Patience is a Virtue



I want to thank you all for hanging in there with me. I have been slow to blog and if you have commented and not heard from me - Sorry! I am cramming to get things done. I do appreciate all comments and after Market will be better about email and posting. Anyway.... here is the finish for Folk Art Tribute!


This is the final block. It finishes at 12" x 48" and goes at the bottom of the quilt. You will need to piece your backing. I used two different prints and joined in the middle. The templates and border instructions are HERE.

The finished quilt is 60" x 72" and has 3 borders.

I think it turned out pretty cute. What do you guys think?


I have been asked if I will do another free BOM- not sure yet. I am going to have to see how busy I am. I am writing 2 books for 2012. Which means I am working on those now. I will get back to you on that. That's all for now. Come back on Tuesday for the 100 Blocks Blog Tour and giveaway.


(This free pattern will be removed June1 and then will be available for purchase only.)


Happy Quilting, Dawn

  6. Dawn, you did a lovely job on designing and presenting your quilt.

    I thank you for the opportunity to share it. I have printed everything and hope to start it soon. My friend Ethel has been stitching them each new piece and is inspiring me to get going on mine.

    Congratulations on such a giving nature.

  10. Hi Dawn again! I was able to copy and print the pictures of your Folkart Tribute, but unable to get some of the templates printed from google. Seemed like web pages for blocks 1-2 & 3 were not available. Any help would be great. Thanks!
