!
It's Quilting! You're supposed to be having fun!
