Skipping Pinwheels on the horizon....

This time last year I was waiting very impatiently to see my first published quilts in Quilty Magazine. It hit the shelves last September with two of my designs inside...

I'm still so in love with my Anna Maria Horner Skipping Pinwheels quilt and it rests comfortably on my guest bed. I'm also so excited to get started on developing this quilt into a My Fabric Relish pattern since I will obtain my publishing rights next month. Yay!

Now, I am not going to pretend that I designed some super original block design that no one has seen before. It's a block with and a very basic design using only half-square triangles (HSTs) and squares that become pluses and commonly called the "Calico Puzzle" block.  I designed this quilt with beginners in mind and Quilty was a platform to reach those beginning quilters (even though their readership was anywhere from novice to professional). As a teacher by nature (and heart), I embrace the philosophy of catering to beginners wholeheartedly and hope my patterns provide the same comfort including Skipping Pinwheels.

I have since made another Skipping Pinwheels quilt using Amy Butler's Bright Heart with a very vibrant green chambray background and now need to figure out which one should be the pattern's cover?

  1. 2 very nice quilts and congrats on getting another one in print. Personally though I can`t believe it I prefer the first one, this is surprising as green is my favourite colour

  2. I find it easier to see the blocks in the first one, so I pick it too.
