Roundhouse is ready! (And Festival and sale!)

Pin It
If you're stopping by from the Blogger's Quilt Festival - Welcome!

I forgot that one could make two entries in to the festival, and so, Rendezvous was my first, and I decided this will be my second (since I got the pattern finished this weekend).

I blogged about this quilt before, so many of you have undoubtedly already seen it, but if not, here is my Roundhouse.

Roundhouse

This quilt is special to me for a few reasons.

1) It was my first ever magazine published quilt.
I work part-time as a pattern editor with American Quilter magazine, and happily, they liked this design of mine enough to publish it!

Aug/Sept American Quilter

2) It was my all Anna Maria spectrum quilt (a quilt on my bucket list, that I'd been wanting to make after meeting the lovely Mrs. Horner).

Roundhouse

It was so indulgent working with so many of her prints together!

AMH rainbow!

and 3) It lives on my couch and served as part of a fort today.

(I should have got a picture).

This is a wonderfully fun quilt to piece, whether you go scrappy or high contrast. (You can see more options of the design in my original post about it). The quilt uses a basic house-shaped piece and half-square triangles, without any Y-seams.

I even have an acrylic template available to make for easier cutting.

Love this quilt so much! I'm surprised the photos on flickr aren't 'worn out' since I've looked at them so often. I have the magazine, your template and two prints from Kate Spain's Sunnyside collection tucked in a special box. My sister is going to have a lovely surprise for her March birthday!
