Today, I'm excited to announce my next quilt publication, called Colorado Vibe. Colorado Vibe is featured in the McCall's Quick Quilts October/November 2015 issue.
Colorado Vibe is a quick quilt to make. I made it in a few hours at the spring Longmont Quilt Retreat. Although I made this quilt with modern fabrics, I can easily see this in just about anything style of fabric, perhaps in batiks or traditional. Share your version of your quilt on my facebook page. I would love to see your translation.
Thank you to Art Gallery, The Warm Company and Aurifil for sponsoring me materials to make this quilt. I'm so appreciative. Also, thank you to Deb and Susan at McCall's, who I have enjoyed working with this past year.
A huge thank you to RJR for allowing me to giveaway a fat quarter bundle of their Cotton Supreme Solids. The bundle consists of 10 fat quarters.
