an Anna Maria Horner Rubik’s Crush quilt

Thank you all so much for all the great comments on my last Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush quilt. When the Innocent Crush line came out, I bought fat quarters of the whole line, and ended up using them in their separate color palettes for two quilts. And now I’m happy to be able to show you the second quilt — this one made out of the Swept Away palette of the Innocent Crush line.

I started this one last Fall, and showed you all the quilt top surrounded by some lovely fall leaves (wow, that seems like a long time ago!). Then I got it all finished up and snapped a few photos at the very end of last year, just before mailing it off to the great people at Interweave.

And I’m so very pleased to tell you that you’ll soon be able to see this one in an upcoming magazine, published by Interweave, called 101 Patchwork Projects. It’s a super-sized magazine filled with patchwork projects, both big and small. And you’ll be able to find instructions for making your own Rubik’s Crush quilt, should you like this design!

For the backing of this one, I used this great orange print from the same line (which also happens to be the same print I used for the backing of the Rectangle Squared quilt – apparently it’s a favorite of mine!). I didn’t correctly calculate how much I’d need, so ended up piecing in some of the leftover prints from the front. The binding is a chocolate brown solid.

I’m totally excited to see this one in print, so I’ll be hanging around the bookstores waiting to see a copy. It’s due out in mid April!

    Beautiful! I love how you left some larger squares of fabric, Anna Maria’s fabrics are so stunning that it’s really nice to be able to see them in larger scale. So exciting that it will be in a magazine, congrats!

    I absolutely adore the picture with the barn in the shot. So lovely! Congrats on getting in print again. Sounds like a cool issue.

    Oh, my, I love this one! Such elegant lines, so many possibilities, although I would love to make it in the Innocent Crush fabric. Come April, I’ll be looking for the 101 Patchwork Patterns. But I don’t have to wait until April to buy the fabric!

    Great pattern, and it looks wonderful in those fabrics!

    I love the way the rubik’s cube blocks are all at different positions within the sashing! Just the kind of wonkiness I can cope with.

    I’m happy to see that even you can miscalculate something. *S* Makes me feel better.

    Oh, I’m so in love with this quilt. Remind us when the magazine comes out! (I’m sure you will!)

    Oh, just in case we wanted to go ahead and order our fabric to be just like you :) can you give us a sneak peek of what we need? A fat quarter bundle of Innocent Crush in Petal, obviously. Some solids in white or cream (how much?). And how much backing if we wanted to do it solid like your original intent?

    I love your Rubik’s Crush pattern!! My son would die for this in some boyish colours….hmmm. I am really looking forward to the 101 mag coming out.

    I love the offset of the smaller squares. This is something I would love to try. I will look for the issue in April. Congratulations!

    I absolutely LOVE it! I can’t wait for the magazine and your pattern!! I’m finishing up a imitation of the quilt you made with Laurie Wisbrun’s original Urban Zoo and have vowed never again to try a quilt without a pattern.

    Is it sad that I appreciate the loveliness of that quilt as much as the visions of grass?!? This is really lovely!

    Congratulations on another published pattern! I love this pattern (well, really I love all your patterns). I have to admitt that I didn’t immediately love the Innocent Crush line, but now after seeing it in some of your beautiful quilts, I’m head over heals with it.

    This really is fantaaaaastic. My favorite part is how you placed the little squares off center within the white blocks. It deserves to be in a publication from Interweave. I am impressed ( and that is hard to do after all the beautiful quilts you have shown us before this one).

    i love a quilt that includes simple large pieces of fabrics to showcase them – this is a great mix of that and then the small squares which are more about piecing and THAT look – love it, perfect combo! and i got here because a friend made a quilt inspired by this, which i was then inspired by…so your Rubik’s quilt has a cousin in California and a second cousin (table runner) in Colorado (: (sheesh, that is onelongbad sentence!!) (:

    p.s. i think your miscalculation was serendipitous, cuz the back is way more awesome/interesting/fun with the pieced part than it would’ve been otherwise!
