I have been in love with this quilt for ages, I don't know if it's the pattern or the colors, it's very busy. I finally got around to emailing Piece O Cake designs to ask them how I could get the pattern. I was told to purchase the book Applique Outside the Lines. It is pretty expensive to purchase from them directly, so I ordered a used copy from Amazon. I was really disappointed when the book arrived as the pattern was not in that book. I emailed Piece O Cake back again and they said they had made a mistake, the pattern was actually in the book Quilts with a Spin. So back to Amazon I went, purchasing another used book. All in all, it took over 3 weeks to get the one single pattern I wanted.
I've got a bug to enter another contest. Broward Quilt Expo is a year away, and that's just about how long it will take me to make this quilt (assuming I don't get bored somewhere in the middle).
I ordered a bunch of fat quarters yesterday and today I went through my entire stash (including the strings scraps box), looking for anything with dots, spots or circles.
