My Quilt in Quiltmaker Magazine

I'm so happy to share this quilt with you. It is in the current September/October 2015 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine.

The quilt is named "Which way to go?" However, as I was making it and using that fabulous Tiffany blue background, I thought it should be named "Which way to Tiffany's?". If you don't subscribe to Quiltmaker Magazine, you can download the pattern here.

I even quilted this one myself (that is, with the help of the HQ studio educators and computerized quilting). I used an HQ Infinity machine equipped with HQ Pro-Stitcher. I selected a fabulous edge-to-edge digital motif by Wasatch Quilting.  I think the quilting motif works so well with the quilt. The motif is called Modern E2E 1025.

Here are some additional pictures of the quilt that better feature the quilting:

Quiltmaker magazine also featured a miniature version of the quilt, called "Spook-tacular". The blocks are half of the size of the "Which way to go?" quilt. As you can see, they used Halloween fabrics, and it turned out so cute.

And here's my original design. I've sewn the top, but I guess I've never taken a photo of the top since all I can find is my Electric Quilt design. I used the Zen Chic fabric line named Comma.

So, as you can see, the quilt design lends itself to all types of fabrics. And it's a great beginner quilt.
