Spinning Wheel Quilt

Spinning Wheel Cover AQ

A few weeks ago when I showed an image of my Spinning Wheel Quilt on the cover of American Quilter, I warned that I would probably have to post again when I had the magazine in my hands.  I have a copy now…and, well, here I go again.  It’s just that I am very excited!

American Quilter did a great job with the magazine.  All the quilts have very complete directions.  There is even a coloring page included for my quilt pattern–look for it toward the front of the magazine.

There are four shots of my quilt included in the magazine which really give you a feel for the quilt.  The only thing that was omitted, was a list of the fabrics that I used. I want to include those here in case you’d like to use the same fabrics.

I used Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements in Mirage Blue, Cozumel Blue, Tile Blue, Mystic Grey, Ash, Moonstone, and Snow.

You can purchase these fabrics at the Fat Quarter Shop or as a kit at Sew Me A Song.

Of course, I look forward to seeing the quilt made in other fabric combinations too! For fun I made a few layouts in different fabrics. See how different it looks in Lizzy House’s Constellations?

If you make a Spinning Wheel Quilt, please share a picture with me in my During Quiet Time Flickr Group.

American Quilter will start showing up in your local quilting stores at the beginning of August. Subscribers’ copies are in the mail!

    This is the second time today that I have read about this quilt, and what a beauty it is. I am going to try and track down this magazine , no one here in Australia seems to have the American Quilter magazine. Oh well, I’ll keep looking. This quilt is in my future I just know. Congrats again on such a beautiful quilt.

    • AQ can be shipped overseas (with an extra fee), but there’s also a digital version available for ipad users (no extra fee!). Android is in the works but not available just yet!

  21. This is a lovely quilt, and it looks fantastic on the cover. In fact, my mom has fallen in love with it and it’s next on her list of quilts to make. Just have to finish a baby quilt that’s “due” this weekend!

  22. I just love that quilt and have big plans to make a small version for a new baby friend of mine. 🙂

    The quilting and shots are gorgeous!

  23. I’m working on it. I have 4 blocks done. I know…..it doesn’t sound like much, but with as busy as I’ve been, I’m feeling really proud of that!
