|Dip Bowls baby quilt from Picnic.|
Kits will be available at Quiltcon.
The two winners of Picnic, our modern quilt book, from week one are...Doris and Vanesa. The random generator worked! Thank you all for participating.
We loved all the comments. They were very thoughtful. We enjoyed reading a variety of viewpoints!
Here are the results of our nonscientific poll.
- 5 for asymmetry
- 6 for negative space
- 9 bold colors, solid color fabrics, graphic prints
- 6 clean lines and shapes
- several of your own ideas.
Seems like a toss up, with a slight edge to bold colors, solids, and graphic prints. (So it is a lot about the fabric...something we call all relate to.)
We have a trunk show and a Picnic book signing coming up February 2nd at the Quilting Connection in Ames, Iowa. We'll be signing from 1-3 that afternoon. The quilts from the book are heading there this week!
Here is this week's chance to win a copy of Picnic. Two winners will be chosen next Tuesday.
We're inquiring about blocks and layout. Choose and comment on what appeals to you the most.
- Alternative blocks with a nontraditional layout?
- Improvisational piecing without a formal layout?
Comments open until midnight central time January 21st. Good luck!
