Irish Twist in Love Patchwork and Quilting / Beauties Pageant 173

If you didn’t receive a 2021 holiday card from me, please do not take offense—I didn’t send any!—because back in December of last year, I was busy sewing a little bit of sunshine that I’m finally able to share.

Here you see Irish Twist, a bold and beautiful remix of the traditional Irish chain quilt block. Made up in an array of Bella Solids and quilted to perfection by Narda Junda, of Maz Q’s Sewing and Quilting Studio, it’s a quick project to usher in the summer.

EDIT: The pattern, originally published in Issue 111 of Love Patchwork and Quilting, is now available in my Etsy shop!
The pattern for my Irish Twist quilt and the accompanying pillow appears in Issue 111 of Love Patchwork and Quilting—available now! Click here to go to the Love Patchwork and Quilting website, where you can buy a printed magazine, digital version, or subscription.

See? I had a good reason for skipping items on my holiday to-do list! What can I say now other than … Merry belated Christmas? Happy not-so-new year? Perhaps it would be best to cover my bases and wish you happy holidays 2022—ha!

This was my first go at submitting to a magazine. (Hmmm ... Is that accurate? Maybe I submitted to one of the past QuiltCon magazines? I can’t recall.) If you’re interested in working with a magazine and would like more information, let me know and I’ll write a future blog post about my experience.
