Yes, it’s true, one of my quilts (that I made over a year ago!) has been published in American Patchwork & Quilting’s 2015 Calendar. And here she is, Miss January 🙂
I really love this quilt. It’s the first time I have used any Liberty of London fabrics (all of the blues) and my first medallion quilt design. My local quilt guild member and friend, Lynette Reynolds, quilted it for me. Just take a look at the amazing work she did.
The quilting on the blue fabrics is a little more difficult to see, but the center star is amazing!
And just look at all of those perfect little pebbles 🙂
Here it is now hanging in our bathroom above the garden tub. Doesn’t it look like it was made for this space (and the blues coordinate so well!) I still need to add an extra hanging sleeve in the middle so that the hanging rod won’t show. (Note to self, if your quilt is 48″ or larger, do a sleeve…not just corner hangers!)
I’ve been joking at our house that since my quilt is January I can just rip off all of the other months and stare at it all year long! Of course then I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the 11 other beautiful creations in the calendar, so I guess I won’t 🙂
Check out the calendar cover, isn’t it so cute? I love how they staged this shot, very patriotic!
To celebrate my very first in print publication, I’ve decided to give away a calendar (complete with instructions on how to make each of the 12 projects in the calendar) to one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment below.
Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck!
