Second Chance

You might have remembered this quilt. It is an Irish Chain variation that I made a couple of years ago using scraps from our first two Moda Fabric collections - Nantucket, and Coming Home. I actually made two of them - one for Polly and one for myself. It wasn't an original design. I got the pattern from an issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. The article featured an antique quilt owned by Julie Hendrickson and American Patchwork & Quilting designed the pattern by studying this quilt.

When I posted this quilt on the blog while writing about hand quilting, we got many requests for the pattern. I gave the info on the magazine issue, but it soon sold out.

Now, to the good part......American Patchwork & Quilting has reprinted the pattern in their new bookazine - Sew Scrappy. This issue is on the newsstand right now. It's your chance to get the pattern. Good luck!!

I love that quilt. I remember the antique one from the magazine. It's wonderful made up in all your wonderful red/white and blues.

I knew I should have bought this issue when I saw it on the shelf the other day. Back to the store I go.

I have the magazine-saw the quilt-and thought to myself-"that looks just like Laurie's quilt!" It's nice to know I'm right! Love the quilt! Actually, I think it's the one I made for one of our grandson's who also loves it.

What a coincidence! I have been looking for the magazine and just purchased it today in Nova Scotia! The quilt is beautiful and must have been a challenge to make...and you made two of them! Wow!
