Latest Quiltmaker Issue...

The July/August issue of Quiltmaker is hitting new stands!

My "Addicted To Scraps" Column features the block "Twin Sisters" and I know you will want to play with this one! it uses BRICKS! And you end up with two different blocks for your efforts.

Bobbi just sent an email saying:
I'm really enjoying your series of scrap blocks in the Quiltmaker Mag. I know you are heading out today but would love to see the block (twin sisters?) from the latest issue in a layout like you had posted previously.

Gosh you are such an inspiration to all of us!


So I went and typed "Twin Sister" into the search box at the top of my blog and it brought up the whole post!! And yes, to my chagrin, tho I have made more blocks, it's still not a finished top yet! *LOL* You can find the way I was setting them
...along with pics of an antique quilt that inspired me to try this block pattern.

What's so fun for me is to send Quiltmaker the block, and see how THEY want to set them! Look at this diagram here! It looks so different set on point!


  1. I think your original colourway and layout is MUCH nicer than the Quiltmaker one, but I guess each to his/her own :)

  2. I can't wait to play with this block!
    Thanks Bonnie! Hopefully I can show you a finished quilt from this pattern (and some of the others that I've done or are planning to do) when you come to my guild in APril 2011!

  3. I wonder if my issue is in my mailbox?? Thanks Bonnie-cakes!

  4. That looks like fun. I love how one block create such different looks!

  5. Got the magazine. Love the pattern.

  6. Congrats on another great design, and congrats for being featured on the Quilt Inspiration blog post. Their current article is all about used recycled clothing in quilts and there are some fabulous pictures...including yours!


  7. Looks like I am going to have to subscribe to this magazine since it is difficult to find around Augusta! or maybe all your fans beat me to the newsstand...hummm
