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.
Modern Quilts Unlimited is on sale now! You can find my pattern and many other great quilts in this Spring issue available at your local book stores, Joann's and Pink Chalk. You can also get a subscription (both digital and hard copy) at Modern Quilts Unlimited's site.
