I can finally tell you about the really exciting opportunity that I received several months ago!
You have to go check out the July/August 2007 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine. And no, if you go look — I didn’t have anything to do with the really cute puppy pillow on the front cover….but I wish I did, because it’s darling….
Originally, the editor had asked to review my book — which was a thrill in and of itself — and then! They asked me to quilt one of the quilts appearing in this issue — it is a fabulous quilt called Jupiter Burning. The quilting design is one of the newest Meandering Magic variations from my second book.
There is also a second quilt (called Starry Path) that was quilted by someone else, but was quilted using a variation from the first book (Holly and Ribbons).
The editor I had been working with was at MQS, and I got to meet her (hi June!). She handed me a fresh-off-the-presses copy of the magazine. I was so excited to get it — the review of the books, and the explanation fo the technique was wonderfully done. It’s almost embarrassing how kind they were.
This issue is just now starting to show up in subscriber’s mailboxes, and should be in stores soon. I can’t wait to go to the bookstore and see it in the store!
Have got about a zillion things to do today before heading up to the Minnesota Quilt Show…better get going….
