Magazine Sneak Peek

1 11 2017

November greetings to all my faithful blog readers! Besides gearing up for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I am looking forward to several quilt related happenings this month.

*I am making a quilt for publication by McCall’s Quick Quilts in late spring . . . but I can’t divulge the design yet.

*The Fourth Quarter Challenge – using Charm Packs of 5″ squares – is in full swing, and next week I will post some fantastic quilts made by blog readers. If you have a photo to share, email me:

*Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers, vol. 16 will soon hit the newsstands. My block, “Beacons in the Fog,” was selected for inclusion! I am excited, to say the least! I will participate in the blog tour November 16-20, and I anticipate over 100 comments from those seeking to win a free magazine. While it is always fun to hear from “new” quilters during the blog tour, I would like to reward one of my regular readers with a copy of the magazine. Statistically, your chances of winning are better with fewer commenting participants. So leave a comment below if you’d like to win a copy of the magazine. The drawing will be 10 November.

It’s not often that you can say you know a published quilt designer. But I do! We met in Germany where you encouraged me in my quilting efforts. I’m now in Florida and still making quilts. It’s fun to read your blog.
