of fons & porter's love of quilting!
just that this photo of my quilt will be in there!
sometimes deadlines are tight... and i was busy at 3am quilting this baby
and when i was done... this was how much thread i had left!
talk about cutting it close!!
...and yes... it is bound in this photo.
i actually bound it once 1/2 the quilting was done...
and then went back and finished the quilting...
i pieced my back as usual...
i also had just borrowed my brother's dslr when i finished this quilt.
so i had lots of fun snapping all kinds of photos with it!
and while it looks all nice & sunny...
this was actually january...
i just got lucky that the day i finished it was right before all the crazy snow storms we had!
did you ever wonder what i was working on during my studio photo shoot?
i showed one photo that showed make life.. but that was it!
so many photos showed what i was working on... that i could only show a few till now!
fons & porter did show a sneak peek at the end of their last issue!
copies are now available in the shop !!
and my quilt is home!!
i'm so happy to have it back!!
Due to popular interest I have re-released this design as a stand alone pattern. The pattern has 4 size options.
It is beautiful! Congratulations!!!

Julie this looks amazing! I'm pretty new to being a follower of your blog but you share some amazing stuff. Just curious what was the first patern you ever had published and did you find them or did they find you? I always wonder how some of you uber talented women (and guys) get "discovered" and turn into the people I blog stalk.
What a great design - and I love that fabric line. It's so cheerful. Congratulations!

I love me some Fons & Porter--congrats on landing your cool pattern in there! You're so creative.
And I am a bit jealous of your super cool studio photos. Seeing as I'm always the one behind the lens, I'll never get anything like that done of me. Rats!
I do love this quilt! I love how the blocks remind me of those map quilts popping up more and more, kinda like a maze. And I love seeing your photos as you worked on this project. Can't wait to see it published in the upcoming magazine - congrats!
Love the new design! Congrats!
Congratulations! This quilt totally rocks. Keep up the great work!!
Such a cute quilt, I can see it working in so many fun fabrics. And I love the extra photos of your studio. I get that magazine so it should be around soon. Way to go Julie!
You know I love all your stuff...but julie...this is amazing! I love it! I think you should just send it to me. You have so many....you won't miss it...too much ;)
*note* word verification is "orkey"....hmmm...they forgot the "d" in front for me..haha!
That is one gorgeous quilt! Love it and can't wait to get my copy in the mail! Love the line of fabric too!! Good for you!!
Beautiful quilt! I can see why it is one of your fabrics. I will be looking for my copy in my mailbox! Congratulations!
This is so cute! You inspire me so much with your new, fresh ideas. I'm more of an old time quilter but seeing modern fabrics and designs are definitely making me look at quilting in an entirely new way. Thanks!
What a clever gal, the pattern looks great
I absolutely love the pattern and color combination! If only I hadn't already started on a quilt with circles... hmmm.. I can work on 2 quilts at once, right?
I really love this quilt. Awesome job and congratulations for it being in the magazine. How exciting.
That is totally amazing. I love it! I honestly did wonder what you were working on in those pics. No wonder you have such a wonderful look on your face!
Quilting Superstar!! :)
