Cover girl, and a giveaway!!!


I was so excited to receive my copy of Quiltmaker's Quilt from 100 Blocks and even more excited when I noticed that my quilt made the front page!  It is the quilt on the far right.  It was fun drawing up this design using my block from Quiltmaker's 100 blocks volume 5. So fun!


It seriously is so cool to have my design in this magazine.  I still cannot believe it!  I love the art of designing quilts and it is so rewarding to have my design shared in a magazine all over the country. 


Me and my blonde hair on the contributors page.  


You can see my design on page 42.  The awesome ladies over at Quiltmaker are giving away copies of this magazine and you have the chance to win a copy here on my blog.  Just leave me one comment and you will be entered to win a copy. For more places to visit and have more chances to win your own copy of the magazine, go here.  

Thanks and good luck!!
