Errata: November 22, 2011: Please note that it would be best to order 7/8-1yd of each of the 5 fabrics as the original pattern states 3/4 yd and that would be very tight and leave no room for error.Very pleased to see my first official (as in published) quilt design under Cloud9 Fabrics on the pages of Fat Quarterly's Fall Inspired edition which will be released on October 7.
This is one of those projects I just dabbled with on a computer and before my eyes, it fell into perfect place. And it is so simple to do! All the details will be in the issue, so check it out. I must thank and applaud Kristen Danis for making this actual quilt. I had done a block with best of intentions and quickly found that I just couldn't do it in time for the issue, so Kristen to the rescue! And she did a spectacular job. If you're going to Quilt Market, you'll be seeing this in the booth.
This is a great size for tucking under at football games and lying on the grass for a little nibble in the park, or just to toss over your favorite chair ready for the cozying when you finally have time to read your magazines.
This was made with 5 prints from our current Across the Pond. Would work well with the orange tones, too! But even my husband said... "oooh, it looks all watery in those fabrics". That it does! Mission accomplished.
Not familiar with Fat Quarterly? Oh, do check them out. It's a great e-zine that is chock full of modern projects and inspiration. Each issue focuses on a theme and designs are contributed from today's hot quilters and crafters (which now I can say I am one!). In this issue there's 15 projects and at $5... I mean, really. It's a complete steal. The issue will go live on October 7, go here to get it!
More thrills abound because these very same lovely editors are about to become official authors of a book! Check out Shape Workshop for Quilters coming our way soon.
