Sticks and Stones…..

Sticks and Stones…..

I love getting published in American Patchwork and Quilting. They really are a first class organization, and this is the second time I have worked with them. I am looking forward to more projects with them (hint, hint, early next year! 🙂 )

This issue hit the newsstand, April 7th….so yeah, I am a little late telling you about it, but I am pretty sure you can still find it out there, at least I hope you can!

The quilt that I created for this June 2015 issue is called Along Those Lines. My working title was Tools of the Trade because to me it represented the sticks and stones from a Shaman’s bag of tools for his or her trade. And that visual came in my head because of the name of the line of fabric I used for this quilt. Yup, this is another “one-liner” quilt for me, using David Butler’s Parson Gray Line, Shaman.

I have been thinking about quite a few different quilt concepts using lines and “circles” of sorts and they all have a “sticks and stones” theme (in my head at least). For some reason (I am not sure why) I didn’t feel right calling this quilt Sticks and Stones but truth be told, I will probably always refer to it as Sticks and Stones No. 1 in my heart.  I like American Patchwork’s name for it better than anything that I could think up. Usually, I am pretty pleased with my own names, but every once in awhile, I am stumped!

And I loved AP&Q’s photos, So I went with them for this post. You can get kits for this quilt at Crimson Tate here, so get one while you can!  And I bet Heather has some issues available too.

That’s it for today. I so miss writing blog posts like I used to. I know the site needs updating like mad, but I just never seem to have time for it. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more up-to-date photos and sharing. (and speaking of which, I am almost up to 1,000 Likes on my Studio Facebook page, so be sure to keep an eye on that and here for a big grand giveaway!) I do have quite a few more posts and things to share down the road, so hopefully I will get a chance to get my thoughts together and take the time to share them with you soon.

Until then,
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy!

Scott

    Congratulations, Scott! I love this quilt. I’ll admit, when I saw this Parson Gray collection, I wasn’t too stoked about it, but I have to say I love these in this quilt.

  • Funny, but the “circles” remind me of bubbles rising through a maze! Great quilt no matter what the name!!
