Mark Lipinski



Simply shimmering color. Delight your eyes with a rainbow of reflected color with Mark Lipinski's Crystals quilt, featured in the January/February 2008 issue of Quilter's Home magazine. Download the foundation templates and get started on your own gorgeous Crystals quilt today. See the January/February 2008 issue for complete instructions
(this was taken straight from his webpage: http://www.quiltershomemag.com/freepattern/ )

Yep...Mark Lipinski is all the rage around the quilty blogland lately. So, like Kristie (http://quiltingcowgirl.blogspot.com/) I had to find out what all the hurrah was about. I found this: http://www.marklipinski.com/ and http://www.quiltershomemag.com/freepattern/ These are not your Grandmother's quilts. And not to put our Grandmother's down in any way...these are so cool. Who would not want a quilt that looks like that one? I do. I wanna make that one. If his magazine has more of this in it...I'll have to buy a subscription. This could be the start of something big!

I'm going back to my sewing room now since I've been seriously inspired. I may actually finish something quilty soon. Also, like Kristie, the quilt tops are starting to stack up.....

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend....

I love Mark Lipinski's sense of humor, magazine, fabric line and quilts! The mag is worth the money and if you are not a member of his "posse" consider joining us at Yahoo on the Pickle Road chat group. We would love to have you!

After seeing that wonderful pic, I had to check the site for myself. I SOOOOOO love the colours in that quilt and will see if I can get my hands on a copy of the mag for a future project.

He is hoot! Met him in Houston last year where he was sitting at his booth, or maybe it was the Quiltmaker booth ( don't they put out his magazine? ) He is so much fun! His writing is just exactly as he is...

I love the magazine, too, and read it from cover to cover. I'm also so tired of winter and anything that comes with it. Where is spring?
