Ballicatters (Slashed Squares) - Weekend Warrior Mini Retreat



This quick and quirky quilt top can easily be done in a weekend, so you can feel like you accomplished a
complex project in a relatively short amount of time.

Inspired by Madison Cottage Designs’ “Cinnamon Toast”, Colleen McConnell drafted her own version of
the pattern adding extra blocks and borders for ultimate snuggleworthiness. Course participants will
receive a copy of the original pattern, as well as Colleen McConnell’s updated instructions (less fuss,
more fast).

This is ideal for a pre cut stack of 10” squares but can also be done with Fat Quarters or yardage.
Colleen’s version also provides directions for using 5” strips.

This is a 2 day workshop (10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday)
Day 1 – Iron, sort, cut, sew 
Day 2 – trim, layout design, assemble quilt centre, add borders, book time on long-arm

For this quilt you will require:

42 ten-inch squares. [NB: This translates into: one layer cake (42 ten inch squares in
complementary fabrics); Or one package of 40 ten inch squares plus yardage for extras (cut a
five inch strip from inner and outer border fabrics to get the required amount)
 1y Fabric One (inner border, extra squares); or ¾ metre
 2y Fabric Two (outer border, extra squares)
