Attention to Detail in American Patchwork & Quilting (June 2011)

Quite a few of you have written to tell me you saw my Attention to Detail table runner in the current (June 2011) issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.  Some wondered why I hadn’t posted about it on the blog.

Well, the reason is that my little tablerunner is late returning to me.  It  had tagged along American Patchwork & Quilting staff and done some traveling to quilt guild meeting(s?) since the publish of the magazine.

It’s back with me now!  Got it yesterday.  Being featured in American Patchwork & Quilting is another first for me.  So I am super excited about it.

You can see the applique is poofed up from being quilted over Hobbs Tuscany Wool batting.  For the actual quilting, I used YLI 100 silk instead of my usual Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton to give the overall quilting a finer look.  The fabrics are a combination of Anything but the Kitchen Sink, Jinny Beyer Palette, and Pindots – all by RJR.

Taking a little detour here… These butter leaf cookies are the STUFF!  I had picked up a box of the cookies at the store because they were on sale.  Now, I wish I had picked up ten boxes instead of one.  They taste a lot like the Danish cookies I used to love when I was a child, except they are much richer !!!

Back to quilting, the magazine showed my quilting schematic on one of the pages.  Take a look for ideas if you have trouble deciding what to quilt on a block like the one featured in the project.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a lovely day.  Now for the very serious question of the day:  Are you a fan of those Danish cookies I talked about?
