Free Pattern - "Color of My Heart"

This adorable little quilt uses a Charm Pack of solids, but how cute would it be if you made it out of your stash of 2 1/2" squares?

TQS Zoom Quilt: "Doodle Bird 2" by Joanie Zeier Poole and Pam Levenhagen

The TQS Zoom Quilt this week is Doodle Bird 2 by Joanie Zeier Poole and Pam Levenhagen.  It's the third quilt created by these two friends.  Pam created the central panel from her original painting.  Joanie assembled the top and brought it to life with her imaginative quilting designs, that fill each tiny space using hand-guided free-motion quilting on her domestic machine. Doodle Bird 2 won 2nd place at AQS Lancaster 2015, Wall Quilts – 1st Entry.

Star Members can watch Joanie in Machine Quilting Magic, Episode 509.

TQS Talks to Katy Jones, aka Quilt Monkey, at QuiltCon 2015

Katy Jones, aka Quilt Monkey,  is a British quilter and blogger who first started quilting in 2008 with the gentle encouragement of a friend. Her first quilt was somewhat of a disaster, since she made it up as she went along and hoped for the best. Since then Katy has improved her technique and co-founded the  digital quilting eMagazine Fat Quarterly. She regularly teaches patchwork and quilting workshops, which is where TQS caught up with her, at QuiltCon.
