I'll sew along with the "Small Quilt Club" from Huckleberry Stitches. A link to her site on the right side shows the book we'll use, 101 Fabulous Small Quilts from Martingale. This thick book includes many familiar quilts I've seen in my other Martingale books. (It's not too late to sign up and join in.)

|enlarged version sewn in 2010|
A lesson was learned the first time I made this pattern (pink + brown version in 2010).
I sewed on the label and tacked down the hanging pocket before sewing on buttons. Oops -- the hanging pocket and label both covered spots where buttons had to be sewn. So unstitching -- then buttons -- then restitching pocket and label.
Lesson learned. This time, all buttons were sewn on first.
I hope you find time for stitching this weekend. We all need plenty of that in our lives.
