Kick off the New Year with fresh new quilt designs in the Quiltmaker January/February 2018 issue! Find six creative designs using just two blocks from popular designers including Wendy Sheppard and Nancy Mahoney.

There’s also a clever design in two sizes, both using pre-cut strips, along with a brand new Project Linus pattern and more.
Let’s preview some quilts!
Cover Quilt: Caribbean Sunset features beautiful stars sparkle in a lattice of blue in this classic two-block quilt. These clever blocks give the illusion of a complicated on point setting without all the work.
Snowbirds: Create a snowy mountain town with Tricia Patterson’s Snowbirds quilt pattern. This quilt can be made using the original colors or can be made scrappy to add some more diversity to your own version of this little mountain town.
Color Me: Foundation pieced boxes of crayons make this cute baby quilt too cute to pass up. Just pick your three favorite colors and you’re ready to sew.
Prism Blooms: Create a color explosion with this stunning bed quilt by Wendy Sheppard. A variety of tone-on-tone batiks were used in contrast with a rich, dark background. Carefully placed colors and blocks can create a pattern within the overall pattern or place blocks and colors completely randomly for a more scrappy appearance. Kits available.
Fresh Air: Bring the magic of nature indoors with this pretty quilt. Two tree blocks and a snowflake block are arranged to create a pleasing radial design that can be enjoyed all season long.
Briar Rose: Strip piecing steals the show in this delightful quilt. Three simple blocks combine strip piecing and simple triangles to create a unique lattice of color. This quilt is easily adaptable to a variety of fabric preferences.
