We are so spoilt by TQS. I bought a Lynette Anderson "Friends for Christmas" pattern (pattern only) and I know that the pattern was over £60.00 TQS is such great value for the small subscription we pay.
Best wishes

They're 9 in blocks so I may reduce to 6 ins but was thinking of consolidating the tiny squares, but hmmm we'll see :D

It would also work well in Spring/Easter colours - pastel greens, yellows, pinks. :D

WOW! I think I'll do this one half-size too... the smallest squares look like they measure 1" x 1" (I see 54 of them on the inner border), so they would be 1/2 x 1/2...
This is going to be fun!

I am so looking forward to viewing all the ideas you guys come up with. Haven't decided yet if I will do this one. Maybe I can finish some Projects. Janet

Some years I haven't done the BOM because I really did not like the colours. Then, I see what others put together with their own colour scheme - example - Sedona Star, and wow! I might try this one. It will be a challenge. These are not my colours at all. There's the challenge.

love the Halloween idea, pure brights, like summer, would work, too. I can't explain it, but have a picture in my mind. Dang it, I was hoping not to want to do next year's in hopes of getting some previous ones finished. This one looks like some hand work is involved.

It would look good as a Christmas or Halloween quilt too. Just change up the appliqué with alternative images. Reds, greens, golds for aChristmas quilt or more modern colours if you are a modern quilter, and oranges and autumn colours for Halloween quilt. You could even change out some of the traditional blocks if you don't like them - or you could make them all the same! Lots of possibilities on this one. I think the fabrics used on Lynette's quilt are from her own line of fabrics but there's nothing to stop anybody substituting fabrics of their own choice.

Don't have to do the colours. Other years have shown an alternative :D
