Lighthouse Steps is a fun, modern quilt design that's great for this quilt along.  the design uses 2 1/2" strip packs or jelly rolls, along with a background and contrasting background.  
It was fun to see this quilt made in Island Batik's Painted Blossoms line and featured on the cover of their fall/winter line catalog!  So that's what we'll use for inspiration.
All the details will be on Kate's blog - so follow along, and sign up for the quilt along newsletter so you don't miss a thing.  The first blog post shares more quilt along info, tips for choosing fabrics, and the blog and quilt along schedule.  Take a look right now!!
