Autumn Sunset

 Hello Everyone,

A little while ago, I was sent some beautiful batiks to play with and to use in making a new quilt design for a brand NEW quilting publication... Quilt It Today!

Of course, I could not pass up this opportunity to play with fabric, would you?? 


I started cutting and had some fun.  So many different fabrics give this quilt much more interest. 


I quilted an edge to edge design that had a slight vine, feather design.


I used a dark batik backing and the striped beige for the binding.  I love stripes on bindings.


Here is the quilt... doesn't it look right at home amongst the fallen New England leaves?  

Would you like to see it in the magazine??  I do...


Here is their photo shoot, it looks great doesn't it?? 

And guess what...


It made the cover!  My quilt is another cover girl!!  So excited!  

However, I can't seem to find a copy of this magazine.  I know they are in Joann stores, but we don't have one close by... I think I may be making a road trip!  Look at the price too... can't beat that!  

If you want to make this quilt, go out and get yourself a copy too!

They do have a website though, click here to see the site.  Once you get there, click on the tab for the designers and you will see my designer profile!  Again... very excited!

Until Next Time...
