All Stacked Up

Hello Everyone,

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and condolences on for our sweet little Beanie. She is missed very much.

Back in April, Quilt Magazine contacted me and asked if I would design a traditional coin quilt for their specialty publication Simple Quilts and Sewing. Of course, I said yes. The fabrics I was to use are fall like colors from Wilmington Prints.

Do you remember this blog post? Those strips were the ones for this quilt.


Here is a peek at the quilt. I chose to do fall like quilting too! Leaves all over the entire surface.


I really love the look of the quilting on this one. The thread used was to match the background fabric.


Then from the leftover strips, a pieced binding was made and applied. I think it really frames up the quilt.


Here is the quilt out on my lawn. Great little lap size.


Here it is in the magazine!! Great photo!


Yup... there I am too! This was a quick and easy project to make and would make a great gift. You can make it too!


Simple Quilts hit the newsstands on 9/27! So they are available. I don't have it yet in the shop, but as soon as they come in, I will let you know.

By the way, what a wonderful showing of 1st month's blocks for the Blogger BOM!! Go take a look at the Flickr group to see the combos of fabrics that everyone is choosing. Fantastic!

Also, I made a link list on my right sidebar which will be a permanent list for you to the specific tutorials for the BOM. This way you don't have to search if you forget on the 25th of the month! Thank you, Krista for the idea!

I love the print/pdf button, I wish everyone had one on every blog! There are lots of tutorials I would love to print out as a pdf but can't. Also I'm very excited about the magazine. I thing simple is the key word when it comes to me making a quilt, so I will certainly be looking for this on my store shelf.

Congratulations! I'm going to teach my friends 7 year old to sew and this might be a good project. A quilt that she will like and one that her minimalist and modernist mother will like having on display...

oooh, pretty quilt. Congrats on being published. I'll have to go out and get me a copy of this issue.

I love that quilt - the leaves look so pretty!
I had a bit of trouble with my BOM, I think the fabric doesn't work and looks a bit ugly. I may still do another one but I'd like to make it work somehow :)

How exciting to be asked to design for a magazine. The quilt turned out great. Amazing how such a simple pattern can turn out so nice. The binding is a perfect touch too.

How cool Jackie! Now you're kind of like famous or something! I love the colors in that quilt and the quilting design is fabulous! Was that freehand or did you use a template of some kind? The white thread looks great on the colors!

The white thread sunk right in and looks beautiful. I am looking for the new magazines and not finding any of them right now... It is very discouraging! My Picture is in the Nov/Dec McCall's. I'm not as FAMOUS as you though...
