As many of you may know by now, the editors of Quilting Arts are thrilled to introduce the newest magazine to join our family: 101 Patchwork Projects. This super-sized issue is going to be packed with quick, easy, and contemporary patchwork projects, from bed quilts to bookmarks. And you have just one more week to submit your projects! So if you haven't yet, now's the time to check out our submission guidelines and get stitching. I know what you're thinking: one week doesn't exactly give you oodles of time. But that's even better! We're really looking for fun and fuss-free projects that can be whipped up in a day, an afternoon, or even an hour.
For a little inspiration, I though to share some of my latest patchworking endeavors. I've been particularly drawn to solids these days and having some fun with my stash of Kona cottons. I feel like the striking hues really let the patchwork take center stage, and allow me to keep the designs nice and simple, whether for a large bed quilt or smaller wall hanging.
So to get you in the patchworky mood (and since there's something about Fridays that makes me want to share), I'm giving away a few fat quarters from my favorite Kona colors:
Just leave a comment explaining what you love about patchwork or stating what kind of item you'd love to see a patchwork version of (check out this video for inspiration) and you'll be eligible to win some colorful fabrics for your own patchworking pleasure. I'll announce the winner on my blog next Friday, November 5th, by 3 pm EST.
But don't stop there! Once you're creative juices are flowing, check out our submission guidelines and send us your ideas!
