Have any of you heard of a little magazine called American Patchwork and Quilting?
I kinda thought so.
Well, I am honored to be a part of their ohsofun quilt along this year! Last year I followed along as hundreds, probably thousands of you made Lissa’s “Tone It Down!” quilt, and was jealous that I couldn’t drop everything and join right in too! (It’s still on my bucket list of somedays…)
This year, the brilliant folks at American Patchwork and Quilting noticed a trend, and decided to jump on it! Four patches are making a comeback in a BIG way, and that’s what this year’s #apqQuiltalong is all about!
Choose one of three quilts to make (or make all three!), found in the April 2015 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting–on newsstands February 3rd.
Buried Treasure by April Rosenthal (That’s me!)
Rainbow Rows by THE Lissa Alexander
Scraptacular by the lovely Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts
There are a bunch of spectacular quilters playing along with us, and you’ll want to follow their progress too! Here are just a few of them:
Share your progress with all of us via social media with the #apqQuiltalong hashtag! Be sure to tag me (@amrosenthal on IG and Prairie Grass Patterns on Facebook) if you decide to make my quilt, Buried Treasure, so I’m sure to see it!
If you need a little inspiration, check out Lissa’s Pinterest board where we will be pinning as many pictures as we can find of YOUR quilts!
So, go FOUR it! I want to see what you make!
