I'm a Cover Girl!

 Have you seen the current issue of Love of Quilting? That’s my quilt, “Star Surround,” on the cover. It’s the first time I’ve made the cover of Love of Quilting and I’m very excited!

Fons & Porter Love of Quilting July/August 2015

The theme of the issue is traditional star designs, so my star block and pinwheel design fit right in. I designed this as a Quilt of Valor using the red, white, and blue fabrics from my Summer Cottage line. I like the way the stars sparkle against the white background, don’t you?

"Star Surround"

I’m proud to support the Quilts of Valor Foundation and encourage you to consider participating as well. These large quilt blocks come together easily and make a generous 68” x 88” quilt. You can find the full instructions in the magazine or order a kit here.
