I am late in posting this. In the last 2 1/2 weeks I have divided my time between 3 states. I went to O'Fallon Illinois where I did a trunk show and wool on cotton workshop. Back home to Missouri and then I headed north to Waterloo Iowa. I did a trunk show and two workshops in Iowa for the Cabin Fever Retreat hosted by the Grout Museum. I send many thanks to all who attended my trunk shows and workshops in both venues. It is so fantastic to meet new quilters and share our passion. I received a super warm welcome in both places. Thanks to you all!
This is my quilt Somerset. Remember I said that I would have a big project in Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine? Well this is it.
Sorry for the poor photos. I don't have the quilt and did not photograph it before it shipped off so I had to do some magic scanning.
Anyway, it is a medallion quilt that will be presented in a 4- part series. One section in each of the four 2013 issues. This first part gives you directions for the center applique and the hourglass borders. It is a fairly easy quilt to create. Simple pieced blocks and of course folk art applique. Breaking it down in 4 sections makes it easy to fit into your schedule as well. The magazine comes out every three months so you have three months to complete each section and will have a complete top at the end of the year. I hope you like it and stitch along. If you do, make sure to send photos of your work! I would love to see your version.
