Cover Quilt


Quilts and More is one of my favorite quilt publications--they always have super cute projects that are quick to complete! And...the most recent issue has a quilt I pieced right on the cover!


Last spring I had a lot of fun working on a project designed by my friend Kate Spain. It was right before International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, and Kate's Terrain yardage had just become available.


One jelly roll of Terrain, a jelly roll of white, a little extra yardage--and a whole lot of fun later "Double the Fun" was a completed quilt! Using the jelly roll strips made this quilt so fast and fun to put together!


I went back and forth about which side was my favorite...I never could decide...I love both sides of this quilt! A good friend quilted this for me just in time so I could put it in my suitcase to take to quilt market (Thanks Gail)!


When I got my copy of the magazine the other day I was amazed at the company I was in...I  met so many of the other contributers at quilt market last spring or through blogging: KateJoanna, Camille, Monica, Aneela, Vanessa, and Dawn. There are some others whose work has inspired me, though I haven't "met" them--Jo Morton, Lauren + Jessi Jung, Lynette Jensen, and Sue Spargo. There are other designers, too...and their projects are all amazing as well.  In summary...this is a must-have issue! Thank you Kate and Lissa for inviting me to be a part of this terrific project!
