Maybe that’s why the cover of the Jan/Feb issue is so appealing. Red and aqua rule that cover! The quilt is called Hearts Afloat. It was designed and pieced by Bev Getschel and quilted by Lynette Gelling. The fabrics are Smitten by Barb Tourtillotte for Clothworks.

Give it some thought: Where else have you seen red and aqua? Might be a perfect combination for your next quilt project!

    Very pretty cover… I’m liking red and aqua more and more . What about tangerine tango, the 2012 color of the year, and aqua?
