I could hardly wait to get my hands on "Home Quilter", Mark Lapinski's magazine. Right there in the table of contents is my name. He published a quilt that I designed with Just Dreamy from Riley Blake Designs. I met Mark at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh Spring 2009. He asked me to design a quilt. As soon as I got home I went to work designing something really unusual. You can see the quilt and pattern in the HQ Oct/Nov issue. This is really exciting! I had no idea I would feel this way about being published. It's one of those 100 things I wanted to do before I die. I can just check that off my list.
These are some photos of the quilt taken in my yard before I sent the quilt to Mark.
I had so much fun designing this quilt. The idea same to me as I was flying home from market in Pittsburgh.
These are a few more close up shots. The line is very spring and fresh. I love the colors. I highlighted orange the most because I think it looks so great in this line of fabric "Just Dreamy"
I have buttons on the center of the flowers, which are needle turn applique.
