When I designed Beautiful Bouquets I knew I really liked the design and I hoped it would be accepted for publication. For those who don't know, designers receive a call for submissions from the publisher for each magazine and I typically submit 3-5 designs for each call with the hopes that maybe 1 will be accepted. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be selected as the cover quilt!
Beautiful Bouquets is a great stash buster with each bouquet featuring a different set of spring colored fabrics. The precise stems and leaves are achieved with a bit of paper-piecing. I used fabrics from my stash to make quilt with the Soft & Bright batting graciously provided by The Warm Company.
Also with her name on the cover is my friend, the amazing Debby Brown of Debby Brown Quilts. She writes a super-informative quilting column which is always a must-read.
Making this cover even more special is the location of the photo shoot - my friends Ben & Lana's beautiful home!
You can pick up your copy of Quilter's World at your local quilt shop, at variety of craft retailers or online. I would love to see your version of Beautiful Bouquets!
