Black Eyed Susan - Quilter's World Summer 2017 Cover Quilt
Black Eyed Susan
It's the closest I'm going to come to being a cover girl... my quilt was selected as the Cover Quilt on the Summer 2017 issue of Quilter's World Magazine!
When I got my quilt back from the publisher along with a complimentary copy of the magazine, I didn't really pay much attention to the magazine right away... then about an hour later I picked it up, looked at the cover and thought the quilt looked familiar.... Well a few seconds later it hit me and the happy dance began ...... MY QUILT IS ON THE COVER!
As a designer, it's always a special honor to have your quilt selected to be on the cover of a magazine or pattern book. It's the first image a customer will see and hopefully it prompts them to purchase the issue.
A little bit about Black Eyed Susan ...
It measures 63" x 63" and can easily do double duty. As shown in the photo, it's the perfect compliment as a bed covering and can bring a summery touch to a guest bedroom. For summer gatherings, it could function as a table topper over a patio or picnic table and yet, still look stylish in the sunroom draped over a wicker loveseat.
It is predominately pieced but does have raw-edge fusible applique for the flower centers, stems and leaves. The LeMoyne Stars are pieced with an assortment of yellow fabrics, so this is a great way to utilize some stash fabrics.
And the best part - these Black Eyed Susan don't need water and aren't going to wilt!
