You're in for a treat with the July/August issue of Quiltmaker. Subscriber copies begin shipping this week and it will appear at quilt shops and newsstands by June 7. I think you'll like this one. Here are select highlights:
Spinout, designed by Barbara Cline, shown in Art Gallery Fabrics
• For those who enjoy foundation paper piecing, Spinout will have you swirling. The featured quilt is wonderfully contemporary, and the QM Scrap Squad will add its versions, too. They've done another fabulous job of showing how you can make this quilt using your scrap fabrics! The Scrap Squad's quilts will be unveiled right here on Quilty Pleasures in June.
Minnie's Hummingbird, vintage quilt by Minnie Jacoby Schultz
• Our Classic/Update theme continues with Minnie's Hummingbird. The Classic version is set with a cheerful yellow solid. The Update is so different, you'll hardly recognize it.
Tumbling Monkeys by Heidi Pridemore in fabrics from Robert Kaufman
• Looking for a cheerful, easy kid's quilt? Look no further than Tumbling Monkeys from Heidi Pridemore, always a favorite QM designer. This design is great for a boy or a girl—just change up the colors however you like.
More highlights in the days to come: a fun contest with quilts as prizes, Part 2 of our Secret Window mystery series and another adorable Patch Pal. Stay tuned!
