Easy Quilts Magazine - Blueberry Swirl Quilt and Josephine Quilt

Easy Quilts Magazine - Blueberry Swirl Quilt and Josephine Quilt Hello everyone! Today I just wanted to share some news that blew our socks off. Over Christmas, we received an early copy of Easy Quilts Spring 2014. Kimberly quickly snapped a photo of the issue and texted it to me. I simply replied, “Whaaaaaatttttttt.”

Easy Quilts Magazine Spring 2014 Fons & Porter

Because.
One of our quilts.
Is on the cover.

Blueberry Swirl quilt pattern by Jocelyn Ueng in Easy Quilts Magazine

Yesssss!!!!! I’m so excited!!!!! I am a lover of blues, and so is Cheryl Cohorn, who made this quilt. Naturally we think this quilt is a hit. I guess the folks at Fons & Porter agree!

Blueberry Swirl Quilt in Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts Magazine 2014

The fabric used is Nature’s Basket by Blackbird Designs, and Diane Selman quilted this for us with a lovely swooping leaf motif. Fons & Porter has Blueberry Swirl quilt kits available, if you want to make one for yourself!


Oh – but it doesn’t end there! Sitting pretty on page 92 was Kimberly’s darling Josephine quilt! Yep, more blue, but with a healthy dose of light gray! These floating stars and sweet little nine-patches are simply perfection. The fabric is Maison Bleue by Robyn Pandolph, and the quilt was made by Tricia Poolson and quilted by Karolyn Jensen. We have kits available for the Josephine Quilt!

What are your thoughts? How would you style these quilt to make it you?

I can't wait for my Easy Quilts subscription to begin with this issue. These quilts are just lovely! Kimberly, I can't keep up with all the great patterns and color ideas you and your staff come up with. Love these blue quilts.

Oh and congratulations on another cover quilt!

I am thinking that the French General red, grey and cream might be stunning for Josephine. Kimberly, it is stunning.

Beautiful Quilts! Congrats!

I wonder when my subscription will arrive. The world can never have enough blue and white quilts. I am thinking the 2 block quilt on the cover would also be lovely in soft yellows and cream for spring.

Both stunning quilts. I would like to see Josephine in red, pinks and grey.

Congratulations! Your quilts keep getting better and better. Both of these are beautiful -- I especially love the subtle colors in the Josephine quilt :-)

Beautiful quilts. I have always loved blue. Is the pattern for the blueberry swirls kit available or only with the kit? I'd love to have the pattern.
