Get out your rotary cutter and ruler!

Fire up that sewing machine!

It's January 1st!
We're off and running - it's time for the first blocks in the Just Takes 2 quilt!


The response to the Just Takes 2 mystery quilt has been fantastic. Brenda and I are glad you're as excited about this quilt as we are. You see, we'll be making the blocks right along with you and sharing our progress on the Just Takes 2 blog.

We are beginning with six blocks. Five of them are 6" blocks and one is a 12" block. One is an applique block. One is a combination of piecing and applique and four are pieced blocks. Have you noticed there is redwork embroidery on two of my blocks? If you know me you know I love redwork and embroidered quilts. There were several in the Infinite Variety exhibit and I wanted to include some in my own Just Takes 2 quilt. From time to time throughout the year you'll see it on different blocks whenever I think it looks nice. If you don't like embroidery - no problem. It's not a required part of the quilt. If you do like it you can add your own designs if you want. It you'd like to use the same designs I did you can do that too. We have an instant download in the Online Store you can purchase for (go ahead and laugh) Just $2!

I won't take up any more of your time with details or reminders. I'm sure you're anxious to download and print the patterns so you can start sewing. There are tutorials for many of the techniques mentioned in the Instructions section and I've also put links on the Just Takes 2 page. You can also review techniques in the Dear Jane software. We have fourteen days before you head over to Dear Jane on January 15 to get the next set. I hope you're as excited as we are and will have a fantastic 2012 with Just Takes 2. Don't forget to share your blocks on the blog. All you need to do is click on the big red Share Your Quilt button! We're still working out a few bugs so let us know if you have any problems.
