I hope your winter has been easy and filled with much fabric fun. We have seen so many wonderful versions of the BQ patterns on line in the past few months! Thank you always for supporting Maple Island Quilts.

BQ7 option! The newest BQ has that big corner square that was just demanding to be a fabric that was not background! We substituted the Votes for women fabric to see how that would change the look! I like it – what about you? Consider this option for your next BQ7! 36"x36".

BQ by Roberta Penniman. Roberta told us she was on a mission to use her fabrics and create 30-40 charity quilts last year. This fabulous African quilt went to: Camp Erin which is a bereavement camp and program for kids, in Philly and near suburbs. It is a nationwide organization. Roberta is a long arm quilter and did the quilting.



A stunning Cool Corners by Gail Johnson.
