May is for Makers {Week 2: Mulholland Drive by Sassafrass Lane Designs}

It's week 2 of May is for Makers!

May Is For Makers |

This week I decided to pick something that has been on my Pinterest Quilt Inspiration board for what seems like forever.

May is for Makers is a great way to shorten those wishlists! 

This quilt is another effort to push my skills and make something more difficult (it is rated as "advanced" on Craftsy) and this one incorporates some paper piecing which I love! I will have to get my equilateral triangle ruler back from my sister before I start this one, but I don't think she'll mind because she actually bought me the fabric that I plan to use for this quilt! Enter Jungle Avenue:

I have a fat quarter bundle of the fabric as well as some additional yardage of the black floral print. It's not quite enough fabric for the throw size version, but I have lots of fabrics that I can pull from my stash to mix in. 

What have you bought this month to support makers?


  1. That's going to be a stunning quilt when you've done it. I love your fabric choices.

  2. Beautiful quilt pattern and fabric pull. I like how you are looking to work on your skills.

  3. Oh, that is a lovely pattern! Equilateral triangles are one of my favourite shapes, and you have some beautiful fabrics for it. :)

  4. I would love to join in on the May is for Makers action, but since I already have so many WIP's, I don't want to add more (just yet). I have had my eye on a pretty expensive pattern for a really long time, so in my mind it is essentially like buying four patterns at once.

    Have fun with this one... in my mind you just can't go wrong with paper piecing! I love it!

  5. Wow, this is an awesome pattern, I can't wait to see your version of it.

  6. Looks like lots of fun. Love your fabric choices.
