This quilt was designed with friends at a retreat and remained unfinished for a year while I contemplated what should go in the big.white.center.
Eventually I decided on petals, finished the quilt, and submitted it to F&W, where it was accepted for the January 2019 issue of Quilty. I love Quilty, so I was thrilled. And now the January issue, including my quilt, is available at Barnes & Noble.
Once I got going on what to put in the center, I made another version with a ring in the center and the addition of a floral border:
If you pick up the magazine but want to make the quilt with the center ring instead of the petals, e-mail me and I’ll tell you the measurements. Alternatively, just trace a dessert plate from your collection, which is what I did 😀
Hi Mary, congratulations on having your quilt featured in Quilty Magazine! It really is beautiful, the center petals and your choice of fabric for them are perfect. Lovely piece. Carol
Thanks, Carol! And best wishes for your 2019!
Congratulations, Mary! You continue to inspire us!
Thanks! That one took long enough!
Congratulations! I will get a copy of the magazine.
Love the design and brightness. It is a happy quilt!
Thanks Gail. I haven’t forgotten about the binding trick, but as you see there’s a lot going on 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS!!!! This is a well deserved honor!
Yay you!! That’s so fun, isn’t it? The quilt is attractive and I do like the petal center. Congrats!
Thanks, Melanie 🙂
I’m so excited for you. Will check at the drug store to see if we get Quilty in Canada.
Congratulations, Mary! I’ll be looking for that magazine. I admire your creativity and industriousness
Thanks, Jean! I plan to retire the end of January and hope for more time to quilt 😉
Very cool! I saw that magazine on my last trip to Walmart, and almost picked it up, but said, “No! You have too many WIP as it is!!”
Now I have a good reason to go back to get it. 🙂
Very cool to be published!
Congratulations, Mary! How exciting to have another quilt published! I like the petals in the middle.
Hi, Katy! Good to hear from you, and thanks!

Woohoo! Always happy to see some of my favorite creators in print! I love the large petals in the center–glad you were able to go with that one when published. Super jog–Congratulations!
Congratulations on getting a pattern published! It is well deserved, your quilt is gorgeous!
