I love working with Quiltmaker Magazine!
It’s been almost 10 years now, this relationship friendship with editors, designers, and folks who love quilts and are as excited about fabric and sewing stuff, just as we all are.
My journey with them has been an awesome partnership, and I’m excited to see it grow!
When they first proposed to me that I do an Addicted to Scraps column in every issue, I had no idea how big it would be, how much people would love it – it was just a simple idea based on the newspaper quilt patterns of old --
Here is a BLOCK PATTERN. No quilt pattern given – get your brain in gear and see what you can do with it!
I’ve got some wonderful gals working as part of the Scrap Addicts team, and they are working behind the scenes to create quilts in their own layouts and design based on the blocks presented in each column.
Now this is where YOU come in!
I am doing some taping of online workshops focused around my Addicted to Scraps column in August.
I am looking for quilts to be included in the gallery section of each episode. Would you consider allowing me to include your quilt for the world to see?
It would need to be to the offices in Golden by August 1st. Please let me know ASAP if you wish to participate! I would love to be able to share your quilt in my episode.
The quilts I am looking for correspond with the 6 Addicted to Scraps segments I am taping.
Moth in the Window
Mai Tais in Paradise
Wild & Goosey
What I am looking for is as much variety as possible –so if someone has sent a photo of a quilt, and yours is identical, I have to choose which one goes –I wish I could show them all, but I’m looking for VARIETY!
Please email me a photo of your quilt as soon as you can, and when they are all in –I’ll let you know by email where to send your quilt.
It will need to arrive by AUGUST FIRST!!
I’m not sure when the online tutorials will air, I’ll keep you updated.
I’m really EXCITED about this new venture with Quiltmaker!
