Additional Materials Needed:

I used a strip of fabric for the trim from a line that has unfortunately been discontinued. Made by Windham Fabrics and part of their Williamsburg Sampler collection, I have just enough left for about 30 of you to be able to have the same sweet edging. I will make the strips available in my etsy shop for as long as I have it on hand.
I will also make available to anyone purchasing this pattern a free downloadable .pdf tutorial for finishing the pin square; in the tutorial there are step-by-step instructions with color photographs.
This design is now available in my etsy shop, and will be going out to my distributors and the shops on my automatic shipments list soon. If you prefer to bypass etsy and order directly through me, you can send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
