This is a quilt I've been so excited to share. I made the quilt this past fall, but I can finally show it off. It's called Square Knots.Spring 2013 issue of Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts magazine! This is my first quilt in a real magazine and it makes me a little giddy seeing it there. This issue has lots of great projects including beautiful quilts by Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced and Pat Sloan.
This quilt was made using the Set Sail collection by Birch Fabrics with a blue Essex cotton/linen blend as the background. I love how the linen gives the quilt some texture and the color is perfect for setting off those nautical prints. The quilting was done by my friend, Monica Steelman. The finished quilt is 42" x 54".
My favorite of the prints in Set Sail is the cheater squares print on the back. I'm also partial to the Sea Urchins. And right now, the whole Set Sail collection is on sale at Fabricworm. Looking at this makes me in the mood for summer.Kits for this quilt are available from Fabric Worm.
