HI everyone! Happy Spring! We've been enjoying spring-like weather here in MN for a couple of weeks now. Way above average temps., many temperature records have been broken. It's been lovely!
The spring issues of many magazines are out now or soon will be. Simple quilts is one of them and I have a bed runner pattern in this issue (page 16). I hope to post a picture of the bed runner later, but for now, this is the cover shot so you can look for it in your local quilt shop or where ever you might pick up magazines. I got a copy in Wal-mart yesterday.
The bed runner uses a 2-1/2" pre-cut strip pack from Blank quilting featuring their Inspiration fabrics. These fabrics are teal and white, very light and airy. Also, when fabric is purchased from Blank quilting by the quilt shop, Blank donates to Ovarian cancer research, a win-win for everyone. Kits are available from Millie P's quilt shop (link to the right). I'll post a picture later, my scan was less than wonderful.
Other things that I have up-coming in magazine are: a block in the 100 Blocks spring issue (watch for this and a chance to win the magazine, go to quiltmaker.com and sign up), Belle Fleur (shown below in a previous post) will be in the June issue of Quilt Magazine and kits will be available from Quilt Cove (Link to the right), and lastly, my line of fabric will be in a quilt featured in McCall's Quick Quilts, the June issue I think. I will have kits for the black and white fabrics on my website.
My newest line of fabric is available on my website now. Hit the purchase fabric tab and scroll down to Thngamajigs to see it.
