Last week I taught a class at my favorite quilt shop in the whole world, Q-First in Quilting, which also happens to be about a mile away from my house in Lexington. (Lucky me, right??) In class I taught my favorite method for making Flying Geese units using squares – 1 larger square and 4 smaller contrasting squares, strategically stitched together to produce four Flying Geese units all at once. Instead of having to tediously cut tiny triangles, or waste yards of fabric by using rectangles and squares, using this method will save you time, and will hopefully help you fall in love with the Flying Geese block.
Last Saturday I checked my mail to find the Sept./Oct. issue of Quilty! Featuring my Airborne design on page 44. This quilt was so much fun to make and I can’t wait to see what other quilters come up with!
The Quilty team did such a great job and I couldn’t be more pleased. Can’t wait for Jan./Feb. – Mountainscape will be featured then!!
Last month I got an email from Mary Fons, the editor and creator of Quilty Magazine. She asked me to submit some designs for use in an upcoming issue, and turns out they didn’t just want one quilt – they wanted two!
My debut is happening in the Sept/Oct issue and I couldn’t be more excited. My “Airborne” quilt will be featured then, and my “Mountainscape” quilt will be in the Jan/Feb 2015 issue.
I can remember looking through Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazines during my teenage years and wishing that I was talented enough to have one of my quilts featured. Now, years later, my dream is coming true!
