The February 2012 Issue of Quilters World is on the News Stands and there are 2 of my patterns in this month's issue!!You have seen these before on my blog but it is always so fun to see them in print. The first was made by my super good friend Peggy Hartnett of Powell, OH -- who despite quite a lot of "complaining" about the difficulty of this pattern, put it together beautifully!!
Brenda Weien's fabulous quilting is featured on this quilt as well. And I gotta tell you, it is really pretty. I wish I could keep it, but its going back to Peggy who did the real work on this one. The design was adapted from an old quilt I saw on ebay. McCalls Quilting was interested in a full size version of this runner, but eventually ruled it out as being too difficult for their readers. Well, I never!! I think McCalls readers can paper piece with the best of them!! The tough part of this quilt is getting the right color on the right piece. But then. . . there are only 2 colors so you pretty much can't go wrong. . . well, ok, you can, but not if you are careful.
See Peggy, they even printed your NAME!!!!
The other quilt in this issue is a simple Irish Chain runner that I designed just for the fun of it. The fabric line is Farmhouse Retreat by Andover Fabrics, and it worked up very easily.
One last item for this post. I just have to show you these wonderful table runners made by Betty King, who won a great set of fat quarters as part of the 2011 Jewels BOM monthly give-away. Look at these three incredible table runners Betty made from her winning FQ's.
Didn't she do a fabulous job?? Thanks so much Betty. You totally rock.
