Quilt Now Issue 2

Some excellent mail arrived yesterday - Quilt Now Issue 2. 

 And look what is inside! Something completely different for me. A quilt made entirely of solids. I used Moda Bella Solids (Platinum, Bright Turquoise, Kiwi, nautical Blue and White) which were a dream to sew with. There is also an insane amount of quilting on it, which is also something different for me. Each of the four colour sections is bubble quilted in a matching colour. It was nice to be out of my comfort zone and trying something new. I can see more quilts using solids in my future.
Katy has done an amazing job with Quilt Now, if you haven't seen a copy I highly recommend checking it out. It's a great mix of patterns, information and inspiration!

Love it. It reminds me of playing the game "Pong" on one of the first gaming units ever. The movement of the ball was sort of slow and exaggerated and it's like you could see the movement. To me your quilt has movement and I love the colors.

Love the colours, I had fun with solids the other day and it makes a nice change, as well as so many incredible colours to choose from. Love the quilt, reminds me of pacman game. Ive never seen this magazine :/
