Yep, free fabric. We’re promoting our newest special issue, Best Weekend Quilts 2013, and we’re having an entire week of giveaways to celebrate.
Best Weekend Quilts 2013 is filled with 30 projects designed with speed and ease in mind, without compromising style and functionality. Pick up a copy of this issue from your local quilt shop, bookstore, newsstand or online at the Quilt and Sew Shop.
Each day I’ll be featuring patterns from the magazine so you can get inspired to start working on your own weekend quilt.
Using her classic, bright, scrappy style, Tina Curran created a vibrant wall hanging that’s sure to please. The large, vibrant double sawtooth star blocks contrasted against the black-and-white prints creates a dramatic look. Use your contrasting prints in your favorite palette for a similar effect that’s more your style.
Using charm squares from Moda’s Home on the Ranch collection, Carol Streif designed this throw with a slight variation on the snowballed block corners to reduce seams that need to match up. Use your child’s favorite juvenile prints and get started this weekend!
Janet Jo Smith’s hand-dyed fabrics create a soft, feminine appeal in this large throw. With such vibrancy, it’s easy to see how this quilt landed the cover of Best Weekend. In the issue, you’ll also find the pattern for Rosie Glow’s sister quilt, Peachy Keen. Just a few changes in color placement will give you a whole new look.
When Ramona Sorensen was designing this quilt she was fascinated by the many design possibilities that triangles and diamonds offer. Lay your triangles out on a large flat surface or design wall and play around with the different shapes that can emerge for a completely unique creation.
The prize for the lucky winner today is a bundle of the New Traditions collection from P&B Textiles and a copy of Best Weekend Quilts 2013. Inspired by vintage swatches in loosely authentic colors, this collection is both traditional and new and would be a happy addition to any quilter’s stash.
To win this bundle and magazine, leave a comment on this post by midnight mountain time tonight – Tuesday, May 21. One comment per person please. Open to those who haven’t won anything from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days.
