New Special Issue: Quiltmaker Reader Favorites Summer ’17June 16, 2017 / bynnettles / Categories : Feeds
We have a brand new special issue hitting newsstands soon: Quiltmaker Reader Favorites Summer ’17. This special collector’s edition features 16 of our most popular patterns ever. There’s a classic Bonnie Hunter scrap quilt, traditional designs, sweet baby quilts, holiday-themed quilts and more. We remade some of these tried and true favorites in fresh, new fabric, plus you’ll find additional color and design option ideas all throughout the issue.
Here are some of the favorites that made the list:
My Neighborhood: This darling design was inspired by a vintage 19th century schoolhouse quilt. Mix up stripes, plaids and “shot” cottons for the look we achieved, or bring your own style to each house. The finished size of the quilt is 54″ x 64″.
Blue Ridge Beauty: The beauty of this stunning scrap quilt from Bonnie Hunter is that everything works. When searching through your stash for fabrics, don’t rule out any that don’t “match.” Looking at Bonnie’s quilt, you’ll see a whole spectrum of values and prints. The finished size of Blue Ridge Beauty is 96″ x 108″. We’ve also included Bonnie’s popular “Leaders & Enders” article in this issue so you can learn Bonnie’s genius method for using your stash to make a bonus quilt while sewing blocks for a different quilt.
Perennial Petals: The overall look of this quilt designed by Caroline Reardon is scrappy, but each block has controlled elements. The finished size of the quilt is 65″ x 84 1/2″.
Mezzanine: A beautiful secondary design emerges from the angles in a single block on this gorgeous quilt designed by Monique Dillard. The quilt finishes at 75″ x 92″.
Retro Romance: Choose colorful fabrics that make a bold statement to create this fun and romantic throw quilt designed by Jocelyn Ueng. The design finishes at 56″ x 72″.
