Quilting Around the Block in Quilter’s World (February 2011)

Happy New Year, my friends! Curious mind wants to know if you did anything fun and interesting last weekend. We got to spend some time with family, and being the nerd that I am, I also worked on and completed a book proposal.

Have you picked up your February 2011 copy of Quilter’s World?

Well, you see… my Quilting Around the Block article is in it! This article is Part 1 of a 2-part series on quilting I had the honor to write for Quilter’s World.

It is a four-page spread covering the different aspects of machine quilting a pieced quilt. I sought to answer the questions I ask myself when it comes to quilting a quilt – do I want to 1) emphasize the designs of the pieced blocks that make up the quilt, 2) create the effect of an overall texture, or 3) create an attractive texture that also highlights the piecing?

I would love to hear your feedback on the article if you get a chance to skim over the article. For my overseas readers who might have difficulty locating the magazine in print form, Quilter’s World does have an e-version. Click here to find out more:

This was a most fun project because it is my first technique-based article. It was a little different from my regular design-based projects. I was challenged to get out of my comfort zone and think a little differently on how to present a technique in-print. I learned a lot!

Thanks for stopping by. I wish you much fun and creativity in whatever you do this year! Blessings.
