Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine

A couple of weeks ago I told you about a new quilt design I have featured in the new issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine. At that time, I didn’t have a copy of the issue yet. I received my copy and it is especially nice, so I thought I would share some projects here for inspiration. Warning: these images might make you want to get sewing!

As you can see from the cover, this issue is all about color! The main one there on the cover is a scrappy design that would be fun to make in coordinated colors like the original, or throw together a whole bunch of scraps…a total stash buster!

This is my favorite quilt in the magazine (other than mine, of course). I know I don’t usually make such minimalist designs, but I am really attracted to the simplicity of this…the solid colors, the basic block. I always like hexagons and I think this is a really creative take on that shape.

I really like the way this quilt is designed without obvious blocks… more like a row by row quilt but made vertically. There are so many possibilities here. It would be amazing in black and white and maybe just one color. I am also inspired by the idea of using ombre color with this: start in the center block with deep color and radiate out to the top and bottom getting lighter and lighter.

And, my quilt. As you can see it’s not at all minimal or basic. But that’s me. I think my favorite thing about this quilt is the fabric…it was all prints I had in my stash waiting for the perfect quilt. I think it is so much fun to mix a bunch of prints. Not a solid to be found!

As you all know, I love curved piecing. I hope if you don’t already love it, too, you will give it a try!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend (I’m thrilled to say that spring might have arrived here at last)
