Newport



Introducing "Newport," another quilt from my book A Quilting Life: Creating a Handmade Home. I love every piece of fabric in this quilt. This quilt is "on tour" right now, and I can't wait for it to come home! I fell in love with Sandi Henderson's Secret Garden collection a couple of years ago and knew I needed a large block quilt to showcase the beautiful prints--simple designs are always good for large prints. 



As I was posting these photos I thought this just might be the perfect pattern for novelty print fabrics, too--a wonderful way to show them off without having to cut them into smaller pieces.



I love close-up shots of quilts...Korindi did an amazing job (as always) with these photos.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I just bought your book the other night and love it. I set up the iPad with kindle version on the cutting table and am starting to make Pinwheel Picnic. The directions are perfect, easy to follow. Thankyou, Joan

Sherri, I would love to have your book but I can not buy it online where you said. Is there any other way we could arrange it? Would you have it in Amazon or similar place?

That was one of my favs in your book, too. We're always looking for places to use our large-scale prints, aren't we?

Wow gorgeous!! You definitely inspire me!! I've just recently gotten back into quilting. I did a little bit in junior high school and have now refallen in love with it. It's amazing how sometimes time makes you forget what you used to love to do. So happy creativity is back. Thank you!!

Anyone know where you can find the fabric? I want to make the quilt with those same fabrics!
