Introducing Linked Within + The Quilter's Planner 2018

I am beyond thrilled to share with you Linked Within which will be included along with 12 other fabulous projects in the full-color glossy magazine accompanying The Quilter's Planner for 2018.

Linked Within includes two prints from the Sun Print 2017 collection by Alison Glass, featured designer for The 2018 Quilter's Planner.  More about these prints in this post.

Kitty did such a wonderful job photographing Linked Within in beautiful Maine.  Just look how well you can see the quilting detail in this shot.

And speaking of quilting...Johellen George of Cabin Quilt Studio did a fabulous job of custom quilting Linked Within.  This is the center where Johellen quilted a combination of swirls and pebbles.

Do you see how the two-color plus signs form the links?  It was so fun working on this design and I am so grateful to Stephanie for including Linked Within in the The Quilter's Planner for 2018!

  1. This is beautiful, Paige, and wow - plus signs for the win! I love the interlocking and overlapping effect and I thought it would be constructed much differently. :)

  2. This is beautiful! It took me a minute to see the plus signs. It's pretty neat the way they come together to make the intersections.

  3. Another beauty, Paige. The colors are lovelyl and work perfectly here. Spectacular quilting, too!

  4. Wow, this quilt is beautiful and to have it photographed at location just as beautiful as the quilt--how lucky can one quilter be.

  5. You know I love this quilt and the photographs are spectacular. Thanks for the photos of the fabric and the quilting - also awesome!

  6. Oh I love that quilt! So simple but stunning. I've been dying to see the patterns in the planner, so thanks for showing one of them! Kitty is such an amazing photographer, I'm taking a class with her next year in QuiltCon and I'm excited!

  7. I don't know how you keep doing it, but you're great at designing quilts! There are maybe a half-dozen quilt designers whose creations I really love, and you're one of them. The colors, and the design of this one are the perfect duo. I'm not a write-it-down, need-a-plan sort of person so the planner doesn't make sense for me, but I'll happily admire this one through the photos you've shared. Just lovely!

  8. Congratulations Paige! Lovely quilt and spectacularly photographed. Makes me want to visit Maine. LOL

  9. It is a beautiful quilt, with chic quilting that complements the pattern perfectly. Congratulations on the inclusion in the Planner 2018. But I am not surprised. It is a worthy pattern from a talented designer. Kudos to you.

  10. Wow that quilting! Congratulations on being included in the Planner. I'm hoping I'll win one sometime in the next few months ;-). I think you've covered every variation of the plus sign now!

  11. Beautiful quilt and pictures! Congratulations on having your quilt in the planner Paige. A lot of exciting news over here !

  12. That is a lovely modern quilt. The photography is stunning indeed. Thank you for sharing this quilting planner apetizer with us. =)

  13. This is a wonderful design. Congratulations.
