I have published a few patterns in the past. Most of them in Stitch, from Interweave. But I just got published in a quilt magazine. It makes me quite happy since I’m loving quilt making more and more. I particularly enjoy designing them. This time I designed a playmat quilt that just has been published in Modern Quilts Unlimited. In the third issue of this new modern quilting magazine, Spring 2013.
I just got my copy of it and I really enjoyed reading an article by Jacquie Guering from Tallgrass Prairie Studio and article on Victoria Findlay Wolfe. It’s great to have a pattern featured in the same magazine. Both are inspiring quilt makers!
About the design of my quilt, the idea was to make it look like tumble blocks babies play with. Blocks with different colors on each of their faces. The quilt consists of 3 diamonds that are joined to represent a cube in 3D. Each diamonds are assembled in a courthouse step fashion alternating between solid color fabric and a coordinating print. I wanted to accentuate the three-dimensionality this way.
I made a label from leftovers strips from the front.
