Ooohh, look ...

... I'm a cover girl!
That quilt, called Charming Columns (cos it's made using charm packs, and they are in columns) is one of mine.  I couldn't show it on here until the magazine was published, but it's out today, and I've just seen the cover. I've never been on the cover of a magazine before, so I'm chuffed to bits about it. I will show some more photos of the quilt soon. This was started when I went to a class (which was run by my friend QuiltHaze) with Scrappy. I didn't want to make the quilt that everyone else was doing (yes I know, typical stroppy student, me) so asked if it would be OK to do my own thing and QuiltHaze was fine about it, so this is the result.

I'd like to thank the editor of the magazine, Joanna from British P&Q for making me famous, QuiltHaze for being happy for me to be a revolting student, Scrappy for suggesting we went to the class in the first place, my family for all their support, the local supermarket for the food they supply that keeps me going, Honda for my car that gets me to these workshops, and, sob, sniffle, I'm getting so emotional, anyone else who knows me. There, how's that for an acceptance of an honour speech? Worthy of the Oscars, or do I have some work to do on it?

I must admit that I have "borrowed" the cover photo from the magazine's website without their permission. I hope they don't mind.

  4. I'm glad to hear that someone else doesn't like to "do what everyone else is doing!" I look at pictures of quilting classes and think, but I don't like working in groups and doing just what everyone else is doing.
    Congratulations and good luck on the next quilt!

  9. Well done you and congratulations. I must admit many years ago, I thought I'd love to be good enough for a cover, but of course it will never happen, but so chuffed to actually know someone who has made it. Must buy it when it appears over here,(if it does) probably after Xmas, but I'll keep my eyes open for it. Have a good weekend and take care.
