Where We are Published: American Patchwork and Quilting

Hey, have you seen the latest issue of American Patchwork and Quilting?  It would be this one, the February 2020 issue?  I love the snowball quilt on the cover.

What I love best though…is this…

It’s our quilt Playtime.  If you’re a long time reader you might recognize this quilt.  I made it with the intention of gifting it to Kramer’s great nephew.  I ended loving the quilt so much that I decided to submit it.

I did and Quilts and More picked it up.  They needed it ASAP and Carla our good friend from Longarm Quilting Inspirations, quilted it for us in a something like a 2 day time frame.  Carla is awesome.  It was published with them in Spring of 2018.

Well I needed to gift a quilt and I likely wasn’t going to get this one back from the publisher for several months so I went ahead and made another one.  It’s pictured below…
This picture is from the archives from when Ruby was still with me.    For this  version of the quilt, I got a little more gutzy with the improv piecing.


I think I like the first one that was published best.  This one is a little more improv making it not look quite as clean…I really liked them both.

I ended up putting a fun farm print on the back.

I had to laugh as the is the picture from the magazine shows a baby with the quilt.  Doesn’t it look like Georgia??  Sorry the image is a little grainy.  It was the best I could do.

This little one looks older than Georgia but still, if you didn’t know I can see how someone might confuse them.

So that’s the story of the Playtime quilt.  I think it’s so appropriately named, making it as both the maker and the baby will have “playtime”.

  1. It looks like a super easy and fun quilt to make and I love that you have Carla do some of the long arming. I don’t feel so bad that I pay to have my quilts done, lol
