Yup, and guess what??? I have a block in the magazine and am thrilled to be part of the bog tour. Whooohooo!
Of course I am not famous enough to merit getting my name or block on the cover, but it will be one of the 100 Blocks and that is good enough for me. BTW, I am working on one for the next issue too! The magazine will go on the news stands in early November and I hope you will all get a copy. But just in case. . . .I will be giving away a couple of issues right here on my blog!!!!
I am not sure which block they chose for the issue. It will either be this one: Rising Star
Or this one: Winter Sun
I figure it will be exciting no matter which one they chose! I will be posting more about this in the next week or so, so hang in there. They are going to be offering a whole lot of give-aways on the Quiltmaker website as well.
OK, I have more news. My Publisher Quiltwoman.com has introduced downloadable patterns, and most of my patterns that are available from her will be epatterns in the very near future. That means that you will be able to pay for the pattern and download it on the spot! And my newest pattern available from Quiltwoman.com is my Midnight Posies!! Many of you got this pattern for free last year when I offered it as my free Block of the Month. In case you missed it, click on the sidebar picture of the quilt on the left and it will take you directly to Quiltwoman.com where you can instantly download hundreds of patterns. . . including mine!!
This weekend I am vending at the Maple Leaf Festival Quilt Show in Baldwin City, KS. This is a great outdoor festival complete with craft booths, great food and a parade. The Quilt Show is in the old elementary school building and is always a great show with lots of quilt vendors. The Maple trees in Baldwin are starting to turn and it is a perfect weekend to come out and see the festival and the quilt show.
Any more good news and I think I will faint. LOL
