Beluga {a finished quilt and publication!}

I’m super excited to introduce my latest quilt design, Beluga. Β I’ve had this sketched up for quite a while and was thrilled when Love Patchwork & Quilting was interested in publishing it in their magazine.

I think the design looks like beads (with the “holes” in the center) and that is where I came up with the name. πŸ™‚

Both of the fabrics in this quilt are from Art Gallery’s Denim Studio collection. Β It is so soft and a wonderful light chambray weight. Β The Nectarine Sunrise color makes my heart sing! Β The “black” is called Wicked Sky and is a perfect background to make the nectarine pop.

I sent this one off to be quilted by Teresa of Quilting is My Bliss. Β I was giddy when she sent me the photo after it was finished. Isn’t the quilting gorgeous?!? Β Her talent amazes me.

And here is a photo from Love Patchwork & Quliting. Β Again, I love how they style the quilts in their publication.

You can find the pattern instructions in their Issue 50 (on UK newsstands now and in US in approximately 4-6 weeks).

And as a special bonus for their 50th issue, you will get a free block book with 32 new block designs for you to try.

I’ll be making my favorite block from the book and sharing it this weekend. Β You can follow the hashtag #lpq32blocksSAL to see what others are creating and sew along!

  1. The pattern reminds me of the Inca Cross – something I may incorporate into the border of a “Lloyd & Lola” llama quilt. Thanks so much for the gorgeous inspiration!
