It's The Beginning Of A Garden Party

I love the sound of these words:

"Hi, I'm Jenny from Missouri Star Quilt Company."

It gets me all pumped up and ready to watch her video and learn something new.

What's that? Missouri Star Quilt Company now has a magazine?
Well, sign me up, of course!

The magazine was accidently delivered to a distant neighbor (seriously, Barbara lives several blocks away) who kindly hand delivered it to me. That visit led to going to a new quilt group led by her. At yesterday's meeting Barbara showed us a quilt she had started using a pattern from the magazine.

Not that I'm competitive or anything (okay, so maybe a little bit), but as soon as I got home 
I grabbed the magazine and after looking through it I decided to make a quilt from it, too. 

Garden Party Quilt

Wait!
How many one and a half inch squares do I have to 
cut out...and sew...to charm blocks? 336? Wow!

This may take a while!

Oh Carol I so love Jenny! and I love that quilt! I ordered the magazine when it began and I'm so glad I did - it's just so nice to have a magazine without all the ads and with NO postcards falling out. :) blessings, marlene

One charm pack? 42 charms cut into four squares each? Tiny square to two adjacent sides to make flower petals?

Am I on the right track?

Am anxious for more feedback on the magazine.

Thank you so much for this post. A friend emailed me the picture of this quilt from FB and asked if I could use it for her daughter's 100 Good Wishes Quilt and I couldn't find the pattern. Now I know where to get it.
