Finding out that my Zippers quilt was selected as the cover quilt of Annie's Quilting with Precuts was the best Christmas present. I actually found out a few days before Christmas but needed to keep it under wraps until the magazine went on sale to the public.
This quilt is made with 2-1/2" precut strips paired with neutral solid. I selected a jelly roll of Bobbins and Bits designed by Pat Sloan for Moda. I fell in love with the fresh color palette.
While I was working on this quilt late last summer, I had several quilts in progress all with similar publisher deadlines. As the projects were attempting to merge together on my cutting table, I had to QUICKLY figure out a way to keep them organized. I grabbed the first thing available - a vintage enamel wash pan.
I am avid collector of all things antique and vintage. (That sounds much better than auction-junkee!) So it only made sense that I had several of these pans at the studio. And the best part - they work great! I had enough room to put the yardage along with the unrolled jelly roll. As I was cutting the pieces, I could easily toss the extra pieces back into the pan to keep them together. I now have 4 or 5 of these pan in the studio with projects-in-progress in them!
If you make a quilt using my pattern, be sure to share a photo of it with me on my Facebook Page - Masterpiece Quilting I would love to see your version!
