Extra, extra, read all about it!

I have been positively aching to share this news with you all for a while now, but somehow, I managed to keep it in.  In your travels today, keep an eye out on your local newsstands...because you might just see one of my quilts there!!


My infamous spiderweb quilt is on the cover of the 2011/2012 issue of International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene magazine!  After many months of uncertainty and secret-keeping, I am so happy to share this with you today, though the experience has rendered me a little bit speechless, so forgive me if I'm a bit less wordy than usual...


I had to pinch myself when I first saw the preview of the magazine online - really, could it be?  My name in print?  My quilt, lying on top of one of Elizabeth Hartman's creations??  Seriously?????


It wasn't until I had a copy in my hands late yesterday afternoon that it started to really feel real.  I'm officially a published author.  Something I dreamed of being since I was a little girl.

Look there's my name under the Quilts section!

It's just positively unreal, and I cannot say thank you enough to all of you who follow my blog and encourage me in all of my quilty endeavors.


And thank you to the amazing ladies of the {Sew} Beautiful Bee for helping me make this fabulous quilt.  You girls rock!!!


Now what are you waiting for???  Go get a copy!!!  :)  You can pick up a copy at Pink Chalk Fabrics, Interweave, eQuilter, and other various retailers, including possibly your local bookstore or fabric store.

  5. I bought this at Barnes and Noble yesterday on impulse, and flipped through it quickly in the car and when I saw this pattern I told my husband "this pattern right here was worth the price of the magazine." Then I saw who made it and I was like, "I read her blog!!!"

    <----I'm a dork, I know.

    I DEFINITELY need to make that quilt. Soon!
