Roundhouse is ready! (And Festival and sale!)
If you're stopping by from the Blogger's Quilt Festival - Welcome!
I forgot that one could make two entries in to the festival, and so, Rendezvous was my first, and I decided this will be my second (since I got the pattern finished this weekend).
I blogged about this quilt before, so many of you have undoubtedly already seen it, but if not, here is my Roundhouse.
This quilt is special to me for a few reasons.
1) It was my first ever magazine published quilt.
I work part-time as a pattern editor with American Quilter magazine, and happily, they liked this design of mine enough to publish it!
(This is the cover of the issue, with Amy's gorgeous Spinning Wheels)
2) It was my all Anna Maria spectrum quilt (a quilt on my bucket list, that I'd been wanting to make after meeting the lovely Mrs. Horner).
It was so indulgent working with so many of her prints together!
and 3) It lives on my couch and served as part of a fort today.
(I should have got a picture).
This is a wonderfully fun quilt to piece, whether you go scrappy or high contrast. (You can see more options of the design in my original post about it). The quilt uses a basic house-shaped piece and half-square triangles, without any Y-seams.
I even have an acrylic template available to make for easier cutting.
Made by me with all Anna Maria Horner fabrics
