I haven't bought a pattern in years

Me, too.   I took a certain amount of pride and pleasure from deconstructing easy patterns into their components.  Sometimes I'd get around to making the quilt, sometimes not.  My rationale was ... why should I pay for such an easy pattern?

But lately, I've had a slight change in my POV.  For some patterns, such as this one, I opted to buy the pattern simply to **support the designer**.  After all, she's earning a living or supplemental income from these patterns.  I can afford to buy the pattern.  Other patterns I'll buy are the complicted ones .. or ones that I don't want to bother with figuring out the composition.  :-)

Now, will I do that for every pattern I like? Probably not .. especially if the layout is dead simple.  Or if I can find the same idea online for free.  I've been quilting for long enough that for these kinds of patterns, where it's easily discernable what blocks are needed, I just don't need the directions ... or sometimes, even the yardage.  Goodness knows I have enough fabric in my stash already!

 I understand.  I'm married to one of those also.  He has some issues now that took me a long time to finally get him to see a doctor.

Glad you are slowly getting settled in Colorado.  I know it is a very big job to move from a house you have been in a long time.

I'm sure you had a great time with DJ.  Did you get to the German restaurant?  It's great.  Try it the next time if you missed it this time.

The pictures of you two on your cruse (on FB) were great.  Sorry you ended up sick but sounds like you are pacing yourselves so you should bounce back soon.  Yes, Please share pics of your projects!

So glad you are doing well taking your new med with no side effects.  Say hi to everyone as you gather on Zoom.  I have retreat on my calendar and would love to come to retreat and have some semblance of NORMAL.  Hopefully we'll be under construction by then!!
