You guys. YOU GUYS. I almost passed out over my coffee this morning when I was scrolling through facebook and saw someone post the cover of this magazine, and then my copy arrived today!
This quilt top is designed by Stacey Day of Stacey in Stitches. Go check out her blog! She’s got lots of interesting things to see, and I had a great time working with her.
When I was trying to decide what to quilt, I wanted to keep the sea theme of the fabrics. The feathery frond int he middle reminds me of sea palms and anemones, and the pebbles reminded me of sand and pearls. I did very simple quilting int he teardrop piecing because the fabric was busy and it would not be visible (these were simple waves, like ripples on the ocean). It was a fun to blend my quilting with the pattern and fabrics. Thanks for this opportunity, Stacey!
