I’m very happy to report that I have TWO quilts in the upcoming issue of Quilter’s Newsletter’s Best Scrap Quilts 2014 which will be on the newsstands soon! The first quilt, Four by Nine, is the result of a Four-Patch exchange with staff when I was working as an editor for QN. I set the little blocks together to create a diagonal pattern across the quilt. Each little square in the blocks is one inch. This is a “pick-up” from a previous issue.
The second quilt was made specially for this issue. I call it Rainbow Stars and it is 92″x92″, big enough to use on the bed. The criteria set by QN was that no more than a fat eighth would be used of any one fabric. Needless to say, it took dozens of fabrics – a great stash buster! The star blocks are easy to make and I was very pleased with the result. It is the placement of value within each block that really “makes” the stars.
