Hi, Jen from DizzyQuilter.com here and I want to share my favorite system for laying out pattern. My Ready. Set. GO! came with an GO! Qube 8" Mix & Match Block, which includes lovely pattern cards, a booklet, and a book by Eleanor Burns with more patterns. However, I like to go my own way, which means I think outside the box when it comes to using my AccuQuilt products. I haven’t memorized what pieces I have yet, and how they fit together. I’m sure there are resources to help me with all of this, but I came up with a simple, more playful solution.
