“Around the Bend” Remix

11 12 2015

Last May my original patchwork block, “Around the Bend,” was published in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers, vol. 11.

Around the Bend block

IMG_20151209_160118_284-1Both Lauri and Karlene noticed that the block was also recently published in the Jan./Feb. 2016 issue of Quiltmaker. How exciting! I purchased my copy at JoAnn’s Fabric and Craft Store. (If you frequent the Fayetteville store, look for the magazines on an end cap near the garment pattern cabinets.)

Here is what Associate Editor Erin Russek wrote:  “The staff challenge is a favorite time of year at Quiltmaker. One block design from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks is chosen, and several staff members work with a different fabric company to design a creative new quilt….Each of us took a different approach as we changed values, recolored and rotated blocks to create interesting designs. Notice that each of the designs has different fabric placements in the blocks.”

Which is your favorite design, #1, #2, or #3?

Too cool! Makes me want to quilt but the house is no where near ready to quilt! Moving is not for the faint of heart!

I like #1. It is fun to see so many ways to use your block.
