The Mountain Pass quilt is my most recently published work. You can find it in the Summer 2014 issue of Quilter's World magazine. They did an excellent job of presenting this quilt in their magazine. Look at the awesome photo, above! I wish I could take a picture like that!
You can get the magazine at your local shops, or purchase a digital issue at the Quilter's World website. They even have a little video tutorial showing how to sew the curved piecing for this quilt here: Quilter's World Magazine
This quilt is a great stash buster - which is exactly what I did. Here are some of the fabrics I used, pulled straight out of my stash. With this quilt, the scrappier, the better.
I sewed lots and lots of little pink rainbows! And little blue rainbows! And little green rainbows!
I kept a little basket on my sewing desk to help keep things organized as I worked.
I also kept each stack of fabric strips in it's own little baggie with a slip of paper, labeling the strips.
This was a challenging quilt for me, but it came together beautifully and I'm so glad I made it.
You may wonder what happens to my quilts when they arrive back home from the magazine. I am enjoying this one on my bed for a little while. Kit Kat and William immediately put their mark of approval on it.
I try hard to keep all cat hair off my quilts pre-publication, but afterwards....
Kit Kat: "Oh yes! I love this quilt! Let me roll all over it and mark it with my silky black fur!"
William: "You look so silly. A respectable cat would never do that on camera."
Kit Kat: "Relax. I'm tired from all that action. Time to take a nap."
William: "Okay. Just stay on your side. I've got to wash up for my photo-op."
Just a quick reminder....please join me tomorrow for the next installment in the Star Block of the Month tutorial series.
And Friday will be my segment of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 9 Blog Tour. There will be giveaways!
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!
