Cover Girl: String Circles Quilt in Popular Patchwork

Popular Patchwork Cover

I have some fun news . . . my String Circles quilt from Modern Bee is featured on the cover of February's Popular Patchwork magazine!

The issue also includes the full quilt pattern. So you might see it on newsstands if you are located in the U.K.

It's been a true honor to read all of your positive feedback from the book and to see so many beautiful projects in the works from the members of Modern InstaBee (#moderninstabee2014) on Instagram!

Playing Cards Quilt

I also shared a recent quilty finish on my other blog Craft Buds, for the Safari Moon blog hop. Head on over to see more pics of my Playing Cards quilt, which is the February pattern from Modern Bee. 

I'm going to attempt to sew a version of each pattern from the book this year. Do you think I can do it?!

Travel Pillow and Shawl for Quilts and More Magazine

Hello again! As I mentioned, I'm catching up this week on blogging about some patterns I wrote for publication. This winter, I had the chance to sew a fun and quick project for the Spring 2014 issue of Quilts and More magazine.

My project is a neck pillow and travel shawl sewn with Cuddle from Shannon Fabrics. Yellow and grey are my favorite colors together, so it was fun to have these fabrics to work with.

This suitcase just makes me want to take off somewhere tropical! For the neck pillow, I used Barcelona and the Shawl is Ibiza (with grey vine on the back).

This issue of Quilts and More magazines is now available on newsstands, and I'm thankful to be included!

Chevron Snuggle Blanket and Pet Bed for Generation Q Magazine

I'm going to spend some time over the next couple weeks updating the blog on some magazine projects I've had the privilege to create!

Since there's a new issue of Generation Q out now (featuring my friend Sara on the cover!), I figured it was about time to blog about the previous issue. Hah!

Chevron Snuggle Throw and Pet Bed

Several months ago, I designed a blanket and pet bed using chevron solids from Shannon Fabrics. I had lost the battery charger for my camera at the time, and sadly had to rely on camera phone pics. I then happily shipped the projects off for the Nov/Dec issue of Generation Q Magazine. The pet bed is a free online project!

I thought it was really fun that my project appeared back to back with my friend Amy's pillow!

Generation Q Magazine Nov/Dec 2013 

I really enjoyed meeting the Gen Q team back at Fall Quilt Market. I had a lot of fun designing this throw for Shannon Fabrics, which are a really high-quality minky. I've written more about my experiences with quilting with minky on the Craftsy quilting blog.
