I think a Blog post is kind of over due, so here we go!
I think we all purchased the great ‘Make It Mini’ magazine this spring by Better Homes and Gardens. Was on the newsstands, available in Barnes & Noble and in many Quilt Shops, hope you have your copy! There are so many great small projects to enjoy in your home or to make for gifts for special friends. I actually have 3 of my quilts from prior American Patchwork & Quilting Magazines in this issue, am sharing what I did with one of them.
This picture is of the original quilt I made and submitted for publication, a while back. You remember it don’t you!
Laura Boehnke, who works for the magazine, creates many of the projects ‘in other colors’ for inspiration, she came up with this mini version for us to enjoy.
Laura made hers in Blues . . . so very pretty!
Don’t you love it!
Well, I have a new fabric line coming out in August with Moda Fabrics, pretty pumped about it, so for Quilt Market I remade the smaller version in red using the reds from my new fabric line named ‘Gratitude’.
Now you really ‘need’ to make it come August, hope you already have the magazine!
