Where We are Published: Quilts and More

Kelli and I are kind of silly.  We either like scrappy quilts, quick quilts, or old traditional quilts.  On our latest adventure in being published we designed something that falls into the quick quilt category.

I know people are often looking for a way to make a quick gift or add a quick seasonal decoration to their home.  We came up with this….We made ours with two jelly rolls-one red, one white.

The people at Quilts and More made it up in another color option.  What do you think?

This one is scrappy and I really like it.  I can totally see making it with recycled shirts….what a great quick guy quilt.  Here’s a fun fact, they are offering the pattern on their website for free.  You can find it here.  It’s always fun for us to see the different color way that the publishers come up with.

I spotted a copy of the magazine at my grocery store…here I am with a copy of the magazine.  I know it’s silly but it still doesn’t seem real that we have things published until I actually see the magazine at the news stand.

Yep…there I am sporting my LuLaroe wild print leggings….My grocery list is covering up part of the cover.  Oh well.  That’s the real live me…and that’s what the cover of the magazine so you know what to look for if you want to purchase a copy.

The quilt made the rounds and ended up at Quilt Market.  How cool is that?  They asked if we minded if we didn’t get it back right away..of course we didn’t.  We love the honor of having a quilt there.  As soon as the quilt gets here, we’ll show it off in another blog post.

Today we’re sharing our finished quilt at  Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts.

    Okay can I say that I love this pattern and seeing it done both ways really inspires me on lots of color possibilities. Love those leggings, they would be an awesome fabric for quilting!

    WOW! I love the red and white one! It makes a great zig-zag, while the blue one doesn’t…just looks like bricks. Not that there’s anything wrong with bricks…but the zig-zag is sooo very eye catching!

    I’ve started a quilt for Quilts of Valor. I’m thinking this quilt would be neat if the red and blue were combined. I’ll be keeping my eye open for that new magazine too.

    Well, I have to say I like your red and white one best. It is well-defined and sharp; I like the two-color comb, and the fact that it is made of only two jelly rolls makes it fast and easy. Congrats on another publishing!
