Where We’re Published: American Patchwork and Quilting

We have a quilt in a magazine again.  We’ve been on a bit of a roll.

It’s in this edition of American Patchwork and Quilting- April 2020.  It hit the newstand on February 7th so if you’re interested, keep your eye out of a copy.


I am in love with the cover quilt.  Doesn’t that look “so me”….but again, it’s a quilt I’d make for myself so it gets put on the back burner.  I read that this quilt is going to be the quilt along quilt.  So if you want to make it and need some motivation, join the Facebook quilt along from American Patchwork and Quilting.

Here’s our quilt.

This is a fun quilt as I made it from leftovers from a previous quilt we had published.  This one…

Quilty-2
This was in Quilty Magazine.

I had a whole bunch of leftover half square triangles from the star points of the original quilt and used them to make the quilt below.  How fun!!


I love making something out of nothing.

Here’s a close up of the quilting….

A-Star-is-born-3
The quilting is my favorite freemotion motif.  Here’s a Youtube video you can watch to see how it’s done.

This was a fun project and a great way to tackle and use some of my half square bonus triangles.  If you don’t have bonus triangles, no problem.  You can make them from fabric.

As always we so enjoyed working with the ladies at American Patchwork and Quilting.

    I like the cover quilt, too, but I’m not in any hurry to make more flying geese after Bonnie’s mystery. I am better at them, but I could use some lessons, I think.

    Your baby quilt is so cute. Making something from nothing is a bonus.

    Have a good weekend.

    Just got my issue in the mail yesterday. Love the cover quilt too. Tiny parts, but tempting. Love it when I find one of your quilts along the way in a magazine. Feel like it’s a quilt made by a friend. The star quilt was darling. It’s strong point was the turquoise background as I have used turquoise or yellow for a quilt background, and the color always makes a quilt special.

    I love making something out of nothing as well. And for flying geese, I took a class on Craftsy some years back called repiecing the past. The teacher who I think was Kay Wood Taught us that the geese always lay flat. In other words, press the seams toward the outer triangles so that the inner triangle lays flat. This is contrary to how Bonnie taught us for frolic. Kaye also told us to put the left triangle on first. press, seam towards triangle and then add the right triangle. I use this technique most often and it works and creates less bulk.

    When I saw the cover quilt, I thought that was the quilt you submitted! Your quilt is really cute. I’ll pick up a magazine at JoAnn’s the next time I’m there.
