Light, bright, airy—and full of fun!
The new March/April ’14 issue of Quiltmaker is all of these and more. Let’s look at some highlights.
Need an easy baby quilt? Sprinkles fits the bill. This fat-quarter friendly pattern would also be perfect made scrappy with one unifying background. Shown in Hoffman California Fabrics.
We had a very cooperative little guy model Sprinkles for us. He happens to be my grandson, age 2. (Insert smiley grandma face here.)
Jo and Kelli Kramer had some serious fun with Square Dance. This 81″ x 97″ twin is strip pieced, and the wide open white spaces can be filled with gorgeous quilting if you like.
Another Patch Pal joins the QM menagerie. Regal Patch in the jungle grass is one of the best yet, don’t you agree? We have more Patch Pals up our sleeve so please watch upcoming issues.
Spinning Pinwheels fits into this issue’s theme of Quilting Full Circle. You might not guess it by looking, but it uses foundation piecing and fusible applique. Denise Russart is the designer. Fabrics by Moda.
Spot On carries the Quilting Full Circle theme forward. Pat Harrison’s design appears to be difficult but is rated easy! Fabric is from Robert Kaufman.
Our cover quilt was designed by QM Associate Editor Paula Stoddard and sewn by QM Graphic Designer Denise Starck. Round and Round is another example of a quilt that looks difficult but is oh-so-easy to make! You’ll love Paula’s ingenious technique. The cheerful fabrics are assorted Tonga batiks by Timeless Treasures.
And that’s just the beginning!
