I can’t believe I never blogged about this, but last year I got the privilege of working with Alison Glass on one of her new quilt patterns. Well, she wrote the pattern and all that, but she let me make the quilt on the cover of the paper pattern! (And Angela Walters quilted it! How amazing is that?!) This is her Color Plus Quilt, and it is such a fun pattern. The geese and center are paper pieced, making those triangles gloriously pointy and perfect, and the four corners of the quilt are put together log cabin style. The pattern is super quick to sew (given that you are not an incredibly slow paper piecer like myself), and there are really a lot of possibilities with color arrangement on this one.
I’m using the pattern now to work on a new Queen size quilt for my bed. It will be altered, of course, since the pattern is for a 60″ x 60″ quilt, but I’m excited to see where it goes. I’m an enormous fan of the perfect geese you can sew all in a row with the pattern pieces included with the Color Plus Quilt, so I’m starting there. What fun it will be to replace my beloved AMH Spinning Stars with Juliana Horner’s Rosette + Alison’s pattern in a few months when I finish this one.
I’m giving away a copy of the Color Plus Quilt pattern! To enter, simply tell me, do you keep one quilt on your bed until its begging to be replaced, or do you switch them out with the seasons or otherwise? I’m looking to have a few I can change up when I’d like, so I’m really curious to know what you do! I’ll announce the winner on Friday! :)
