It’s Out!!!

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.


This is one of several pages of instructions

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!

Here’s the magazine cover. It should be at Barnes & Noble and Joann’s soon!

  1. Congratulations, Mary! That is SO cool! I love the patterns and colors – and of course that YOUR quilt is featured! Neat!

  2. Absolutely stunning quilt and the photography sets it off perfectly. Many quilters will see this and it will instantly make their to-do list. That is the way it is for striking and unique quilts, such as this one. Bravo!

  3. Wow! I absolutely love the quilt and the addition of a pillow to match! Congratulations! It’s fantastic and can’t wait to see the magazine!

  4. Hi Mary…I LOVE the design, nice offset focal point and the white background really shows off the colors and the star. Congratulations!!! The photo is great. The pots in the background have similiar colors as the quilt and so the pots and the green plants in them complement the quilt nicely. Michele
