This day is finally here.  I have been waiting since December to share this quilt finish with you...  I am in a magazine!  This quilt, Horsefly, is my first magazine published quilt pattern.  Last week, I shared my first published block in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 7, now today, I get to show you my first published quilt in Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine.  What a month!!

This quilt is named Horsefly.   It began with the idea to make the classic Shoo-fly block into it's own oversized whole-quilt block.  Horsefly is Shoo-fly on steroids, with the whole quilt finishing around 75" x 75".  To make this quilt feel playful and springy, I used Patty Young's Textured Basics line.  I just love the striped binding.

This quilt is easy to put together.... the pattern is based around off-centered 4-patch and 9-patch blocks that make up the mosaics of color.  It makes a nice large sized confident beginner's quilt.
