Mending Fences in UK’s POPULAR PATCHWORK (April 2014)


Hello Friends,  thanks so much for your get well wishes.  I am not feeling any better today, but I am hanging in there (by a thread, pun intended, ha!) Nonetheless, I am most excited to share with you my “joint venture” feature with Lynette Anderson in the latest issue of Popular Patchwork (April 2014), a UK publication!  A special thank you to Kay Harmon for constructing the quilt top so that I could jump right into quilting it.

Mending Fences

Lynette added the applique portion to my pieced design, and made the quilt into a really fun one!



Here are more shots of the quilt:




Mending Fences uses fabrics from Lynette Anderson’s Mending Fences fabrics.

You may recall I already have two other featured quilts, both named Farm Crossing, made using fabrics from the same collection.  Click here, and here to view additional quilt photos, and for information on the magazines in which the quilts are featured.



Now back to UK Popular Patchwork’s Mending Fences quilt… this quilt afforded me many opportunities to do some fun quilting.  The following pictures will show you what I mean.  Quilting is done using Aurifil Mako 50 cotton threads over Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting.  The quilting is done totally unmarked and free-handed.














See what I mean about the quilting being “fun”?  Can you tell I thoroughly enjoyed the quilting the quilt?

There are many things I like about this quilt, but I think what I love best is the feel of coziness that permeates throughout.

Now, I am not sure where one could buy Popular Patchwork issues in the States. If you do, please let me know!

Thanks for stopping by.  I would love to hear your thoughts on this quilt.  Hugs to you all.

p.s.  I am still waiting for favorable weather conditions to take pictures of my other currently featured quilts.  Stay tuned for details.
