Square Web Quilt Pattern! Do You See the Fish?

Got scraps? This Spider Web variation quilt pattern eats them up! 
The "webs" are square-ish and a little wonky. 
This quilt is easier to make than it looks! Fun too.

This quilt measures 64" x 64". To make an X-Long Twin (64" x 81") 
just add two more rows of blocks to the length.

Clear directions, lots of how-to photos. 15 Pages.
No paper-piecing. No foundations. No stress.
If you don't love it, let me know and I'll issue a full refund.

As usual, I've added some "I spy" fun. Nice fish, huh? 
This is definitely a fun quilt to make.
Help me spread this around: Pin, Like on fb, blog, Tweet, etc. Thanks!!

Meet Tula Pink

Elizabeth Maxson in St. Louis, MO has a very good post on her blog The Adventures of Elizabeth about quilter and fabric designer Tula Pink (pictured above). Look at the quilt on the design wall behind her! Wow! The photos on her blog are stunning.

Elizabeth was doing a photo shoot at Tula's studio (a renovated dairy barn) for an article in Artists and Makers magazine. Isn't this studio great?

Selvage Quilt from CV Quiltworks

Selvage quilt by Karen at Canton Village Quilt Works. This is one of the patterns in my book: Quilts from the Selvage Edge (AQS 2008). I really like the way she got so much color in there! Nice!

Kid's Art Would Make a Nice Quilt

I found this on the Joe Tulips Quilts blog. She saw this display in a school and thought it would make a good quilt. I like the kids' circles even more than Kandinsky's.

Lamp Gallery Quilt Pattern!

Here's my brand new quilt pattern: Lamp Gallery! Search your stash to see what cool lamps you have in there. Good for novelty prints and fussy-cutting.  

This applique quilt measures 51" x 62." Directions are also given for Twin and X-Long Twin size.
There are three methods of applique to choose from. The border fabric is striped, not pieced.

My favorite lamp is the plum colored one above. I had fun choosing the fabrics and making these blocks. It's a very soothing project. Quick finish too, which is nice.
