Okay. I can finally let the cat out of the bag. Know how I haven’t really been showing many Flock quilts? Well here is one of the reasons why; my first quilt with Flock is one the cover of the soon to hit the stands June 2012 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting:
You have no idea how excited I am. Not only do I love the heck out of Flock, and not only is this my first magazine quilt, but it landed smack dab on the cover. If I weren’t feeling so insanely sick right now I’d be skipping around the room.
This quilt was insane to make, not so much because it is a difficult quilt to make, but because it was done on the shortest of deadlines. I had to piece it in two days, and then send it off to the extraordinary Lisa Sipes, who had to quilt it lickity-split. And not only did she quilt it amazingly, but she also took care of the binding because we weren’t going to have time for the extra back-and-forth shipping and still make the deadline. You know I love the hell out of you, right Lisa???
I love the subtle complexity of Lisa’s quilting. Keep your eyes out for lots more collaborations between Lisa and me in the coming months and years. Yay!!!
Know what else I love about this quilt? The back. You know I’m going to have this back up on my bed every once in a while…
Wanna know another awesome thing about this quilt? Know who’s gonna have kits? Lola Pink Fabrics. The awesome just doesn’t stop. Love you J & J!!!
So keep your eyes out for the new issue of APQ; it goes on sale April 3rd. Yippee!!!!
