I’m excited to share that a new pattern of mine is included in the latest issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine, Issue 44. Not only is the pattern included in the magazine, but it also made the cover!
While this is not the first time one of my patterns has been on the cover of a magazine (this was the fun first), it is the first time it’s on the cover of a printed magazine that my friends and family (and me, I suppose!) will be able to see on the newsstands in Joann Fabric and Barnes and Noble and the like. The issue came out Feb 1st in the UK, and will be showing up in stores in the US in 3-5 weeks. Please do let me know when you see it! If you’re techy, you could also get this issue instantly to your phone or tablet with the digital issues on Apple Newsstand, Zinio or Google Play.
This issue includes so many great patterns and inspiration, and even includes quilting stencils designed by Christa Watson. Visit the Love Patchwork and Quilting site to read and see more about what’s included in this fab issue.
Inspired by a tile pattern I saw a couple of years ago, this quilt is a great one to use for color play (or colour play!). It looks great in any colorway, and the fun accent block helps feature your focal or accent fabric.
I love the styling done by Love Patchwork & Quilting for the photos! I made this quilt using Kona cottons from Robert Kaufman and pieced and quilted it with Aurifil thread. I used 40wt thread in coordinating colors for quilting to make it a bit more substantial and echoed the geometric angles of the quilt, and I really like the aesthetic of the straight lines and the ease of quilting with my walking foot. This is a fun pattern and I do hope you’ll check it out!
Also, in the same color theme, I’m having a pattern sale through February 14th with all of my heart-themed patterns 20% off.

I made a BIG Love Struck block to help spread the world, and I think it eventually will become a festive pillow. Each heart-tipped arrow finishes at 6″ x 18″ and was a really quick sew, so if you’re looking for a fast and fun Valentine’s project, the BIG Love Struck pattern might be the perfect one! (or Hello, Love… or Love Struck… or Love is the Key… or…<3)
It’s a snow day here, so back to the kiddos–enjoy your day!

Kitty – That pattern is stunning. So is the arrow pattern. The first one is a real classic. Well done. Can’t wait to get this issue. Stay safe in the snow.
NY is going to get it’s first nor’easter of the season. Glad we are in Florida and will miss it.
Congrats on the cover! That is a beautiful quilt. The pink and grey is lovely.
Thank you, Jen! The funny thing is, when I first submitted this pattern, it was done up in the Kona COTY last year–highlight with wasabi, etc…. but because it fit best in the Feb 2017 issue of LPQ, RK suggested it be done in a different colorway since the Highlight would no longer be available. So I selected this colorway, which is really darn close to this year’s Kona COTY Pink Flamingo!! Pretty cool!
Your quilt is beautifully styled and looks amazing on the cover – congratulations!! ❤
Congratulations! It’s a great pattern. Snow day here as well…but then we got freezing rain and rain on top of it. And then another 20 to 30 centimetres are coming tomorrow.
Eek! So exciting! Love the hot pink with the grey! Really makes it shine.
This one could really be in any color combo, I love the versatility! I don’t normally buy quilting magazines, but I may snag this one if i spot it at Jo Ann’s since this pattern is calling me! Lol 😊
Fun pattern, great colors!
Congratulations on the cover, Kitty! The pattern is beautiful and really would look great in any colours 🙂
Thanks for the share. Nice contrast with the gray.
