I got my e-Mail today. I am looking forward to getting the pattern.

Sally - Thanks for the links. I have been watching them.

I try to keep all the rulers and instructions in a plastic folder, but like the PDF idea. Thanks Jana!

August 9, September 13,
October 11, November 8, December 13 2016.

Got an e-mail to buy the ruler for the next pattern. I think I will wait and order it later. Sure wish I knew what the pattern was ahead of time so I could decide on the ruler.

Ugh, decisions.

Thinking about that ruler too - but I know me and will order probably. I wonder if the new pattern will be some kind of a star. That ruler makes great star points.

The Amish block goes together very quickly. Did a baby quilt top in less than 2 hours yesterday. Now if it would just quilt itself that fast!

I've made them all (well, still working on July one and Crazy Ann is buried somewhere and unfinished--need to find it, finish and post pic!) Here's Glorified 9-patch--still haven't decided whether to add border or not!

I'm guessing but I think this is the pattern for new ruler. I've made one with old 'triangle in a square' ruler(well, still making it but you can see what it looks like). Original pattern by Teresa Barnes, awesome sewing guru at Quilt in a Day. She taught 4" blocks (mine is 3") and new one will be bigger yet. With El out due to broken leg and two surgeries they are updating a pattern never released (except for in a class) and class will most likely be taught by Orion again, perhaps Patty. I LOVE this ruler/patch. I have El's original and also ordered Accuquilt dies for 2", 3" and 4" ones (although I keep using El's ruler to make my blocks, LOL)

Sally - I got my pattern today and it is the same. I love it! I ordered the ruler, but did not receive it today, guess they are shipping it separately.

I pre-ordered the new ruler the day I got the email--not sure if they are in yet (due today?) They should be shipping out soon--hope I can pick mine up tonight! I'll let you know.

My July quilt top, "Amish Rainbow", turned our great--forgot to take a picture but I'll be showing it tonight during show & tell if Orion leaves the camera on--I post in the next couple of days.

Anyone watch this morning?
