As I was getting the pattern together for this quilt I realized that a "map" provided to me from a friend didn't come with this months bom package. It probably will in a later package, but since it pertains to the top section below...I thought I'd share it now and say that it can also be found on the tips page.
It gives you sizes of strips you will need to complete the top section and a hint about what goes where!
**I also want to say a few things about this quilt and the patterns. Cheri's patterns can be really intimidating for some if you are used to patterns that give you very detailed actual directions for every tiny piece. These are not those patterns. Don't misunderstand, she gives you directions for everything, but they are hand drawn. I've always looked at them as more of a suggestion rather than a mandate. Your circle might not look like the pattern circle, but if it looks good to you, then it's perfect.There is no wrong and right. If you like how it turned out, then it's right!
They are complicated samplers, but I'd hate to see anyone not do a quilt they love and really want to do because they are worried about it being wrong. I'm a visual person so it's easier for me I guess. I can see something and figure it out faster than reading directions. If you want to try these quilts, start with one block...try it out. Feel free to look at the tips or ask questions. I bet you'll be having fun before you finish. **
