Meadow Falls Quilt in Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine

I’m very excited to share my Meadow Falls quilt that has just been published in Love Patchwork & Quilting Issue 70.

Meadow Falls Quilt by Jo Westfoot for Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine  Issue 70

Issue 70 is jam packed full of fabulous linear designs. The one I designed comes together really quickly and looks modern too. You can buy the magazine from W H Smiths and other newsagents and some supermarkets in the UK.

I used the Flower Child range of fabrics by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics. The fabric is a beautiful quality and the colours were really vibrant.

And here it is hanging on the front of my garage!

I just love this range of fabric designed by Shayla Wolf of Sassafras Lane for Windham Fabrics.  The range is called Foundation and there is a perfect rainbow spectrum available.  I used it for my Create Every Day Mini Quilt.

I love how this one makes it look like a cityscape view!

Rainbow Hexies Cushion Re-make!

So back in 2011 I made a Rainbow Cushion.  I was fairly new to my sewing and quilting life back then.  But I loved that cushion!!! Fast forward 6 years and it was starting to look a bit dogeared and tatty so I decided to make another version of it, using all the skills I had learnt over the last 6 years!

So here they are side by side.  I definitely prefer the new one lol.  Have you ever re-made something?  What did you learn about yourself?  

This one has been featured in this month's Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine (Issue 55) and will be demonstrated and sold as a kit on the Sewing Quarter TV Channel on the 6th December.  I was so excited to see it on the cover!!!
