I’m a COVER GIRL!
I tried to find a larger digital image, but this was the only one I found….
But still – it’s my FIRST Quiltmaker Cover!
This past New Years, I taught this quilt, Wanderlust, as a mystery at Fabric Fanatics in Plano, Texas.
My students had to pinkie-swear that they would keep their quilts to themselves until the quilt appeared in the magazine –
Guess what, girls? You can now blog and twitter and facebook and instagram and flickr about your Wanderlust quilts all you want! Whoowhooo!
Oh, by the way, you may recognize this block as “Jelly Bean Blast” from 100 blocks by 100 designers, volume 7. I loved this block and couldn't wait to get it into a real quilt!
I used batiks, recycled neutrals, print neutrals and a whole bunch of a black tone on tone to make those colors sing.
As soon as the issues show up on my doorstep, I’ll be having a giveaway for this issue! In the mean time, be watching for it at a news stand near you within the next couple of weeks--
I’m on my way home this morning, flying from Boise to Chicago to Greensboro ---my own bed will be waiting for me tonight.
Bye bye, Idaho – it’s been a great holiday weekend!
Time making memories at mom’s little house in the mountains – priceless!
