Well Jan had just returned from France where she was a guest teacher for Quiltmania. She had already seen issue no. 83 of Quiltmania. Guess what! There was my quilt. You can’t begin to believe the amount of time that passes from the date you complete your quilt to the date it is published. I feel as if I have sent one of my children off to boarding school and they finally have come home all grown up. Actually I had forgotten all about them having the quilt. Reminds me of when we forgot Travis at the baseball field.That is another story, he made it home safe and so will my quilt. Anyhow I was surprised and delighted!
The only change I would make is that you got to travel with your quilt when you sent it to France.
By the way Quiltmania magazine is available at quilt stores.
During the Memorial day weekend, I was perusing through the stack of books from Market. One of my new favs is Red White and Something Blue from That Patchwork Place. Those are 3 of my favorite colors along with brown, aqua, grey and on and on and on.
Then I come to this masterpiece! Just kidding! There was one of my quilts that McCall’s had published. The entire book is a collection of quilts from past issues. So if you missed it then now is your chance.
I couldn’t believe this quilt also featured French General fabrics. I didn’t know how l much loved working with this line.
And last but not least I got to drool over something else that was a year and a half in the making. I had a very small part in this but I know several people that worked very hard on making it all happen.Thank you to Angela, Susanne, Jenny, John, Natalia, Vanessa, Vickie, Rachel, Julie, Roslyn, Melissa, Amanda jean, Monica, Sweetwater, and Kimberly.
I am in the label crew and love it!
Love the labels!
Congratulations on the covers!!! How exciting!
Congratulations Lissa! Your new quilt is beautiful! 🙂
Congrats Lissa…I love both of your cover quilts…A P & Q…and Quiltmania! Think I might have to order some Sweetwater labels…I am so bad about attaching labels to my quilts! Thanks for the reminder that they sell them!
What a lovely gift from SWEETWATER hence their name they are the sweetest and not be outshadowed by their fabric either…sweet everything.
And a sweet congrats on the covers…I think I have them both on order…I may have to frame them myself…to continued success and creative vices..
Congrats on your quilts!
Glad that I could be the bearer of "new" news. Congrats again.
It was so fun meeting you in person at Quilt Market and thanks for getting me in. It was a wonderful experience and I had a blast seeing it and experiencing it first hand. The "Cover Girl" quilt is one of my favorite and I have it on my nightstand to look at and dream about making someday (soon I hope).
Congrats on all your successes!!! someday i hope to accomplish a little bit of what you have :O}
have a good day lissa.
congratulations , lots of wonderful quilts published! Will have to pick up that red and white book especially after seeing the quilt exhibit in NYC I don't think I can ever make enough red and white quilts.!
can't wait till I get the new quiltmania magazine, looks like a beautiful quilt
I just picked up my Quiltmania and fell in love w/the Pom Pom quilt. It's just gorgeous! One question though, the fabric requirements are worded strangely, can you please clarify what's needed for it? Many thanks!
