  1. You have had several really intriguing quilts as of late, but when one looks into joining the quilt alongs there is always a book or rather expensive pattern….
    Times are changing and most quilters have lots of fabric, but need interesting patterns that either are very reasonable or free.
    I am specifically addressing things like Jolly Snowflake which wasn’t just jelly roll strips, but made a pattern with pizzaz. Also great in patriotic colors. It was free….
    Thank you for listening

    1. Hey Barbara, Fat Quarter shop offers many free quilt patterns. Just made one Halloween one. Meowy Halloween (and as you said, ‘from my own collection’ of fabrics. Another one is “Bats and Boos”. Haven’t made that one yet. Yes, I’m old and retired and can’t afford the fabric budget I once had, so yes, I’ve collected lots of fabric.
      Hope you spend a little on fabric and patterns though, because we have to keep them in business.

  2. How do I join a quilt along. Thinking of the one in October. Do I have to buy the pattern? Can I use may own fabric? What else do I need to know? Thanks

  3. Thank you Kimberly for offering choices whether it’s free patterns to use with our fabric or w=encouraging us to use our own fabric with your patterns to purchase or free QAL’s .I wish I was I was retired to do all the things. Thank you again for all the ideas I appreciate.
