Hey…have you seen the latest issue of Quilts and More? It’s the Summer 2022 issue. This is what the cover looks like.
Here is our project…
Here’s the spread…
Does the quilt look familiar to you? It might. We had this quilt in our shot as a down load. Kelli and I made this quilt back in about 2016 or so when we contemplated possibly writing another quilt book.
We both just loved this quilt…we loved the simple quick design…and super easy as it started out with squares.
It was windy when I was snapping some photos.
The place where I hang quilts here seems to catch the wind.
I made it as four huge blocks and then sewed them together. I didn’t want a square quilt for this so added the top and bottom two rows. You could easily make it square by adding one colored and one background row on each of the sides.
I feel really bad because I can’t remember for sure but I think this was a fabric line from Art Gallery. I don’t remember what it is. The fabric is SUPER soft and just awesome. I love that it really doesn’t look like a fabric line.
The true colors are in the photo above. I laid it out on the ground and the colors washed out.
The teal color is really a favorite of mine. It doesn’t beat red as my favorite color but it’s definitely second best. I used it to bind the quilt.
Here is a peek of the backing fabric. Oh, I loved that too.
I just love the busy printed neutrals. So pretty!!
Here is your Rosie picture!!
In the past, I’ve never been able to take outside pictures of her on quilts because I was afraid she’d run away. Now with her inground fencing, I am going to give it a try on the next quilt.
One last picture before I sign off…
Oh…this will always be one of my favorite quilts. It’s one that I’ve had the opportunity to give away MANY times. But, I always keep it. I like it that much.
