It’s release day for the Good Girl quilt. Squee!
So excited to re-release this one! If you have purchased the older pattern, it is the EXACT SAME PATTERN. The only difference is that this one is written a bit better, has better graphics and is in the 9″x12″ booklet form like the majority of my patterns.
Good Girl is about as easy a quilt pattern as it gets for making quilt making! I’ve written this pattern for the purpose of scrap busting. I’m always left with those “less than a 1-4 yard bits” and scraps start to pile up. It can get overwhelming! And they need to find a home.
Good Girl uses 2.5″ width of fabric strips (42/44″), so it’s also a good pattern for using leftover jelly rolls. The background can be a place to showcase larger prints and have a scrappy background as well. All measurements are given with scrap busting in mind and include the amount of yardage as a whole. Since only you know how wide your scraps and leftover pieces are, gather enough fabric to equal the amount of yardage required for each size.

I finished the above Good Girl flimsy last week and just need to get to quilting it. Instead of going scrappy with my strips/sashing/foreground, I chose to do a single fabric. Not sure I like it better, but I do still like it and I always love mixing things up.
If you are looking for low volume bundles for background, you’ll find them here.
Here’s a look at my testers’ Good Girl quilts.

I just loved seeing all the variations.
