Spring Blooms in THE QUILTER (March 2010)

I received my copies of the March 2010 issue of The Quilter yesterday. I was quite pleased with how my quilt was photographed:

This quilt is basically a log-cabin quilt, spiced up with appliqued twirly flowers:

The fabrics are from RJR‘s Sweet Pea Collection:

Quilting was done freehand on my home machine with Hobbs’ Tuscany Silk Batt. If you have been visiting me, you would know that The Tuscany Silk Batt has become my favorite batting to use in place of cotton. It quilts very nicely, and is light and very manageable – perfect for a home machine quilter. Can you see the pebbles I have quilted on the log cabin blocks?

In case you are wanting to make this quilt in a different color way, may I offer the following for your consideration?

1. A fresh and clean look

2. An rich look

3. How about a 30’s feedsack look?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fun day! For those of us who have been living in icy cold, spring shouldn’t be too long from now! Blessings to you all!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to The Quilter, and always, kudos to the editorial staff at The Quilter.

  1. It definitely looks like spring! I love layouts in the different colourways too. It’s slowly getting milder here — hope it’s warming up there too.

    • What’s really great about this website is that it provides really valuable insights while also being funny. I really do wish more people would write more content like this one, almost all of the stuff online are complete garbage. Thank you for putting this up on your site. I really like your writing style and how well you express your thoughts.

  2. While I was reading my copy of The Quilter I came across your newest submission and instantly fell in love with it. You did such a beautiful job. It will be put aside for a future project.
