Super cute pattern; can't wait to make it! Lori & I belong to the same quilt group on FB; I'd asked about this pattern months ago, but FB sent my message into the ether; Lori just found it and immediately sent me the link to purchase. As is common amongst quilters, my eyes are bigger than my time to quilt, so I wouldn't have started on this anyway; it will be a nice addition to the spring auction in support of my local hospital. Thank you!

I love my new notecards! They are vibrant, high quality & each has a charming tidbit of information on the back that tells about the quilt while incorporating a "slice of life" type of motivational message. I want to give this "Proud to be a Strange Bird" notecard to every person I know who feels like they don't belong or don't quite fit in. What a nice idea to reclaim & take pride in the things that make us different from everyone else. Schools should hang this in every classroom! :)

I have to admit as a beginner quilter, I was a little worried when I purchased this pattern and saw that it was only 8 pages. How could I possibly learn to quilt letters in only 8 pages!? Well it worked!!! You get more then what you paid for and I would definitely recommend this pattern to quilters of any level.

This was an easy to follow set of instructions. When I made a silly mistake, I reached out to the shop and their reply was swift and very helpful! I highly recommend this pattern for anyone who needs to do some lettering on their quilts.
