my Pattern Shop: Chain Reaction. You can buy the pattern in my shop, or on Craftsy or Threadbias.
This quilt originally appeared in Quiltmaker magazine, and I'm now offering it as a stand-alone pattern. The piecing is easier than you think—no paper-piecing or templates necessary for this one! All you need is a little careful cutting and a scant 1/4" seam, and you're in business. : ) (But yes, it is important that your cutting is accurate and your seams are scant and straight to succeed.)
This pattern includes detailed step-by-step instructions with a photo or illustration for nearly every step. The pattern also includes instructions for making the quilt in three different sizes: Baby (40" x 48"), Lap (56" x 72"), and Twin (72" x 88").
Once again, I'm offering a free digital copy of the pattern to three winners. Just comment on this post for a chance to win. And once again, I'm kicking off the introduction of this pattern with a sale! The PDF pattern is just $6, now through Monday!
Also, FYI, I'm now offering hard-copy versions of both Cartwheels and Chain Reaction, to U.S. customers only. Hard-copy patterns will be $12.50, and that price includes shipping via First Class Mail. Customers in Canada and all other countries can still purchase my patterns in PDF form. (Sorry, I just don't want to deal with customs and postage to other countries.) Hard-copy patterns can be purchased only in my Pattern Shop.
