Pixel Play: 15 Quilt Projects for Kids, Family & Home
Pixel Play — set to be release in August 2012 — is a collection of patterns perfect for families and kids — from the family room, to the bedroom to the nursery — for boys and girls, both young and young at heart. We start with whimsy, fun and color and go from there. Like pirates and treasure maps? Pixel Play’s got ’em. Into planes, trains, automobiles? Pixel Play has a place for them to go to town, so to speak. But I don’t want to spoil all of it — discovering is half the fun, right?
This book has been in the works since before Quilt Remix was released. Baby Liam would snuggle up while Maeve was at school and he’d watch in wonder as pictures came together before his eyes. Sewing started shortly after the move and Liam was quite distressed when his favorite of the projects went into a box.
The quilt above is The Favorite. So much so that when the boxes came back from photographing, he immediately knew what was in them. He searched through the piles of quilts to find “his” quilt. He then hauled it down the hallway to his room and put it on his bed. It’s still there. While I usually keep the work quilts separate from the home quilts, I couldn’t bring myself to take this one away from him. After all, he was the recipient of the original crib-sized design — his birthday quilt when he turned three (mentioned, but no picture).
I’ll share more closer to the release date (August 2012), but get your stack of Konas ready ’cause it’s gonna be fun.
It’s available for pre-order on Amazon if you’re really itching to get started.
