Some New Designs on the Newstand

The June/July issue of Quilt Magazine is starting to show up on news stands, and I have two designs in this one that I can finally show!  This happy one is called Pajama Party and is designed with the beginner quilter in mind.  It's a bright and fun pinwheel design that is perfect for a young girl, and with a little help from a loving grown up, it can be the first quilt she ever makes :)  It's made from the 'Lil Miss Cutie Patootie Springtime fabric collection from Red Rooster.

The instructions for the coordinating pillows can be found as a free download on the Quilt Magazine website, and I'm offering kits that include the panel on my website

And as an extra bonus, I'm also offering a Free Pattern of the Panel Pajama Bag on my website.  It's a cute little quilted bag that can hang on a door knob or bed post to hold pajamas or small toys ~ and if you don't need it for your pjs anymore like me, you can use it in the mudroom to hold paper grocery bags :)  Click here for the current free-for-the-taking pdf downloads on my website.  

Design number two is called American Beauty, and is very appropriate for a summer issue!  Both of the quilts were long arm quilted by my friend Mary of Keep Me In Quilts, she always does such nice work!  This is a nice summer project, and the cutting for this quilt is also very Accuquilt cutter friendly for those of you who are looking for that :)

American Beauty is currently on the bed in my guest room.  I love the colors in this one with their reproduction feel ~ the fabrics are from the Heritage Prints collection from Benartex fabrics.

If you like the fabrics, I have most of them from both of these quilts available, while supplies last, on the bolt here in my store for pillow cases and backings, just click on the appropriate fabric company name.  And better yet, I have kits available for everything pictured above! 

Enjoy the day!
