Oh, how I love string quilts. Well, what I really love are all of the fabulous scraps strips that go into them. Little bits of odds and ends that come together to create something better than they would have ever been on their own. Here’s one of my latest, Rock Star!
I’m so happy to share that it is currently gracing the pages of the October 2017 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. It’s a great scrap issue and I absolutely love the feature shot of my quilt. I wish that it was in my own house…
Once again, I find myself trying to find my own quilt-voice in the convergence zone of modern and traditional design that I often find myself drawn into. I think the modern elements of this project are the alternate grid work, exaggerated scale of a traditional block design, and use of negative space. Mix that with a traditional concept of scrap string quilts and this is where I landed!
Here’s a close up of the beautiful quilting done once again by Tracey. I really enjoy seeing how her creativity and talent adds to my projects to make them complete.
So if you don’t already have a copy of the October 2017 issue, get it while you can! Save up those scraps and make something you love.
Happy Stash quilting,

I’m seeing this post in 2023…I Love what you made and I would have run out to get the magazine had I seen it back then. I too love string quilts and am totally impressed with what you did.
I too, am just now discovering your *beautiful* work in 2023! Had I known, I would have bought the magazine back then too, darn it! Congrats on being selected for the APQ feature. It really is a delightful quilt. 🙂
