A New Pattern, A New Day

First, let me thank everyone for their support after the death of my brother Larry in May. Losing four brothers in five years absolutely gutted me. Their deaths have made me very reflective of what is important in life, and one of the things I re-discovered is that designing, making, teaching, and talking about quilts and quilt designs IS very important to me. On to my big news!

Let me introduce Go For a Spin, one of my latest designs now appearing in the February 2019 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. It's due to hit newsstands December 4, but I received an email today from a fellow guild member that they already received their copy in the mail!

How fun are these? I just got the quilt back and was reminded all over again how much I love it. 

I loved this pattern so much that I made a smaller, alternate version in bright Christmas colors. It looks even better now that it's quilted. The magazine shows an alternate colorway as well. You'll have to get a copy to see how it looks in purples and blues.  :)
