Although we had no rain over the weekend and the sun played peek-a-boo with the clouds, it was still a little too cool to work outdoors in the garden so I stayed indoors and did a little Spring cleaning, read and stitched.
Have you seen the June 2009 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting? It’s my most favorite quilting magazine and I look forward to each new issue because there’s always something in it that I tag and add to my ‘to do’ list. This month there are two projects that I’d love to make, the first being a scrappy quilt called Pick & Choose and the second one called Mix It Up using 1930’s prints using the classic Jacob’s Ladder and 16 patch blocks.
The featured designer in this issue is Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. The article has some tantalizing photos of Anne’s ‘to die for’ studio and sheds some insight into her daily life as a designer.
Coincidently, one of the projects that I completed this weekend was the appliquéd version of the 4th block in Anne’s Tisket-A-Tasket BOM series.
Also included in the magazine is one of Anne’s designs called Sweet Tweet. It would make a perfect baby quilt, done in pastel Pinwheel blocks and embellished with rickrack, buttons and two sweet appliquéd birds. Edit: That makes three tagged projects in this issue alone.
I hope that you all had a safe and Happy Easter.
