Dresden Escape Published in Make Modern Magazine

It’s true, I’m back from vacation!  Sandy is now vacationing on a beach on the east coast and hopefully avoiding tropical storms…or worse!

We’re excited to announce that a pattern we designed has been published in the most recent Make Modern Magazine, a digital quilting magazine.

Last August when Sandy came to visit, we decided to design a quilt for mom and give it to her for Christmas.  Mom is a fan of 30’s prints and we wanted her quilt to look modern and fresh so we added lots of white space and some pinwheels.  Mom loves her quilt and here it is…Dresden Escape revealed at last!
Close up curve with logoThis is a bed size quilt with a total of 9 Dresden Plate blocks and it measures 89 x 89 inches square.  We had fun shopping for the backing.  It’s a lime green with white polka dots…another modern touch.

We really enjoy our subscription.  The Make Modern Magazine team does a great job of posting modern patterns designed by quilters from around the world along with interesting articles, tips and tricks for quilters of all skill levels.  It’s also nice to have a magazine in digital format…less clutter in my sewing room!

      Thanks, Wendy! We had to do separate photos since we live in different states…we’ll have to work on getting a ‘group’ shot!

    Hi ladies! I’ll just bet that your Mom loves this quilt to pieces. Not only is it crafted in her favorite fabrics, but all the love and care that was sewn into it is priceless. It is gorgeous. ~smile~ Roseanne

      Yes, she does love it! When we hung it on the clothesline for pictures, she was there to make sure it didn’t touch the ground and get dirty!
