New Issue: Quiltmaker May/June ’17March 28, 2017 / bynnettles / Categories : Feeds
The May/June ’17 issue of Quiltmaker hits newsstands next week, and there is so much to love inside this edition! There is, as always, a great selection of quilt patterns — including scrap quilts, a fun I Spy quilt and more. There’s also a fabulous Bonnie Hunter block and more great quilting motifs. And, we also have a few “extra” things in this issue we’re so excited to share with you! We are kicking off two new series that will introduce you to quilting on a domestic or longarm quilting machine. We have helpful hints for designing with pre-cuts. Plus, we have another all-new feature to help you design quilts YOUR way: coloring pages for some designs so you can plan your own color palettes!
Let’s take a closer look at some of the great quilts inside this new issue:
Skip to My Lou: Sharon Parcel combined a traditional block with playful modern fabric prints to create this happy throw quilt. The design is made up of easy-to-piece 6″ blocks and the finished size is 57″ x 63″. (We’ve also included several alternate size options with the pattern if you’d prefer to make it another size.) A kit is available for a limited time.
Highland Roses: Create an elegant and timeless quilt with this new pattern from Wendy Sheppard. Large 14″ blocks and an on-point setting make this quilt easy to create. The finished size is 80″ x 80″ and a time-saving kit is available for a limited time.
Forest Floor: The colors of nature come to life on this striking quilt designed by QM editorial assistant Kelly Eisinger. Kelly used batiks in a variety of colors to create her quilt — easily plan your own color palette with the coloring page included in the magazine. The finished size of the quilt is 62″ x 80″. A kit is also available for a limited time.
Pinwheel Giggles: If you’re looking for a sweet baby quilt, don’t miss this adorable pattern from Eileen Fowler. The design features simple pieced blocks in a medallion setting. Whip it up quickly to create a special gift. Finished size is 46 1/2″ x 46 1/2″.
