I have been published!! Yipee!!!



Back in October I designed a quilt and it was accepted by "Quilts and More" magazine to be published. I had almost forgotten about the quilt when the mail came today with my magazine! I love this quilt. It's fun because it uses a couple jelly rolls and a layer cake with some yardage as well. It's the perfect scrappy quilt!



I love having my quilt in an awesome setting. I don't get that great of pictures of my quilts by doing it myself. I think the photographer did an awesome job with the quilt and the setting.



There is something cool about having your name in a magazine, makes me feel special, I love it! I pre-ordered a few magazines so you can get your copy here if you would like. I will ship them out as soon as I get them!

Wow, that's so exciting Judi! Congratulations!

The closest I ever came to being published is when I designed a beaded banner for a contest that Mary Maxim had, and I won so they made a kit with my design and put in their catalog that it was designed by me. I ordered one! When I showed the catalog to some friends, they said how cool that someone with my same name had designed that kit! Oh well! I knew it was me!

Love your quilt...so cheerful!
