Apples & Oranges: Generation Q

The latest issue of Generation Q came out this Tuesday, so of course I ran all over town searching for a copy on newsstands. I was excited because this issue features one of my designs, Apples and Oranges, and now I finally get to share it with all of you!

CaseyYork_ApplesAndOranges_GenerationQ2014I’m so thrilled with the styled shot that they took for the magazine. I always have such a hard time shooting my quilts–all that white makes it difficult to get images that show any texture and don’t look washed out. But Gen Q’s photographers and stylists did a fantastic job.

CaseyYork_ApplesAndOrangeBack_GenerationQ2014I was equally surprised and delighted to see that they even included a picture of the back of the quilt, where I had a little fun with some extra leftover applique fabric. Like several of my latest quilts, this one features Oakshott Cottons for the appliqués–actually, this was the quilt that first caused me to contact Michael and got the ball rolling. I’m so glad it did, because the colors were just what I was looking for.

GenerationQ_May-June2014The current (May/June) issue of Generation Q is in stores now, and it’s a great one. In addition to many more excellent patterns, they have a rundown of different spray starches and alternatives, a section on teaching kids to sew, and a fantastic profile of Libs Elliot, who uses an open source computer program to design her amazing abstract quilts. Now that spring has finally sprung for most of us, it’s just the thing to bring with for some outdoor reading in the sun!

  1. I’m seriously in love with all your quilts. I think it’s an addiction or something. Anyway, it’s making it hard for me to find new ways to say “I love it” without sounding artificial! But I do really love this quilt, girl :)

  2. Congrats!!! It’s a great quilt and looks like they did do a good job styling. I know what you mean about trying to get good quilt photos. It’s not as easy as it seems.

  3. I adore the whimsical design and your color combinations. What a thrill it must be to see your creations in publications!
