What a fun surprise it was to be this month’s cover girl in my favorite quilt magazine! What was even more fun was thinking through the first time that happened many, many years ago…and now I’m feeling a bit old! :-). Sometimes I forget how long I have worked in this amazing industry with so many amazing people over the years!
One of the great things that APQ is doing in the issues throughout this whole anniversary year is kind of like a retrospective with contributors from over the years. It is really such a great idea for everyone to look back and be collectively proud of the work we have done!
It was a really lovely walk down memory lane for me as I remembered all the past magazine contributions over the years.
If you want to read all about it and see all the other fabulous projects in the pages… go grab an issue of the magazine [I have seen them at quilt shops of course and also Michael’s, Joann’s, Safeway…!
This is the featured quilt I designed for the magazine this time around. I don’t often use black and especially not as a background and I just fell in love with how the dark background made the colors pop. And don’t even get me started on that beautiful quilting. Susan (@thefeltedpear) is in my band of favorite quillty ladies and always helps bring my quilts to life!
If you want to make one of your own, find your favorite warm black for the background and start collecting orange, grey, cream and black prints to coordinate!
And here’s a few more pictures I was able to take, as well…
Be sure to pick up your copy today and let me know what you think of the issue!
