How cool is this!! I have been waiting to see my pattern for my Colour Columns Cushion in print for a while. And it is here now! WooHoo! Copies are available at quilt shops. I got mine at Atlantic News on Morris St in Halifax. I think they ordered a few copies more than usual for this edition.
I would like to thank Heather McArthur, Editor/Publisher of Quilter's Connection Magazine for including my pattern in the Fall 2014 issue. A quilt magazine for Candian Quilters! I was so pleased with how my article looked when I opened the magazine. It has been such a pleasure, Heather! Maybe I will start working on designing something new!
I would also like to thank most especially, Karen Neary. Karen suggested my pattern to Heather and got the ball rolling and helped me do the finetuning involved in writing a quilt pattern. I had no experience, and needed lots of help and am very grateful to my dear friend and fellow Nova Scotian. Of course, Karen is an expert since she has written tons of patterns and books etc. Just look on the cover of this magazine and you will see her amazingly beautiful quilt, "New York, New York", with all the instructions inside to make it for yourself. Check out Karen's website for lots more patterns and inspiration. Karen's quilt will be one of the grand prizes at the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival in Amherst, NS, October 14th - 18th. I bought my ticket!
To celebrate, I am giving away a copy of this issue of Quilter's Connection Magazine. I just ask that you leave me a comment, any comment, on this post, and that you are a follower of my blog. I will choose a winner on Friday, Sept 19 and announce that winner the next day. Remember to make sure I have a way to respond to you if you are the winner. My Giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who visited and thanks for all the lovely comments.
Fun fact.... Beside Karen and myself, also in this issue, an article by Kaaren Johnston, a fellow Nova Scotia quilter. Three's the charm!
