Check Out Dear Quilty – and Some Pattern News

So this is kind of fun. Mary Fons has put together a new compilation book called Dear Quilty which is a collection of the best patterns from the now-defunct Quilty Magazine. She chose to include my Colorful Chevrons quilt in the book and they are even using it in their ad campaign.

Although I don’t get any royalties from the sale of this book, since they already paid me for the use of it when it was published in the magazine, it’s still pretty flattering to be included.

I’ve had great success with this design, which was based on my original quilt of a similar name, Charming Chevrons. Once the rights to the design reverted back to me, I was able to create a PDF pattern for the quilt (in 4 sizes) and most recently I’ve started creating print versions, too!

I love it when I can get a lot of use out of my quilts and patterns and they can be shared with a wider audience!

    Congratulations and thanks for sharing. As a newbie to Barrie Ontario and to quilting I spend more time ogling than sewing, but I am adventurous and loving the challenges. The ladies at my local quilt shop, Simcoe Quilt and Sew have classes, workshops, and sewing lounge. If you buy and carry one of their nylon bags they give a 15% discount with The bonus of meeting other quilters.

    Quilty is defunct? What a shame. I enjoyed that magazine. I certainly think your chevrons is a worthy inclusion in the book. It’s on my list of things I really want to make!
