Winter Recap

Originally published 2/27/2024, via email

Here in Minnesota, the weather has been so mild, it hardly seems like winter. I hope that wherever you are you it has been a good time to quilt.

Some readers have sent us some fabulous versions of patterns from Maple Island Quilts and we always love to share these fresh ideas with you.

Clothworks created these wonderful Wobble digital quilts with Earth Song by Laurel Burch. The projects are 48 x 62.

Mary Lou created this version of BQ5 Encore using the 9” blocks. Thanks to The Other Quilt Shop for testing this pattern last year!

Susan used the Diva 5 as inspiration to set this special center and use her collection of Australian indigenous prints. It just makes me smile! The Diva 5 pattern does NOT contain instructions for this project!

Jeanette created this Scooch Over 2 memory quilt for a friend by using pieces of her husband’s Hawaiian shirts. What a wonderful remembrance project. Her friend commented that it was like postcards from heaven. 54"x 72".
