Welcome back!  We continue on our journey with Month 2.

Each Wednesday through November 2012, we will share a paper pieced quilt pattern that will all go toward one awesome Hobbit-themed quilt! At the end of the BOM, you will have 13 unique blocks and we will share finishing instructions. Your awesomely Hobbity quilt will measure approximately 37" x 37" if you use the layout we have created. Fabric choices are your own.

There And Back Again

There and Back Again is a collaborative effort between four Fandom In Stitches designers, Michelle Thompson, Lilja Björk Sigurdórsdóttir, Schenley Pilgram, and Jennifer Ofenstein.
