When I saw this magazine cover at the grocery store this week, I knew I wanted to make that quilt. I thought it was Winding Ways...and I've got the Winding Ways die for my AccuQuilt Go!....and if somehow I was wrong, I've got scissors and template plastic....
It turns out the pattern is written for the AccuQuilt die. I'm not totally sure how I feel about that. It's great for me, since I've already got the die and hadn't quite worked up the nerve to try it. I needed a gorgeous quilt to push me into action.
If I didn't already have the die....I'm not sure if I'd be annoyed by the pattern's focus or not. Honestly, there's no need to be. The pattern comes with templates. It can be made as if the die and die cutter didn't exist. (Wish I could say that for all of those patterns that rely on printed panels!)
There are a few other patterns in here that I want to make, too, so I think I got my money's worth whether or not I wind up making the cover quilt. Why is it that the good issues always come out right after my subscription expires?
