New issue of APQ~American Patchwork & Quilting!
Let's Trick or Treat together and take a look.....
Oooohhhh....Cottage Garden! This is a table runner by Kim Diehl. Also known as Kimmie Poo Diehl. I basically taught her everything she knows about quilting. Yeah, I'm pretty much the wind beneath her wings, if you must know.
Okay, raise your hand if you'll be getting on THIS bandwagon with me!!! Flying Solo....A triangle is the only shape needed to re-create the center of this vintage quilt. Points of the equilateral triangles will match up perfectly, making stitching a breeze.
Aaaahhhh.....Reach For the Stars.....Take on an intriguing challenge with this stunning Lone Star design. You will have triple the fun making various sizes of different stars to create a spectacular king-size-bed quilt.
Gotta have it! It is Halloween time after all. Well, in October. Let's enjoy the rest of summer, but we quilters are always a season ahead! Tricks & Treats
This quilt 'rounds' things out nicely....Roundabout....by Heather Mulder Peterson -- Anka's Treasures (there's also a big article about her). Create the illusion of circles using only straight seams. In an updated version of the classic Pineapple block, rounds of strips are added in a variety of widths. Contrast in the color and scale of fabrics used creates a distinctive pattern.
And more.......a favorite feature of APQ is their color options with every quilt. I'll say it again. No, I'll sing it from the rooftops....This is my favorite quilt magazine EVER. Even if I never sewed again, these are beautiful to look at and enjoy. The October issue is in the store now. We ship internationally, as well! If this magazine doesn't have ENOUGH projects for you, with this issue also comes an added insert of Alex Anderson's Piece and Applique the Easy Way.
