I'd love to enter, but the deadline doesn't give much time, and I don't even have the pattern. :(

Dawn said...


You can purchase the E-pattern and have it instantly. Just simply print out the pattern pieces on your printer. There is no taping or piecing with this pattern and it's honestly a lot of fun to make.

ShirleyC said...

Thanks, Dawn, but I really wanted to order more fabric, and I have 2 projects going right now. I wish it wasn't such a busy time - really! LOL
