The September/October 2014 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine is IN THE HOUSE!
Holy COW! No wonder I can’t catch up no matter how I try!
It reminds me of working in the flower shop in Ontario Oregon between 1985-1989. I learned that we are really ALWAYS behind, because the displays were all about the next holiday down the road. Still drives me nuts and makes me feel a bit panicky.
I want to enjoy the WHOLE summer, not be focusing on October already, but if you can’t beat them, join them!
You are going to LOVE this issue….see those cute houses on the front?
The full pattern by Lori Holt is included:
Parkview Lane! CUTE!
And the gals at Quiltmaker issued several of us a challenge…to make our OWN rendition of Lori’s houses….take a sneak peak!
Parade of homes! Which one is MINE!?
You’ll find me at #4 Parkview Lane!
Would you have guessed me? By the string pieced roof?
This was a very fun project to do…I can see myself making MORE houses for a future project. You’ll find the pattern and can make your own variations by picking up this issue of Quiltmaker Magazine.
Also included in the magazine…My Addicted to Scraps column!
((Usually I am getting my issue just as it is going up on the Quiltmaker Website, but I’m early this month so I’m having to take photos from the magazine, no cute graphics to share…))
Addicted to Scraps block..FIRE-WEED!
((Bad glare on the photo!))
The fire-weed flower blooms across the rugged Alaskan landscape, softening the terrain’s hard-cut edges and bringing vibrant color to the countryside.
It’s almost August as I write this..if I remember correctly, that fire-weed should STILL be in bloom right about now. So pretty!
I used leftover nine patches made as leaders & enders from recycled fabrics. All of the red and cream triangles and the purple and cream triangles are buns units saved from other projects.
You’ll find the directions for the fire-weed block in the Addicted to Scraps column of the Sept/Oct issue of Quiltmaker Magazine!
So let’s have a Give-Away!
I am giving away a Sept/Oct issue along with a July/August issue showing my Wanderlust quilt on the cover!
