Yup…that’s me, getting up on the wrong side of the bed!! Let me explain…
I received my Primitive Quilts and Projects Magazine a couple of weeks ago. Love this magazine…it’s the ONLY one that I subscribe to so I look forward to receiving it…waiting at the mailbox for days at a time!! The Summer 2014 issue certainly didn’t disappoint…SEW worth the wait!! I keep the current issue out and handy and go through it whenever I get a minute.
And love the subtle qualities of this beauty…doesn’t it look like it’s been faded and loved by time!
Even ‘Plays With Wool Designs’ came up with a winner…and this time they included a 3” drawing of the vine! Yay…it’s better than NOTHING…(which is what I got in the last pattern of theirs that I bought!! If you remember I wasn’t so kind with the review of their ‘Bittersweet Mat’…you can read about it HERE!)
And isn’t this one sweet…designed by Catherine Hughes…an old time favourite using the shoofly block.
I also liked this Scrappy Quilt…with the scalloped border!! It wasn’t until I was reading the Contents Page that I saw that Laural Arestad designed this quilt…so I flipped back! WHAT? The quilt is called ‘Words to Live By’ but WHERE are the words?
There is no close up picture of the words…In the picture it looks like big stitch quilting around the nine patches…(Laural you were robbed with this…there should have been a CLOSE-UP of your hand stitching!!) In fact you have to go to the fold out sheet to actual SEE the words that Laural stitched onto this quilt! As far as I’m concerned it’s these stitched words that knock this quilt out of the ball park!! Wowzers!! I love this idea!! Well done, Laural!!
See…I told you I got up on the wrong side of the bed!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P
