Introducing Aqua Oasis - American Patchwork and Quilting April 2021

 Who is ready for a little calm in their day?

Ahhhhhhh!!!!! There's just something about soft aqua and white that brings me back to the ocean. Which I visited many, many years ago. I should probably go back since it made such an impression.

You can find it in the April 2021 issue of Better Homes and Garden's American Patchwork and Quilting. It "hits stands" February 12! To see all of the patterns included you can visit here.

Aqua Oasis is a large block quilt that, while it may look difficult, comes together quickly. It's the perfect size for enjoying an evening on the beach, or if you live where I do, huddling under with your special someone... or cat.. or dog...or glass of wine.....

Psssst, did you know the "I sipped" wine/water glass is on sale through February 13th? Just incase you wanted to surprise your bestie, or needed a wine glass to snuggle with under your finished quilts. 😉

Quilting was done by Tracy Veglahn of Fabrics Plus in Marshall, MN. I love that we went with a simple pattern, but used the aqua thread. That's stepping out of my matchy, matchy comfort zone, even if it was a very, very light aqua thread.

Look for the April 2021 Patchwork and Quilting issue this Friday (February 12, 2021)!

Happy Stitching!
