American Patchwork and Quilting Calendar 2016 (and give away!)

Give away is now closed! 
Thanks for playing!!


I have the honor of being featured in the American Patchwork and Quilting Calendar for the third year in a row! I am so excited to have this quilt chosen for the month of April. It's a log cabin quilt with a large half square triangle in the center. I repeated those same half square triangles in the border.


I had fun playing with lots of 'low volume' prints in the light side of the blocks and added almost everything else to the dark side of the blocks. I added some dots, batiks, Kaffe's, black & whites, repros, and even a few Aboriginal prints. I mostly chose bright, clear colors.

Last week this quilt returned home to me, as well as some copies of the AP&Q calendar. I'm excited to be able to share a copy of the calendar with one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which month of the year is your favorite and why. If you don't have one favorite, just choose one randomly...I'll never know! <wink>

Enjoy every stitch!
Diane

  1. Congrats on having your quilt chosen for the calendar! Great fabric selections for your log cabins! April is ~one~ of my favorite months - it's my birthday month, the azaleas are in bloom and the weather is usually still wonderfully cool & spring-like. October is my other favorite month - I love Halloween and again, we usually have some cool, crisp weather.

  16. so many things I want to try and so little time to do so. Playing with log cabin blocks is one of my bucket list items - I have made them before in a quilt, but have never just played with them. My favorite month is probably July - the month my grandbabies (triplets) were born.
