I got the latest issue of Cotton Time in the mail this weekend. For those of you that aren't familiar with Cotton Time, it is a quilting and sewing magazine from Japan. I order mine from Superbuzzy. The magazine is entirely in Japanese, but you can pretty much figure out how to make the items from their diagrams and your own sewing knowledge. I am completely obsessed with this magazine! I've been carrying this issue around with me all weekend, pouring over it! One of the projects I am going to make is the small quilt pictured above. Here's their diagram on how to make it:
It uses curved seams, which I've never done in quilting before. I love the scrappy chic look of it!
So that's it! I hope you have found Cotton Time as inspiring as I have! I've been working on a new pattern for you all, but have run in to technical difficulties. Once I get it all ironed out, I'll be posting it. Oh, and most importantly: I'm off to Spring Quilt Market on Thursday!! Thursday evening I will be at Sample Spree, so wish me luck!
