The Winter 2016 issue of Easy Quilts magazine just went on sale and we thought we’d share photos of some of the quilts inside with you today. This issue is so fun, packed with loads of fresh and fast quilt patterns.
Do you know anyone who likes their music old-school style, on vinyl records? Emily Bailey’s On Vinyl quilt is a large lap size, perfect for sofa snuggling. Just like your old records on the shelf, this quilt celebrates good times with a wild riot of hues and disc shapes made using simple stitch-and-flip corners. If you’re looking for quilts using fat quarters you’ve arrived! This one’s totally fat quarter friendly and so very scrap-happy.
Don’t Look Under the Tree by Wendy Sheppard arrives just in time for Christmas quilting 2016. At 34″ x 40″, it’s a perfect wall quilt. Make it using a variety of holiday-themed fat quarters. Strips, rectangles, squares and a Flying Geese unit make up each “package.” This would make a perfect seasonal hostess gift.
And if your next big quilt-making event is the arrival of a new baby, Sleepytime Turtles by Nancy Lacey is a simple but sweet baby quilt with pinwheel blocks, sashing and borders in soft prints. Our instructions help you craft those triangle-squares quickly and accurately. It all goes together so fast, you’ll have a beautiful keepsake quilt for a new baby in no time!
Those are just 3 of the wonderful original quilt designs in this great issue. If you don’t yet have a copy, instant digital and print versions of the magazine are available in our online shop.
