Leo’s Mane Sew Along

A Pattern Release and more EPPing

I am so excited about this new, and first, pattern release I have here on the blog. It’s been a long time coming. It is a quilt I designed over ten years ago when I was a member of the Yahoo group Canadian Quilt Swappers. This is back in the days before Facebook, before Instagram and even before blogging was common. It has had limited public sharing in a couple of guilds that did it as a nine patch swap and a mystery during their programs. It’s time to see if a wider audience would like to make it, as well. The pattern itself is available on the right hand side bar of the blog as either a PDF download or in print. It is 10 pages long, and has pictures and instructions suitable to a beginner. The quilt looks like quite a complex design, but that is achieved from the layout. The individual units themselves are easy to make.

I’m continuing to hand stitch, and in true quilter’s A.D.D. fashion, I have more than one project on the go.  Ive started a braid project, made out of 2 1/4 inch half hexagons. They are a perfect fit for scrap 2 1/2 inch strips.
And hen I’m continuing to work on the units for Leo’s Mane. The second of four total stars is ready to go together.
Today has been declared a work on the computer day. So, after I share this post with Lorna’s Let’s Bee Social and the Needle and Thread Network, it will be back to work.



I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
