The Chapter 8 pattern is out today!  I think this month is a favorite of mine.  Something about this color combination appeals to me and just makes me happy!

Chapter 8 fits into the bottom row of the quilt, and there are only four more chapters to go!

Chapter eight is all straight piecing (goes together faster than you might think) and some applique…

blue in the flower is also lazy stripe from Tula

the green leaves fabric is part of the Rhoda Ruth line from Elizabeth Hartman

dark purple star points is called knotty grape from cotton and steele

orange in the large half square triangle is guinea from Kaffe – I’m down to a small scrap of this old favorite! boo!

green in the flower is also Kaffe – called paperweight

pink(ish) in corners is Kate Spain (heart) from her Canyon collection and a scrap from this quilt.

the ‘Have’ applique and the background text fabric are from Carolyn Friedlander ~ Architectures
