101 Patchwork Projects


Have you seen 101 Patchwork Projects + Quilts 2011? It's going to be hitting newsstands soon.  And...


I received a few advance copies the other day because I have a pattern included in it (page 155)! I was really looking forward to seeing the layout and photography work...and I absolutely love it!



It's fun to have my pillow home, too--it's now sitting on a shelf waiting for me to finish the companion piece I'm making to go with it.


The project on the preceding page of the magazine is a very cute doll quilt...and I love how the editors photographed my pillow together with that quilt!


I just happen to have an extra copy to give away...if you'd like a chance to win a copy, just leave a comment telling me something you'd like to have a pattern for, and I'll draw a name Monday evening.  If you'd like an on-line source to purchase this magazine...you can order here.

Hoping to cross a few things off the list today and clean my studio for lots of sewing coming up next week!  Have a wonderful weekend!

I will be on the look-out for this magazine. The patterns look really good. I love your pillow pattern! I am currently in the look-out for a pattern for a Christmas tree skirt.

Another great project in print Sherri! I'd love the magazine. And as for what I like a pattern - maybe a table topper specific to a oval or round table!

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Cute little project! I'm always looking for round patterns for my round table. I like center toppers, but they are hard to find! Thanks for the chance!
