Have you seen the latest issue of Quiltmaker? It’s the January/February ’18 issue. I’ve been starting to get “congratulations” emails from blog readers as they’ve gotten their issue in the mail and seen our contribution.
We have a project in the magazine…this quilt…
Want to see it in full view?
That’s not quite a full view either. Try this picture.
Kelli and I made this quilt top sometime ago. After we wrote our quilt book we initially thought we’d write another (we’ve since changed out mind) and we put this quilt together with a second book in mind. It’s been sitting as top for quite some time. Finally I finished it and we submitted it to Quiltmaker and they snapped it up.
We made it with a fat quarter bundle of fabric…Horizons by Kate Spain for Moda.
It could easily be made with any scraps though as long as you have three colors.
I first thought to make it up as a baby quilt. Look at the corner quadrant. See how that would be a cute baby quilt?
Well then I got thinking what if I made four “baby quilt” sized and put them together. That’s what we did. I LOVED the center diamond that formed.
My daughter Kalissa says that the binding should be the darkest color of the quilt. I tend to agree but made this time, we didn’t order a dark colors when we made this. UGH. I wish is would have been the dark teal but that’s okay…it’s not terrible.
The larger green print, also from the fabric line, is the backing.
I tried to get a good picture of the quilting motif. It’s my standard design.
When the box came from Quiltmaker with the quilt being returned there was a note in the box.
Isn’t that sweet? We love working with Quiltmaker too!!
I know you all love a Ruby picture at the end of each quilt finish but on the day I wrote this post, Ruby was at the vet….you’ll have to settle for a Carver picture. He’s equally as cute and doesn’t shed!!
I’m off…I have to start on a quilt for a December wedding. Mmmmm. Yep. Didn’t start it yet nor do I know what I’m going to make. Ahhhh!!
