It’s the July/August issue of Quiltmaker Magazine!This means that Part THREE of the Lazy Sunday mystery is nearly at your door step…and things are starting to come together!
I really had a great time working with these colors….yes, some of the colors were from the left overs of my Easy Street, but that wasn’t all that I threw in there. I was inspired by fabrics and colors that had come home from Bali with me just last August ---bright beautiful color, and I loved how happy these fresh colors made me feel.
Orange and hot pink and lime green and turquoise….and let’s throw in some purple for good measure! These are all colors that strike a chord in my memory of our batiking expedition.
If you have not kept up with the mystery so far..it’s not too late! Previous issues are still available..you CAN catch up because it will be 2 months before the last installment comes out. You can even get your copies digitally HERE.
Where is this going and why does one star have a green corner?!
Wait and see!
Also included in this issue: My Addicted to Scraps column!
Perfect for summer! This is Berry Bushel!
And look what the Quiltmaker Team has done for a simple sample layout:
This is just what I envisioned...isn't it fun how the blocks come together to create a positive/negative design? This one would look great with cornerstones and sashings too because the cornerstones would connect the chains through the blocks.
That’s not all you will find in this issue! Quiltmaker is PACKED with gorgeous quilts, and directions are provided to help you create these from start to finish, including color options and quilting designs.
