Last June I had the fantastic opportunity to meet Katy Jones at Camp Stitchalot retreat in Michigan. At that point, I was interested in doing more pattern publications in magazines and she was getting ready to launch a brand new quilting magazine based in the UK. We talked, she liked my quilts, I liked her, and now I present to you “jumping jacks”, my first quilt project published in the current issue of Quilt Now.
This magazine is fun because each issue has a basic theme, and this month we have scrap and stash sewing patterns. I made my “jumping jacks” as a baby size quilt with lots of bright prints and a graphic black and white secondary design. I have to admit I was super thrilled to see my picture in print by my quilt!
I am so excited to be able to offer a copy of this issue to one reader here on the blog. This giveaway is sponsored by Brenda at Pink Castle Fabrics, so if you are interested in subscribing to Quilt Now or just need a bit of retail (quilty) therapy, she has what you need! My jumping jacks baby quilt is a great way to use one of Brenda’s fat sixteenth bundles, too. Just a hint.
To enter to win this fabulous magazine, leave a comment on this post. Tell me, what do you like to do with your scraps? I will announce a winner in a week.
The winner of last week’s fabric giveaway is: Lisa E. Thanks for all your comments! it made me laugh to read all the bits about winter woes, and a bit jealous of those who don’t have snow and cold.
Have a great week! Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow yankees.
