It’s always exciting to see your project appear in a magazine. Firstly, because there you are – in one of the magazines you know so well! It’s very gratifying, no doubt about it.
But secondly, given the lead times needed with traditional print and with making a quilt sample, quite often it’s 6-12 months since you’ve actually sent the quilt off to the magazine. So it’s lovely to see your creation again after so long, doubly so when you see it on your local news stand!
My project in Quilters Companion can be found in issue No. 83.
The quilt is called Star Crossed and has been made with Kona solids and some Elizabeth Hartman prints (Paintbox Basics). If you know me, you know how I love aqua, teal and turquoise, so this one was great fun to make.
Also in that issue of Quilters Companion – a project by Quilt Jane, Jane Davidson!
My project in Love Patchwork and Quilting can be found in issue No. 44.
The quilt is called Triangle Twist and is made with Rae Ritchie’s Foxtail Forest for Dear Stella. The navy and corals with accents of silver and taupe is certainly a winning combo in my eyes.
The lovely Angie Wilson of Gnome Angel has a regular column in Love Patchwork and Quilting, which is always a great read. And if you have sharp eyes, you’ll see that my good friend Peta Peace of She Quilts A Lot has a gorgeous heart-shaped mini quilt in this issue as well.
Speaking of Angie and Peta…not only are they both amazingly talented quilters, but they also both have books coming out later this year. If you think seeing your project in a magazine is exciting, imagine how adrenaline-inducing seeing your book in a book store could be!
Peta’s book is called A Piece of Cake and is due out in July.
Angie’s book is called Fussy Cutters Club and is due out in September.
