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!!
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! :)
