City View Quilt in Generation Q Magazine!

Generation Q Magazine with City View QuiltMy City View quilt pattern is in the current issue of Generation Q Magazine!

In the magazine you will see a one page spread of the quilt with a model (That’s not me! I’m not the model…..). And then to find the pattern, you actually go to the Generation Q website and you will find it in the Playdates section. I believe this is a way for the Gen Q folks to feature more projects in an efficient manner. More bang for your buck!

I found the inspiration for this quilt a few years ago when Sheila Sinclair Snyder and I were attending a longarm machine convention in Tacoma. We took a tram ride to the convention center, and along the way we passed through a downtown section. I looked up and saw a building with a particular pattern of windows….and the idea for this quilt was born! It just shows you that quilt designs can come from anywhere!

Happy quilting!

Mint Julep is a Frosty Treat for Summer Quilting

The Sept/Oct issue of McCall’s Quilting Magazine is out on newstands now! And why is this important? Because my Mint Julep quilt is in this issue! Yes, I’m pretty excited about it. If you have a subscription to the magazine, you’ve probably already received yours, but if you don’t have a subscription, you can pick one up at a quilt shop or magazine vendor near you.

As with my last quilt, the folks at McCall’s Magazine have prepared kits for your shopping pleasure. This way you don’t have to worry about which fabrics to choose….they’ve done the work for you. And they have made a kit for both the green or pink colors. Pick your favorite color and dive in!

Click here for the MINT JULEP or the PINK TULIP. And send me those photos when you finish! I’d love to see how yours turns out!
