I've been working on a cute, cute, cute quilt called Girl Next Door. It's a pattern by Louise Papas of Amitie Designs, which is Jen Kingwell's company.
It was a challenge to get it started since every piece is listed as a template. That's right--no rotary cut sizes at all. So I spent awhile measuring all the templates for the girl block and then spent awhile making a test block.
In the end, it took me about 3 hours to make the first block because I kept cutting the wrong size patches. But I finally got all the sizes right and whipped through the other 23 blocks, and actually make one extra because they were just so cute and I had already cut an extra dress fabric for previewing so I went ahead and put that one together too. Since I keep an "orphan block" drawer of test blocks anyway, I figured that I would put it to good use somewhere. Maybe in the backing? We'll see.
I had fun picking the socks and hair fabrics.
This house goes in the middle of the quilt, with all the girls around the house, then a picket fence, and then houses. Fun!
