We are celebrating the release of our brand new Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Fall ’15 issue! This issue features 17 amazing quilt patterns (plus five bonus table runner patterns) inspired by our original Quiltmaker quilt blocks. The quilts in this issue cover a wide variety of quilting techniques including curved piecing, foundation paper piecing, fusible appliqué and all the basics, too. The designs range from traditional to whimsical – think owl quilts, flower quilts, hot air balloon quilts, and even a dinosaur quilt!
The issue is on newsstands now, and you can also grab a copy from our online store. Here’s a peek inside at some of the fabulous quilt designs featured in the issue:
Lava Lamps: This groovy beauty is one of my favorites from the issue. Designed by Toby Lischko, this is the perfect quilt for showing off large-scale prints and trying your hand at curved piecing. The original block – Nouveau Riche, block #181 – comes from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 2. A digital quilt pattern is also available for this quilt.
The Branch Bunch: I have a slight obsession with owl decor, so this quilt was love at first sight! Designed by Shayla Wolf, it’s a wonderful project for using up scraps and I love the design’s nod to “The Brady Bunch” opening credits. The original block – Hootie, block #611 – comes from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 7. A digital quilt pattern is also available.
Tahiti Dreams: If this quilt doesn’t make you long for a tropical beach getaway, I don’t know what will. Designed by Jo Moury, it features easy traditional quilt blocks, fusible appliqué and hand embroidered accents. Lovely! The original block – Garden Trellis, block #950 – comes from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 10. A digital quilt pattern is available.
Pave the Way: Melissa Corry created a unique two block design by rotating her Pavers Stone block in this easy-to-piece throw quilt pattern. The original Pavers Stone, block #1072, comes from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 11. A digital quilt pattern is available.
Carousel Crosswalk: Two quilt blocks team up to make this happy quilt. AnneMarie Chany took advantage of similar piecing in the corners of the original blocks – her Dutch Chain, block #1070 from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 11 and Margie Ullery’s Sweet Peas, block #698 from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 7. A digital quilt pattern is available.
