APQ clearly loves Picking Violets; they chose Nancy Rink’s MILLWORKS collection for the August 2015 issue of American Patchwork and Quiltingmagazine. Nancy designed the quilt as well as the fabrics, so who better to showcase its beauty with her signature combination of applique and piecing! You’ll love the plum / sage / burgundy palette all year ’round…
So are we! And we couldn’t wait any longer to share this sneak peek of Nancy Rink’s latest, AMISH WITH A TWIST III, a beautiful new interpretation of her signature BOM, created with eleven colors, including NEW Marcus CENTENNIAL SOLIDS!
We think the designs speak for themselves, with pieced and appliqued options for the center medallion design, and rich Blue Coal background that allows the colors to pop. The applique version can be stitched using traditional applique or optional pre-cut laser pieces. The full pieced version and a smaller detail pic of the appliqued version are shown.
Complete this beauty in just 10 months, beginning September 2015!
