QuiltCon Magazine, Featuring Cropping and Scale / by Riane Menardi

I wrote an article for QuiltCon Magazine about using cropping and scale to create modern quilt designs. I got my copy at QuiltCon, and it turned out so great — this is some of my favorite work, and the work I'm most proud of. The premise is simple: Take a traditional quilt block and "zoom in" on a portion of it. Crop away the rest, and use what's left to design a large-scale quilt. Easy! I'm currently making a few quilts using this technique, so stay tuned for photos and patterns.

In the meantime, grab a copy of QuiltCon Magazine if you're interested in learning more. The magazine hits newsstands this week, but you can also purchase it online here or here
