Cover quilt at Love Patchwork and Quilting

This summer I had a SUPER fun invitation: to create a quilt for one of my favorite magazines, Love Patchwork & Quilting. And then, I ended up on the cover of the most recent issue (Issue 12)! (AAaaahhHH!) This is my first time ever as a cover girl and I must say, it is pretty fun!
I’m not a super-squealy/giggly person, but I have to admit, I do get a little squealy and giggly every time I look at my copy. (They made it look so pretty!)
LPQ requested an updated version of my Chain Linked quilt. It was a lot of fun to recreate it in a fresh new palette using navy blue (which I love) and mixing in teals, yellows, and greens. So fresh and fun. I redesigned the pattern to make it even more streamlined and quick and it comes together (fabulously) fast. The new-and-improved pattern is only found in Issue 12 for the time being.
I used a lot of Art Gallery Fabric Chromatics, Essentials, and Carnaby Street as well as some new Cotton + Steel basics and mixed in a few prints from my stash.
I have to give a HUGE shout out to Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting for her amazing job custom quilting this project. I was making the quilt on a quick deadline before our trip this summer and gave Melissa free-reign to do what she wanted. Her work is amazing!

Issue 12 came out in Aug in the UK. Usually in the US we get it about a month later and it should be available from JoAnn’s or Barnes and Noble soon, if not now. (Will someone let me know if/when they see it available?) You can also find past issues on Amazon.

    Congrats on being a cover girl. I love the quilt. The quilt keeps my eyes moving. I can hardly wait for magazine to hit the news stands here. Hearing you refer to your trip certainly keeps me reliving my trip which ended at the Festival of Quilts, all in August.

    Love this! FYI – I&#39;ve had my issue for awhile – I get it on my ipad. Less costly, get it faster, easier to store.
