I’ve been WAITING to tell about my Zippy Star quilt, which appears in the Summer 2014 issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited, and here it is!
Didn’t they do a great job of the “glamor shot”? I love the setting
And the magazine has clear instructions with lots of helpful pictures. OK, I wrote the instructions and their staff improved on my pictures, so both are pretty good! There’s a pillow cover to go with the quilt, just for fun.
The Michael Miller company worked with me to choose fabric for the quilt and I’m very pleased with how it came out. The central square fabric is called “Tara’s Fireworks” and is a print made from a quilt one of MM’s employees created with their Cotton Couture solids. So of course the star points made from Cotton Couture solids match perfectly!
The quilt is fairly small (48 x 58) so I quilted it on my home machine. This was such fun and I’m so pleased with how it is featured in the magazine!
