Bye Bye Summer

OK so when I finished up teaching back in early July I had every intention of starting up regularly blogging.  And then, well then, I decided to take the summer off!  It's been lovely to take a break.  I've still dipped my toe into social media.  But it was pretty obvious to me that I needed a good long break.

Quite a while ago I got to play with Sun Print 2017 fabric by Alison Glass.  I love a rainbow palette so I love all of Alison's fabric ranges!

Rainbow Tumbling Spools Quilt by Jo Westfoot Quilt Now Issue 39

I made this fun Rainbow Tumbling Spools Quilt.  It appeared in issue 39 of Quilt Now.  It features a column of thread spools that appear to be tumbling.

The words are then free motion quilted with a pebbles design.

Always so exciting to see my work in a magazine!  If you missed the magazine when it was out, you may be able to order back issues from them directly [I just checked and print copies are all sold out, but you can still get digital copies].  Alternatively you can wait until February 2018 when I'll be able to release the pattern :-)
