Hi everyone! I’m excited to introduce a new complimentary pattern, the Virginia Reel Pillow. Virginia Reel is a quilt that I designed for the folks over at Fat Quarterly. Most of you are probably familiar with that magazine, but if you are not, it is an online-only magazine that comes out 4 times a year. Each issue is absolutely chock full of quilts, projects, interviews – with no ads. It is really a great deal.
For Issue 6, which comes out early next week, I designed a quilt called “Virginia Reel” in my Veranda line. I called it that because it is comprised of dozens of pinwheels that seem to spin between pairs of columns, just like dancers in a reel.
Want to take a peek?
The columns and rows upon which the pinwheel hangs wrap around to the pillow back!
Yes. I used more Doodlebug buttons for the back. Buttons with stripes! Can’t get enough of them.
I’m giving away my sample of the pillow right here!
