Cheaper by the Dozen

Background

The pattern and most of the fabrics for the quilt were purchased in September 2016, during Barbara's and Sharon's trip to Leavenworth, Washington.

The pattern, Cheaper by the Dozen, is by Legacy Patterns (© 2005) and requires 12 fat quarters for the body. Borders are extra, and as yet we don't have the fabric for the borders. Finished size is 59" x 74".

The pattern and a number of batik fabrics were purchased in Wenatchee at the Craft Warehouse (Store 12, unfortunately the store has closed or is closing as I write this). That's were Barbara saw the demonstration quilt. A second set of fabrics, Hoffman Batik Morocco, was purchased at Leavenworth Quilt Co. the same day. Don't know how many of those will be used for the quilt.

The trip is becoming an annual thing. Believe that was the 3rd one last year. Barbara doesn't always come back with fabric or patterns, but always comes back with Christmas decorations.


Working on the Quilt

Barbara wanted easy access to the photos of the quilt she took at the shop where the kit was purchased.
