Twisted Ribbons in Quilty Magazine

You GUYS!! I'm so excited to finally be able to share this quilt!

Katie (aka my sister) designed and made this quilt herself. She has been trying for a while now to get into designing and selling/publishing her own patterns. And guess what?! This one is ON THE COVER of Quilty Magazine!!

Hey Quilty March/April 2017 issue cover

This is the new March/April issue that just came out. 

And I'm actually not too surprised it made the cover because this one just turned out so awesome. I love the warm vs. cool color scheme and the overall layout of it. I like the diagonal spiral effect it has.

Plus it can be made easily by a confident beginner quilter.

Oh. Yeah. The quilting.... So, I wanted to keep the directional effect going with the geese, so I accentuated that with some ruler-work, and filled in with a straight-lined meander.

The blue/black areas are impossible to see here, but I quilted large swirls and pebbles.

Ahh. Here it is!

More of the back.

I can't wait to actually get my hands on a copy. Right now the website says it is out of stock already. But I'm sure you could find it at a quilt or craft store. I don't have one close by me and we are getting 5-7 inches of snow today, so I guess I will have to wait until it is back in stock.

This is just a thrill to see something you've worked on on the cover of a magazine! Who knows, we could do it again! :)
