Hooray!!! Look what arrived on my doorstep this weekend. I received my complimentary copy of the first issue of Quilty Magazine from Fons & Porter, which features my Anni quilt. It's so exciting to see my first print publication of one of my quilts! Anni is one of my favorite quilts to date, and I'm so humbled by the kind words that Mary Fons had to say about it.
She writes, "Anni: A modern quilt masterpiece blends fine and folk art. Clean lines and color blocking make for soft minimalist heaven." Wow, a modern quilt masterpiece. Pretty cool and so amazingly kind. Thank you so much, Mary.
And look at the ad that is right after my feature. It's for the Fabric Shack, which is one of my favorite fabric stores located about 20 minutes from my house. I love little bits of serendipity like that.
I've had a chance to look through Quilty and it's a fantastic magazine. The first issue contains 13 easy quilt patterns (including my Anni), as well as articles on The Modern Quilt Guild, Quilts of Valor, and more, plus lots of incredibly useful quilting tips and techniques. I know you will love this magazine too.
So, would you like to win a copy of Quilty? I purchased an extra one and I'd love to share it with one of my readers, so let's have a little giveaway. You'll have up to two chances to enter and here's how:
