A few years ago, I released my Sadie Quilt Pattern. I love this pattern, but I was never very happy with the photograph on the cover so making a new quilt and photographing it has been on my (very long) to do list. Then a few months ago, Ruby Star Society included the pattern in their lookbook using a fun new collection called Twirl and I knew it was time.
But of course, I couldn't just take a new photo. Here are some things that have changed in the new pattern:
- Additional sizing. Yay! The original pattern had instructions for baby, lap, and twin sizes. The updated pattern adds queen AND king sizes.
- The instructions in the updated pattern are a little easier to follow. While the pattern itself isn't tricky, there were some things that were a little tricky to explain and I feel like I have gotten a little better about doing that.
- There are new graphics that reflect the colors of the cover quilt.
- The pattern is still fat quarter friendly. Yay! And the number required is flexible — the pattern lists the minimum number of fat quarters needed to make the quilt. I like the flexibility of being able to add in more fabrics if I want more variety
- There are still cutting diagrams showing how to cut your fat quarters.
- There are still instructions for the corner and side blocks that mean there is only a tiny bit of fabric trimmed when you finish your quilt.
- This pattern is still not jelly roll friendly — I'm sorry, it just doesn't work for this quilt!
