American Patchwork & Quilting….Quilt-Along!!

apq-quiltalong-800x136

Quilt-Along…What in the heck is a Quilt- Along?….well the Editors of American Patchwork & Quilting have decided to start a Quilt- Along with one of the designs in their newest magazine on news stands December 3rd….some of you will have it sooner if you have the subscription…The designer is my favorite person who shares the same name as me…(but somehow she got an extra “s”)…Lissa Alexander who just happens to be the awesome marketing director from Moda Fabrics…her quilt shown here is in this next issue and we (a bunch of designers) were invited to stitch it “our” way and blog about it!!!  102128533_600COVER_600

The designers are an eclectic group and you are sure to find someone who’s quilting style is just like yours and you may want to take their color advice…keep in mind we all had to sign up to do something different, so all of our quilts turn out different! yeah!!!…The other designers are listed in the magazine or Lissa has listed them all on her blog…click HERE for Lissa’s blog if you cannot wait to see if your fav designer is quilting-along.

I hope that you dig through your COLLECTION (not stash, collections are “of value”….we will talk about this later) like I did and use some  that fabric you just had to have….or maybe this will inspire you to try something out of your box, like Lissa did…Isn’t her quilt awesome?…I am so glad they asked me to join as I have not made this pattern before and I knew I could tweak it in my primitive sort of way… So THANKS again to Jennifer and Elizabeth (APQ Editors)for creating something different…and again to Lissa for a great design to work with…

Welcome to my Half Yard fabric collection…you are looking at a half yards of all of the reproduction fabrics that we have had in our shop…not ever… but for awhile now…I wish I would have thought of this sooner!…this is what the benefit package of a shop owner looks like… I never really get to use this collection…so this is really fun to pick this quilt from this glorious group of fabrics…. When I design or pick fabric for quilt I have to use fabric in the shop so we can kit it…looking at this picture it doesn’t really look like a lot does it?  I didn’t think so…if you are ever in need…you may have to count on me to help you out with that 5″ square that you need to finish that kit you bought 5 years ago????   lol…I am here for you…..This retirement collection will be making lots of scrappy quilts someday…as I said nothing bigger than a half yard, I don’t ask for much???…I will be back in another post with my color choices…any guesses????    Stitch on…LB

    That quilt would look beautiful with your new Floral Gatherings fabric.

    Awesome “collection”! Mine is in several bins, a closet, a few drawers and an armoire! It would be nice to have it all in one place! and I agree, you should use Floral Gatherings! Love those shirtings!

    Wow! I wish my “collection” looked like yours. This quilt-a-long sounds fun.

    Whatever your color choices, I know I’m going to love it. It would look good in anything from your “collection”!! : )

    As you we’ll know, I love your “collection” and being able to find that “one” needed fabric!! Can’t wait to see a 3/4″ triangle quilt made with all of those fabrics! Happy quilting!

    You can tell you don’t use it- the piles are too neat! What a beautiful site. You win. You will need a long long life to sew that up. I can’t believe when I make a scrap quilt and it doesn’t even make a dent in the scraps.
