Guess what’s exciting?

This is!

Oh hey!

One of my quilts on the cover of a magazine! Eeek! Needless to say, I’m thrilled.

Quilters Home contacted Latifah and me a while ago about the MQG because they were writing an article on the modern quilting movement.

The article is great – you should grab an issue if you can… and meanwhile, I bought a umm… few copies. Who wants one? Drop me a comment and I’ll send one of you a copy! I’ll pick a winner on Monday.

It’s giveaway central over here on the ol’ blog ( in June I’ll be back to blogging about sewing!! My job will be over AND the book will be turned in) so check back here Tuesday as I’m part of the Handmade Beginnings – Anna Marie Horner’s new book – blog tour.
