It was one of my goals, and hooray -- the pattern is ready!
It's available for instant download here...
It's a happy and fun little quilt to piece. The pieces go together like a little puzzle, and many of the sections are easy to strip or chain piece. I need to get some new pictures of it, but here it was before I added borders. (I used Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille for moda fabrics, with Bella Porcelain and Scarlet).
I have a baby size almost done too using some of these fabrics: (also chose these as a nod to the inspiration)
The pattern is jelly roll or layer cake friendly, and includes full color diagrams and illustrations (some of them made by the fabulous Ali at asquaredw), with directions for the full size or baby size. Fabric requirements are on the back cover... OK, here's a picture of the back cover.
You can see the pattern done up in Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille as well as AppleJack by Tim & Beck (both for moda fabrics) there at the top of the back cover (that is the baby size).
If you want to try to win a copy, leave a comment about your favorite kind of candy... wait... that's a bad idea if I'm trying to not eat sugar... leave a comment about a favorite summertime bit of sentiment or nostalgia! :)
I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to brave quilting this myself, or send it somewhere... maybe you could give me advice too. Either way -- I am excited to show you pictures of it all done! This one will be going in to Scarlet's hope chest I'm sure. :)
