If you like a challenge, then take a look at Amethyst (page 102), a gorgeous bed-sized quilt of diamonds and squares by designer Christina McCourt. We’ve included a Sew Easy lesson to walk you through making diamond rectangle units. Other lovely traditional quilts in this issue are Oh, Mercy (page 32), by Angie Milligan, and Rouge (page 92), a beauty in red and white by Krisanne Watkins.
A more modern take on a traditional design can be found with Key Largo (page 56), a Log Cabin variation done up in beautiful blue batiks with a touch of appliqué.
If you’re more inclined to start out the year working on a small project, consider New Arrival (page 80), an adorable baby quilt that you can personalize with whimsical embroidery or appliqué, or Pacific Splash (page 86), a pretty table runner that features a slick and novel technique – reverse appliqué.
We hope you enjoy the variety of projects we’ve offered in this issue, and that they inspire you all through your quilting journey this year!
