Fresh Cut



(All photos used with permission from Better Homes and Gardens American Patchwork and Quilting.  Copyright, June 2012 Meredith Corporation.  All rights reserved)

Katie and I are pretty excited that the June issue of American Patchwork and Quilting has an excerpt from our book, Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts and a bonus project baby quilt we call Fresh Cut! (It's not in the book...it's an extra.)

Fresh Cut utilizes the Slice and Insert technique from the chapter titled Slice and Dice.  It is a simple and versatile technique.


We were so thrilled with the photo styling. The quilt looks fabulous and certainly fresh.  The issue is jam packed with other fresh quilts AND an article featuring the timeless improvisational quilts of Gee's Bend.

Thanks American Patchwork and Quilting!  Hope you pick up a copy!

I received my issue on Friday and I was very excited to see this project in the magazine. It really does look like a "must do" for me.

Congrats!

I can't wait to get my copy for so many reasons. I've heard a lot about the great articles. An excerpt from your book doesn't hurt. And I quilted the quilt on the cover!

I got my magazine in the mail Saturday and when I saw your blog title, I ran and told my husband, "I KNOW HER!!" "Awesome, you know her?" "well, I read her blog. But I really like it!" Ha.

Congratulations. The quilt it so fun!

Very cool quilt and quilting! It's funny how a photo of a photo looks so 2-d.

I received my copy and loved the article. So inspiring and very cool! Been loving all the articles about your book and can't wait until our local quilt shop has a copy! Continued good wishes - from another Canuck.

OMG!!!!! Love it sooooo much. Gotta have one. The order of random colors last years during this great sale at the online fabric shop will be perfect for this!

As a charter AP&Q subscriber, I am thrilled to see your quilt in the issue. I fell in love with it the moment I received the issue in the mail last week. Hope to make it soon.

I have to admit i have neglected my blog and reading others for almost a year now...i makes me sad when i think it about...but i have been sewing, since i started my new job at a local quilt shop.

I just got this magazine last week in the mail and when i saw this quilt i totally thought you...now i will have to go through it and read it more carefully...cuz to honest, again, i just flipped through it, since i was in a hurry to get out the door for work.

But when i saw the quilt i was thinking that i must make this quilt and was thinking what fabrics in my stash would look great for it.

AWESOME JOB!!
