Where We are Published: Scrappy Delight

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.

    Thanks for sharing this great quilt! As I was reading the post and looking at the photos, I thought this would be an easy quilt to piece, then you mentioned how easy it is. I can’t wait to get my copy of the magazine, then pick some fabric to get started! Thanks for sharing.

    Just gorgeous! Everything about it is so perfect. Sometimes we just have to keep a thing we love. Life is short, the few things we keep for ourselves will be passed on soon enough.

    Hi Jo, I was wondering if you had your list of cross stitch people you listen to? I thought I had saved that post you put it in, but I can’t find it. Your quilts are all so nice and cross stitch pieces also. Thank you

    Your quilt would be perfect for a child, along with 5 Xs and Os, as the center makes a perfect tic-tac-toe board set on point!! Congratulations on having it published!!
