this recipe and thought it sounded too good not to try; the Bourbon Sauce was the clincher.
To say that the sauce is loaded with bourbon is an understatement - and apparently the Bon Ton sauce has even more bourbon in it, which I cannot imagine... It is delicious but another time I would start with half the amount and see if it needed any more; I didn't see the 'to taste' notation until it was all in the pot. I think I'd also cut back on some of the sugar.

The pattern is called Hugs 'n Kisses and I found it, and a tutorial on Pinterest. Looks like I might be a little behind the times because the tutorial was posted about 3 years ago. So me. Anyway, once I had the fabrics in my hand I thought, 'Where's the trouble in just trying a block or two?'
That led to this...
The blocks are 5" square and the tutorial is very and easy to follow - the only thing I'm doing differently is scoring the sewing lines with my Hera marker rather than a pen or pencil to avoid any marks working their way through to the right side of the fabrics over time.
I'm not going to use the striped fabric that came with the collection and I've switched up the yellow for a yellow gingham and then added a few more of my own. So many of my fabrics are a completely different genre so I'm just going to sew and let the fabric decide for me how the quilt will be. So much for resolve....M
