Just get it done quilts recommendation.

I ordered this pattern after seeing it on Just Get it Done Quilts blog. I’d have to say that I would not have purchased it based on your pattern cover illustration. It appeared too busy and not my colour scheme. It was the quilt Karen Brown made that sold me. Then I saw that most of the colours she picked were very close to one of your alternates. Although I have not yet picked a colourway for myself, it’s high on my list for future projects. I do appreciate the great amount of detail in your instructions and I’m confident I will be able to follow along when the time comes.
Great interview on Karen’s show. I really enjoyed your story.
