Magazine Winners

1 09 2016

On August 11 I issued a challenge to find design inspiration for quilting from a glass and ceramic tile mosaic which decorates the outside wall of Hoss’s restaurant in York, PA. Click here to read the blog post and ensuing comments. The ideas were amazing!


I especially liked Ronda’s correlation of a meteor shower with a section of the mosaic. Making a quilt to capture the memory of the astrological phenomenon is a great idea!

Maridee explained about the scrappy squares she’d use to “copy” a section of the mosaic. I also could SO make a quilt like that.

Pamela shared a couple of ideas; the sophisticated suggestion of rotating a block would make a wonky circular design, I think.

I’ll email these Quiltmakers 100 Blocks magazine winners asking for their USPS addresses. Special thanks to all who participated in the contest!

QN20816I’ve drawn a winner for Quilters Newsletter’s Best Christmas Quilts:  Suzan deSerres. Congrats, Suzan!

If your favorite quilt shop or newsstand does not carry this special magazine, you can order a print or digital copy from the online Quilt and Sew Shop. I kid you not, the magazine is packed with beautiful quilts. Order now and you’ll have time to make a couple for holiday gifts or decorating.
