Today we want to give you a sneak peek of a project that we are so excited about - and that will be released on Friday! The story starts in Minneapolis last May at Quilt Market. Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Co. – an amazing store that is just an hour away from us in Kansas City – stopped by our booth, and started looking at our book Dimensional Denim. Jenny, who is world famous for her quilt tutorial videos, suggested that Amy join her on a tutorial and they make a quilt using the Strip N' Stitch technique from Dimensional Denim.
Of course, Amy was thrilled to partner with Jenny, and got to work at once designing the quilt. Here are some pictures of the quilt in progress - you will have to wait for the release of the tutorial on Friday to see the final product!
During the design process we experimented with different stitches in the middle of the strip. We started with the idea of making the teal and eggplant pillow design that was featured in the book into a tablemat. Then we played with our new 12 weight Crossroads thread on the Teal and Eggplant Denim pillow that we made. I love how the stitching, especially the variegated, really pops off the strips!
Read more about Missouri Star Quilt Co. over on Amy's blog. And, pick up your own copy of Dimensional Denim (and some Crossroads Denim, available at Missouri Star) so you can sew along with Amy and Jenny on Friday!
