Here is the quilt that I designed over a year ago, when the Williamsburg Toile, by Windham, came out. I love medallion quilts and using that beautiful bird for the center was a no-brainer. The rest of it came together as I played with the fabric, looking for balance with the toile, etc. I was surprised and delighted to see how popular this pattern became. What's Your Stitch 'N Stuff, the LQS, always generously supports my patterns, and displays my quilts. They became quite excited about this one. They used up all their red and also the blue toile in kits and they have sold out of them. They may have one or two left in brown toile, also lovely. They now have kits of the scrappy version, including the wool for the birds.
(You can reach them at 757-523-2711 if you need a pattern or a scrappy kit -- they have chosen awesome fabric!)So this is the issue, April 2009, page 60. Think of me when you see that bird, looking proud and pretty, and maybe even strutting a little. Give me that much, will you? I'll be back to earth soon enough, I'm sure!
