I just received this issue yesterday with my latest Christmas quilt in it called Trimming the Tree! I really enjoyed making this quilt from the Winterbury line by RJR Fabrics! The bow was an older block that I added a thin border to and the tree block is my own new version that I really love. I've been wanting to make a quilt for a long time with a version of the tree block, and this one is just perfect for my needs! I also sell another version of this pattern in a table runner that is now in Keepsake Quilting catalog!
I have a pic from the magazine, and I've added my own picture as well so you can see the full quilt! I've added a close up of the quilting too.
The newest issue of Fons and Porter now has my Lover's Walk quilt, using the Berkley Square line by Benartex. This was a fun quilt to do, using only 3 blocks and rotating them around the corner stars. See it also in Electric Quilt's blog dated Aug 2nd http://www.doyoueq.com/blog/?p=2633 using this link.
In the July/Aug issue of Fons and Porter it has another quilt I designed for Benartex from the Floral Fancies line. It's a cute line using panel squares.
Fall market work is well on it's way, and I'll have more to share soon. I'm also making the time to work on a favorite project with my friends for a personal quilt using the pineapple block and a pineapple ruler that makes the process so much easier. I have dedicated myself to at least one day a week making something for myself that is not work related. It was necessary for my own sanity and happiness! LOL! So TGIF has a whole new meaning for me now! Getting together with friends, sharing and enjoying their company and learning a few things along the way, some quilting related, some not. Life is good, and I'm so grateful for God in my life and my family and friends. I can't leave this post without the latest picture of my sweet little grandson. He is changing everyday-his Mom and Dad say his hair is getting lighter in color, he still has those blue eyes and he just advanced to a new size in diapers! Now you know I'm a really over the top in love Grandma without a doubt! Until next time, Keep Quilting!
