My Chambray Quilt is in Quilty Magazine!

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

I'm so excited to finally be able to share with you one of my secret sewing quilts from early this year! Meet "Somewhere in Indiana," published in the July/August 2018 issue of Quilty!

The quilt is a traditional log cabin pattern, but made with chambray! All the fabrics are from Robert Kaufman.

The denim-colored fabrics are from the Neon Neppy collection and have neon specks of color in them! (There is grey, denim, blue, royal, and charcoal. The magenta chambray is from the Greenwich collection.)

The quilt was pieced and quilted with Aurifil 50wt Grey #2605.

For quilting, I used the walking foot on my domestic machine to quilt straight lines across the quilt. I really wanted to do cross-hatch quilting (quilt the diagonal lines the other direction too), but couldn't squeeze it in before the deadline.

Although the magazine named the quilt "Somewhere in Indiana," all my pictures were taken "Somewhere in Missouri" (aka our frosty yard in February!).

I love the way this quilt feels! The chambray is so soft! A completely different feel than a traditional cotton fabric quilt. I just want to snuggle up in it!

The quilt is just barely a cover girl (can you spot it in the bottom left of the cover??).

And the quilt makes appearances in the table of contents on page 4, in the actual pattern on pages 12-16, in the "Material Difference" article on pages 18-19, and on the inside back cover where you can buy a kit! The quilt is even featured on the homepage of The Quilting Company website right now!

This is my first quilt pattern in a print magazine! (I've had quilt blocks published before - in November 2016, April 2017, and November 2017 - and a pattern in a digital magazine.) And I'll tell you a secret - I have two more quilts in upcoming issues of Quilty too!

I will be signing every copy I can find! (They always have Quilty at my local Wal-Mart!) I think I'll leave fun notes inside too!

Be sure to pick up a copy of Quilty! If you can't find it locally to you, you can order a print or digital copy on The Quilting Company website. They even have the kit if you want to order that!

  2. Congratulations, Laura! It's a gorgeous quilt. I never thought about signing the copies of magazines at a store...that would be such a fun surprise for the buyer! It would be especially fun here because we live in a very small town :)

  3. How exciting to have your first print publication! The quilt is just lovely. It looks like you had just the right amount of wind for stunning outdoor pictures.

    That fabric is fun! I don't think I've ever seen chambray. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. The little flecks of color really add something.

  8. What a beautiful quilt. I wondered how chambray would work up and now I can tell. Congratulations on being published. In a time when so many print mags are going digital, this is fantastic. Sign every copy you can get a hold of.

  9. Congratulations! I thought Quilty had been discontinued and it was one of my favourite magazines. So I am happy to see that it still exists and that you have a pattern in it. The fabric is really lovely and I like the soft palette with the pop of magenta.

  17. Congratulations! I'm smiling at the idea of you sneaking into Walmart to sign your magazine. What a fun surprise for someone. Be sure to leave a note! That would be so awesome to find. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
