Remember the Cotton + Steel quilt I showed you recently that was for issue 2 of Quilt Now (out the end of August)? Well, this is the other version using the same block but in a slightly different way.
I used a line from Dear Stella for this one (seaworthy). So far I haven't seen anyone in the UK stocking it, which is a shame because it's a great line (and has a pink colourway too, for a girly twist), but it may come sneaking over here eventually. I'll keep my eyes peeled for it.
And to remind you, this was the Cotton + Steel version....
I used some of the selvage from Cotton + Steel for a label. Which I happen to think was genius, but isn't really. I'm just so sleep deprived at the minute that walking seems genius to me (oh another genius thing - the backing is Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman wide screen. That's 108" wide for quilt backs. Thank you for your genius, Carolyn. Thank you very much. I got it from Fat Quarter Shop. I have since got much more).
(also - LOOK AT ME BLOGGING!!!!! Wow. Do wonders never cease?)
So, you can pick this pattern up in issue 2 of Quilt Now (end of August) but you can always pick up issue 1 now, because it's super pretty. Digital edition as well as real life paper ones are at www.moremags.com and you can find it out in the wild in sainsburys, asda, whsmith, morrisons and tesco (as well as some local quilt shops. If you want yours to stock it, tell them and then tell them to email me! I can hook them up, probably not for issue 1, but for future issues). And pink castle fabrics too (if any other US places pick it up I'll let you know but for now, that's your sole US store).
