Introducing The Cascade Quilt

I'm excited and honored to introduce a new pattern by my friend, Susannah Kate:  

Cascade Quilt


I had the pleasure of meeting Susannah Kate last spring at the first ever Sew South Retreat.  Her new quilt pattern is great for beginner and advanced quilters alike.  It goes together quickly, but is also fun.  The directions are clear and concise.  Best of all, the result reminds me of one of the greatest games of my childhood: Tetris!


The Cascade Quilt pattern is now available for purchase in Susannah Kate's Etsy shop, https://www.etsy.com/shop/SusannahKateSews.  She has generously offered to give away one pattern at each of the stops on our blog hop.  The first reader to post a comment at the end of my post will receive the pattern for free in PDF format.


There are 10 stops on our Cascade Quilt Blog Hop.  This is the first!  The schedule for the rest of the hop is below.  Please stop by to see pictures of everyone's own special version of the Cascade Quilt.  If you don't win the free pattern here, maybe you can snag it at another participant's blog.

Log Cabin Pin Cushion


Susannah Kate's pattern leaves few scraps behind - the sign of a conservative quilter!  However, with the little pieces left over, I put together a few fun pinnies.
