From My Magazine Days, Day Five
Last day with this magazine issue from early 2007. Quilt Magazine #73 surprised me with all it contained of mine! You can bet that helped pay down the college loans that we had for our 3 daughters.
Page 82: Chain of Squares is based on a vintage block called Asian Mosaic, but it is sewn in rows, so it's hard to see the block.
|Chain of Squares: 64" x 64"|
Here are the two different colored blocks:

She made the cover (for which I was paid a generous bonus; no other magazine gave me anything for making their covers!). Here she is both as shown in the magazine on page 54:
|Galaxy of Stars quilt: 80" x 80"|
And as seen flat against a wall:

The center block (Woven Star) is a whopping 24" x 24". There are twelve 12" star blocks and the four corner stars are 6". I've had many happy students (and bloggers) who've made the blocks and quilts!
Here are Maureen's blocks with a light background:

And Marie T.'s blocks in process:

Hope you enjoyed seeing some articles and quilts from the days when quilt magazines were THE way to be inspired. I still love a good quilt magazine, don't you?
