Quilting Celebrations Magazine

I had a weekend trip planned, but something came up, so that means switching gears and...extra sewing time for me.  My first thoughts were, "Let's go to the store, there's a magazine I want!"

"Yes!...I have my Quilting Celebrations by Patrick Lose."  
Such great projects!

Oh, which pattern should I try first?
Spooky Silhouettes or
Easy as 1-2-3 Candle Mat or
maybe, the Seasonal Splendor table topper?

Patrick....CONGRATULATIONS!  It's a beautiful magazine!

Mini Candle Mat, from Page 25.
Golden Delicious?

I placed a few of the leaves differently than the pattern, that was due to this background fabric.

The back...
Now, to make a coordinating mat.

Here it is, something for the end-table.
Using the leaf applique from the magazine.

You know, now that I'm looking at this,
I think it needs more...
I'll be back!

Ready to mail!


  1. Thanks very, much, Jes :) I was just in the grocery store and saw it there...great fun!

    I'm so glad you like it.

    On another note...I'm so envious of your 30-something temperatures and CHILI and PUMPKIN PIE!!! Enjoy it and know how lucky you are.


  2. Patrick, I would have stood on boxes, holding the magazine and shouting, "This is ME", in the store!

    I am taking today to start a Quilting Celebration project!
    Got some good tunes playing in the sewing room...

    Let it rain all it wants today! Maybe tomorrow will be a beautiful day for photographing the Fall colors. Fingers crossed!

  3. A new magazine is always exciting. I haven't bought one in ages. Enjoy your sewing time and hope you have the beautiful weather needed for picture taking.

  4. Forgot to say, cute project too.

  5. Hi Kathy!
    Thought I could sit and watch Dancing with the Stars while hand-quilting this, but this season's cast is really, it slowed the sewing process!
    It's almost finished.
