Chicopee Square Quilt

I’ve got another magazine quilt pattern out there! This is “Chicopee Square,” and on newsstands now in the April/May issue of Quilt Magazine (and now for sale as a stand-alone pattern – click here to purchase).

Cathedral Square quilt

You might remember my Cathedral Square block, which originally appeared in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks special issue. Same design, new fabric—and a lot more of the blocks. : )

Chicopee Square Quilt in Quilt Magazine

I think the design translates well to Denyse Schmidt’s Chicopee line. I love the rich, bold colors in this line! The plaids are some of my favorite prints in the line, and think they serve really well here as neutral frames for the bright, fun four-patches.
Chicopee Square Quilt
This quilt was quilted for my by Cindy Fenske, who is a fellow member of the Milwaukee Modern Quilt Guild. She came up with the fabulous quilting design, which included swirls in the negative space and a fun vintage-y pansy in the middle of each four-patch.
So pick up a copy of Quilt magazine—I found one at Barnes & Noble. This issue focuses on color, so there are lots of bright patterns to peruse, including a six-pointed star pattern. Enjoy!

    another Beauty — I saw this mag the other day when I was out but was in a rush and didn't have time to stop and look but now I will definatly be picking it up. I got the other magazine and a member of my guild was loving all the patterns in the issue so I had to get her one. We both added your design to our to do list.

    I've missed reading your blog since we were out of town, but as usual when I return you don't disappoint! I really think that Chicopee Square Quilt is a stunner, and esp. in the fabrics you've chosen. Agree on the quilting–I always like quilting that enhances a design, rather than overwhelms it.

    I've read through a few of your other posts–congrats, once again–for having a quilt accepted at QuiltCon and I hope you have a great time!
