Today we sent a new special issue to the printer. It's called Simply Quick Quilts and it will be on newsstands by September 3 (earlier in lots of places). My quilt, Modern Links, is one of the patterns, and it's a real departure for me. I found a chain block on EQ and started playing with it, and before I knew it I was making blocks and putting the whole thing together. It just intrigued me and I had to make it! The amazing thing was, even though it's a good queen size, it was super fast. The blocks are easy, and there's so much negative space that it was done very quickly and off to the quilter, the super-talented Karen Dovala. I can't wait to see it in print!
