Regarding Ms. B on the right: yes, that lone, wobbly tooth in the front has since fallen out!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had not one but TWO quilt patterns featured in issue 8 of Fat Quarterly. I wanted to show them both today in their entirety, as well as some outtakes that the kids and I had during our photo shoot!
(Quick note of clarification: issue 8 of Fat Quarterly has a paper-piecing theme, but both of my quilt patterns are traditionally pieced (i.e. easy)! Though there are several great paper-piecing projects in the issue, we wanted to be sure we still offered a variety of project types for all sewists.)
First up is my Kingdom Courtyards quilt. I made this quilt to showcase Jessica Levitt's Kingdom line, and it was on display in the Windham booth at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City last year. I love this quilt pattern -- mostly for its versatility and its ability to showcase large prints -- and finally had the chance to write it up to share with Fat Quarterly readers.
Kingdom Courtyards was masterfully quilted by the uber-talented Angela Walters (who happens to have her own book coming out soon!)
My second quilt is called Double Happiness, and I made this quilt with Kate Spain's newest line, Good Fortune. The ever-talented Jackie Kunkel of Canton Village Quilt Works did an amazing job with the quilting. I LOVE Jackie's work -- she always seems to take what I send her to another level with her quilting choices. Thanks, Jackie!
The kids and I had a great time staging an impromptu photo shoot to get some good pictures of the quilt at a local nature center on a grey Sunday afternoon!
They're crazy ... but I love these guys!!
