Pop Squares!

Hello Everyone,

Before you read through this "must read" post, don't forget to enter my AccuQuilt GO! giveaway here. But hurry, I will be waiting right here for your return.

Great, you are back! Now onto Pop Squares. If you remember a few posts ago, I gave you a little sneak peek. Really little... Well here is the full monty, so to speak.


This quilt I designed, pieced, and quilted. I used fabrics from Blank Quilting which can be found here.


It is a beginner quilt, with simple shapes. Squares, rectangles and sashing to form a pleasing design.


A mottled red backing and binding to finish it off.


The quilting design I used was an edge to edge design with a daisy motif. I used Superior Threads Rainbows to enhance the design.


Here is the quilt in its entirety. So you say, what is so special about this quilt... well it is the first quilt that I have published!!


Yup, you can find this quilt in Quick Quilts Fall 2010 Issue #117. Here is the spread. Wait... a closer look for you...



Yes, yes, that is me in print!! Pinch me, I am so excited!! But even more exciting, YOU too can make this quilt. I am the exclusive shop for kitting!! The kit can be found by clicking here. The magazine can also be found in my shop as well. You can find it by clicking here.

I have also kitted 2 other quilts and 2 bag for this issue of the magazine and they ALL can be found in the kit section of my website.

So in short, I am excited at my first design published. But rest assured, it will not be the last!! Special thanks to Lisa for all her guidance!

Oh and don't forget to enter the AccuQuilt GO! giveaway here. Only one day left!! Hurry!! One more thing... on Friday there will be another giveaway, so mark your calendars to stop back then!

Until Next Time...
