New Modern Quilt Relish Patterns & Magazine Reveal

We have so much to reveal and share today!! 
Here is our first bit of news.  Janelle gave us a phone call Friday, from the Quilting Connection in Ames, IA.  It is the store we used to work in--full of fabric, full of fun, and all around fantastic.  She was eager to congratulate us on having a quilt published in a magazine on their shelves.  Quite a surprise for our old co-workers to be leafing through the pages and to see our smiling faces looking up at them!

Yes, we have a quilt published in a really wonderful magazine!  The link for the McCall's Quilting America Makes Fast Quilts is here.  

Introducing Cafeteria Line!
Cafeteria Line, Modern Quilt Relish.  
Our quilt's feature page is here.  There is lots of information on that page.  Including the fact April West did the quilting that you see!  We used the Robert Kaufman's Stockholm fabric in the blue and green color way.  Robin Zingone really hit a home run with the fabric design.
Love that fabric.  It is mixed with a couple of solids. 

 It features all of our design hallmarks.  Negative Space, Asymmetry, Simple Shapes and the use of Color and Value to create focus and depth.  Can you tell we are practicing our talks for Quilt Market?  

The magazine and the fabric (or as close as possible) are available at The Quilting Connection, Ames, IA 515-233-3048.  Tell them Marny and Jill sent you. ;-)  It is a busy shop so keep your fingers crossed.

Can you believe it?  We have even more exciting news.  We wanted to share with you, our readers,
what we are about to debut at Spring Quilt Market in Kansas City.
Today we are just sharing the covers.  In upcoming posts we will go into detail about each one and share photos of other versions.  Our online Pattern Shop is updated, and the Quilting Connection will have some too!  After Market we hope your local shops carry them as well.  Let them know if feel so inclined.  Thank you!.  And without further ado...

Introducing our two new patterns!!  

Recipe Cards
Taffy Twists
And now it is off to Quilt Market.  We are eager to see old friends, meet new friends and to see lots of online friends in person!!   We are certain to squeeze in a fair amount of work as well.  
Till Tuesday....


  1. Oh, pls stop! :) I can hardly take it all IN. Not only the patterns but the fabric choices are stop on. More home runs for you.

    I have to have "Recipe Cards."

  2. What an incredible journey you two are experiencing! You keep blessing us with more goodies! I'm hoping there will be a copy of the magazine by the time I get to Quilting Connection! I also adore your 'Recipe Cards,' and with not one but two quilts to make for babies coming this fall, I think I just found my pattern. Although 'taffy twists' is charming.

  3. Congrats on the magazine! Great quilt - I love Stockholm (why is it that I don't own any?-must fix that).

    The two new patterns are wonderful too - love the Taffy Twist idea.

    See you in a few days :)

  4. Way to go! Can't wait to see them in person. Have fun on the road to market.

  5. CONGRATS! All fabulous news! I really like Taffy Twists... I'll see you on Friday!

  6. What exciting news! I LOVE the new patterns! I hope you bring the quilts to show & tell next month!
