When I first started quilting 6 years ago I thought magazines were a great way to see lots of styles and patterns, so I went to Ebay and bought up tons of older magazines, then I discovered blogs and tutorials so those magazines gathered dust. "Book It" has me digging through those magazines and I can see how far I've come, easy patterns that I'm far past and styles that are just not "me". The magazines have been flying out of here and I'm planning what to do with that extra shelf space, so once again "Thank You Sharon".
Now when I buy a magazine it's because of a quilt with lots of color and this one certainly fits.
Love of Quilting Jan/Feb 2014
Gumdrops by Nancy Mahoney, I always like her quilts.
I actually followed her directions, except to change the size to a baby quilt, I've never done that before.
I really love this one, it's all appliqued so it went together fast and easy, the blocks are only 4" each. I outline stitched for the quilting so it's soft and puffy after washing.
"Book It" is the brain child of Sharon at Vroomans Quilts and has been growing every month. Pretty much anything that makes you want to make a quilt works, make the quilt and cross it off your bucket list, we can all relate to that. Why not join us? Fun and easy, love it!
Oh I do love this!! Great use of color and movement of pattern - great baby quilt. I like Nancy's patterns, too.ReplyDelete
