Are You “On Track!”?? ((Give-Away!))

I got home after 9pm last night --- falling into bed about 9:30pm and sleeping through the night until 7:30am! I think I needed it.

Travel might have you just sitting there while someone ELSE does the driving, or the flying, but it is just exhausting! And yes, I worked on hexagons. I haven’t shown a picture of progress for a while, so I’ll have to get that out and show you how far that border section has come.

This morning I looked at a HUGE stack of mail that had accumulated on the kitchen counter while I’ve been gone, and there was one big envelope I’d been waiting for!

I have a featured article in “ON TRACK!”, the official magazine of the International Machine Quilters Association.

Membership in IMQA includes the informative longarm quilter's magazine ON TRACK! 4 (four) times a year, optional business listing on the IMQA web site, discounted quilt entry fees for Machine Quilters Showcase (MQS®), discount cards for supply purchases and regional group support.

Within this publication you can find some of the most beautifully machine quilted quilts imaginable --- interviews from well known long arm quilters, tools, techniques and tips to help you hone your quilting skills.

ontrack

I have THREE extra copies to offer as a Give-Away! If you’d like to win a copy of On Track Magazine, Winter 2012 issue --- just leave me a comment below!

Remember if you are commenting without a blogger-visible email address or as "anonymous" that you need to leave me your name and your email address so I have a way to contact you.

All I'm asking is that if you leave a comment, you tell one friend ((Or one group of friends)) by passing on the link to this post so they can enter too! Feel free to post this give-away link to your fb friends, email lists, message boards, wherever quilters gather ---get the word out and let the fun begin!

fortmeyersFL2012 304

We’ll draw the winners on Friday morning.

Remember that this coming SATURDAY is the first Saturday in MARCH!, which means it’s Yard Sale Saturday! Be getting those items that you want to sell ready, write your post, and be ready to come link it to mine. Mine will go live at 7am Eastern time.

The rest of today for me? Laundry is running! Book edits await, this huge stack of snail mail needs taken care of, there are book orders to mail out that have come in while I’ve been gone, and I’ve got to do things like make a bank run, and find myself a podiatrist ---

Can anyone relate to BUNION PAIN!? OH, is this ever going to slow me down Sad smile

And, yes, I can relate to bunion pain--my only regret is waiting so long before having them fixed--well worth the temporary pain and inconvenience!Sorry I didn't get a chance to slide a bit south and take a class this time.

  17. Hey Bonnie! I've just started renting time on a lang-arm, so I would love a copy of the magazine to educate me :-) I CAN relate to bunion pain, and the only thing I've ever found to help, is getting off it and putting that foot up for a while, maybe some ice, too! You have quite a list for today, just take it one thing at a time....

    Sure...please enter me in this drawing. It would be extra fun to have a copy of this issue, not only because you have an article in it, but because I've known the cover's featured quilter, Kristin Vierra, since she was a small child. I love how life winds around, especially in the quilting world.

  21. I hadn't heard of this magazine. I imagine it would be a wealth of information to me, a self-taught longarmer who needs to learn more skills! I had a bunionectomy a year ago--helped tremendously (no pain now) but it was a long recovery. Good luck with your bunion pain!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'd love to win the magazine and read your article.
    I will be interested to see what you find put about your bunion. I've had one for years and been told to wait as long as possible to have anything done to it because there can be serious problems. I'm getting to the point where I don't think it can wait much longer. Between the bunion and back problems I've had to give up jogging and my waistline has suffered. Gettingold is no fun ;-)

    Does this Int'l Machine Quilters Association only cater to long arm quilters? Or is this group (and magazine) also for those of us that use our home sewing machines to machine quilt?

    Bonnie, it would be nice to win the magazine but I'm writing to tell you about my bout of foot pain. Not as exciting but it may help. I had severe spurs on my heels. Next to surgery, which was not an option I was caring for, I tried an old remedy that my Mom told me about. So for two weeks, I soak my feet in the tub with Epsom salts in water as hot as I could stand. And I have not had another spur since and this was many years ago. So when my feet feel tired and achy, I do have bunions, I soak them for a day or two and gone. Just a suggestion. ninepatch@hotmail.com

  56. I'd love to win the magazine, and what a neat title. The one thing I learned about bunions is you have to wear really comfortable/ugly shoes.If you don't your feet will pay for it. I found Crocs a couple of years ago (like walking on a cloud) after starting to stand on my feet for 10 hours straight from my job. I had the bunion surgery when I was in my teens, The first month after the surgery is the worst. With your schedule I don't see how you can fit that kind of time in.

    You might have to get new footwear to accommodate the bunion until it settles down a bit. Hopefully the podiatrist will help you get the best fit for your feet.
    You have a brutal schedule try to get your feet up and take a breather.

But I'd also be interested in how you've gone from designing and making stuffed dolls/animals to traveling all over the country, teaching, designing, writing books about and making quilts. You have accomplished and are accomplishing so much. By the time I get through a day of work, I'm lucky to get supper on the table and read your column before I start falling asleep at the computer! You're amazing! Keep up the good work!

  119. I'll be certain to spread the word. I do even without the pull of winning! All 15 swappers have turned in their Chunky Churndashes; this week I'll be mixing them up and sending them out. Next up is Crabapple Swappin'. Had a great weekend with Part 7 Orca Bay. I should be assembling this week. Going to pick up the Bloc-Loc for flying geese to square up the pieces in Part 7. I used the Bloc-Loc to square up the pieces of the border...OH SO NICE. Good luck finding a good FOOTMAN. Sounds like your pain threshhold has reached it's max. :( Sandi
