ICYMI, check out this link to Pat Sloan’s interview with Sarah Maxwell. Pat is the host of American Patchwork & Quiltingmagazine’s podcast. (As you can see, we all listened intently this morning, and that was before my first cup of tea!)
During the interview, Sarah discussed her hew venture, Designs by Sarah J, her upcoming book with C&T called Stashbusters (it’s co-authored with Dolores Smith). She also talked about how her focus in quilting evolved from traditional to more contemporary, and how she uses her two twenty-something daughters to test out her modern designs ; ) Reinvention…How many of you can relate?? Enjoy the show!
Whichever one you choose, you will LOVE the fact that these BOM programs are created with 36 different 10″ x 10″ PRE-CUTS! And Sarah Maxwell’s detailed design is equally dramatic in neutral tones (RIVER ROCK batiks) or bold brights (RADIANT REFLECTIONS batiks). We thought that this particular photo by Sue Loring of The Quilted Crow in Bolton, MA was particularly striking – thanks, Sue! These were recently featured at the shop for the grand opening of its new location.
Look for these block-of-the-month programs at your local quilt shops beginning January, and you can have your own completed masterpeice in just 9 months!
This design combines bright color and easy piecing for a dramatic look – just right to brighten up the approaching days of winter! For the December 2014 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, quilt tester Laura Boehnke used the Primo Batiks: AURORA & TWILIGHT collection by Marcus Fabrics to make her version of Homestead Hearth’s So Many Squares quilt. Even better, their pattern is FREE online! Enjoy!
