Blog Hop MAZED (with giveaway!)

A few months ago a fellow member of the St Louis Modern Quilt Guild sent a shout out looking for pattern testers..  I quickly responded and was chosen ..  Kristy blogs at St. Louis Folk Victorian, and is president of the StLMQG..  When she isn't working...or going to flea markets...or sewing.....it seems she has been doing a bit of designing..

Her first pattern has just been released and as one of the testers I have the privilege of giving away a "autographed" copy of her pattern..  Yes, autographed!!

I present to you,  (drum roll please!)

Got a basket of scraps? Then this pattern is perfect..  Got a jelly roll laying around?  Add a background and you have "instant quilt"...   Great directions with pictures...some alternative layout suggestions and you have a win-win combination..

I made a pillow top with some leftover jelly roll strips ...  I did add an alternate block and directions for it are included in the pattern..  Yea...it's still not quilted and made into a pillow yet...maybe this week?

Can't wait?  Don't feel lucky?  Need it now?

What a great pattern.I think it would be awesome in batiks. Your cushion looks great. Why haven't you finished? Anyone would think you have been busy working on a house or something.

Here I am. I've got scrap, I've got leftover jellyrolls, I've go a Go! cutter just in case.
I have a lovely solid charcoal background fabric or a nice lite grey background fabric.
Gee, I would love a great pattern for a terrific modern quilt pattern.
Thanks for this opportunity to win Mazed.
hugs
