We live in a rural area and one of the barns I pass on the way to town has a quilt block on the end, where it is easily visible as you come around a big curve.I enjoy seeing the “quilt trail” quilts wherever I encounter them, though sometimes they look like something nobody in her right mind would make out of cloth.
This one is different. Its relatively simple design has a striking visual impact and it is something a person COULD make from cloth!.I thought it would make a good wall hanging or an unusual center for a medallion-style quilt. Because of that, I drew it out in Electric Quilt. (I’ve been an EQ user since EQ5, and am now on EQ8!)
I submitted the design to a publishing group for a magazine, where it was accepted. Then there were changes in publishing world and nothing happened for several months. Eventually Eileen Fowler at McCall’s Quilting made a design of her own, giving me credit for inspiration. It’s in the July/August 2020 issue of McCall’s Quilting, page 35. Her quilt is lovely and easy! Check it out!
And Melanie, please note that McCall’s Quilting was very ethical. I probably wouldn’t have recognized Eileen’s quilt as based on mine, but they asked permission and gave credit. It’s always nice when that happens.
