Look what hit newsstands this week!!!
This beauty is featured in the Spring 2013 issue of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting - Easy Quilts.
They are calling it Pirate's Compass and the image in the magazine is just perfect!
Here are some larger shots I took of the quilt here at home.
The back has fun, bold, graphic blocks of the red skull print and the blue tossed ships print. I used bamboo quilt batting for the first time on this one and it made such a soft, warm quilt. I love it. As soon as I got it back from the magazine photo shoot, I curled up with it in my comfy chair.
I am so happy with how the finished product turned out. I had to make this one really quickly during the time I was running around like a crazy person making quilts and accessories for Quilt Market. I got this one done first and sent it off before I had a chance to admire it.
The pattern is available for you in the magazine. Pick it up if you get a chance. There are also a lot of other fun projects in there for you.
This is the cover of the issue in case you are looking for it in your local store.
