LOOK FAMILIAR?

Last week Mary at Quilt Hollow e-mailed me to say that she saw my Williamsburg Medallion quilt in the April issue of McCall's Quilting! Another friend in Minnesota reported the same thing. I have been running to the mailbox daily to no avail. I have been haunting grocery stores and other places as well--nothing! My copy of McCall's Quilting finally came in the mail today! I am very happy to see my own little quilt published in what is now my favorite quilting magazine. (I wonder if they want more of my designs?)

Here is the quilt that I designed over a year ago, when the Williamsburg Toile, by Windham, came out. I love medallion quilts and using that beautiful bird for the center was a no-brainer. The rest of it came together as I played with the fabric, looking for balance with the toile, etc. I was surprised and delighted to see how popular this pattern became. What's Your Stitch 'N Stuff, the LQS, always generously supports my patterns, and displays my quilts. They became quite excited about this one. They used up all their red and also the blue toile in kits and they have sold out of them. They may have one or two left in brown toile, also lovely. They now have kits of the scrappy version, including the wool for the birds.

(You can reach them at 757-523-2711 if you need a pattern or a scrappy kit -- they have chosen awesome fabric!)

So this is the issue, April 2009, page 60. Think of me when you see that bird, looking proud and pretty, and maybe even strutting a little. Give me that much, will you? I'll be back to earth soon enough, I'm sure!

P.S. I need to clarify that there are no directions for my quilt in the magazine. It is shown in conjunction with What's Your Stitch 'N Stuff as their most popular quilt.

Absolutely fantasticaly wonderful! It's a great, great design and your use of fabrics totally charming. I am rushing out to buy myself a copy AND I will wait until a crowd of people surround me so I can announce...'oh my, it's my friend Marcie's quilt design in McCall's Quilting !!! Can't wait...we can say we knew you when. Hey, it's just beginning lady. P.S. Don't they tell you in advance when they do things like that?????

Nana B said...

I showed it off at a guild meeting in northern MN to friends, they all ooooh'd and aaaah'd and it was fun to tell them I knew you well. I keep telling you you have to come to market and get busy on making your patterns available to more people. "You're not in Kansas anymore."

Wendy said...

Congratulations are getting published in such a big magazine. It's a gorgeous quilt and you did a fantastic job of putting it all together. I can't tell my friends that I almost know the person that designed this quilt.

Kim said...

Congratulations, Marcie! How X-TREMELY X-ITING! Woo-hoo! I'll have to show everyone in Sacramento the magazine and they'll be incredibly impressed that I "know" you! Enjoy the high! You certainly deserve it!

Lindah said...

Congratulations! I will certainly look for the mag. I think our stores are on the end of the delivery chain out here.
By the way, my Indian Paintbrush arrived and timely. Thank you. It was such a long time before I could order it. Now I hope it won't be that long before I can start working on it! It is such a pretty pattern.

Julie in the Barn said...

Congratulations, Marcie. You have a right to be proud & excited. It's wonderful to see your talent showcased for all to see. Of course, we all knew how talented you are already.

Karen said...

Congrats for being published. Your quilt is beautiful.
It cracks me up...not even Feb yet and already the April magazines are out...;)

Liz said...

Very cool, Marcie!! That is so exciting! I think it's safe to say that 'you have arrived'!!

sewprimitive karen said...

Wowwwwww that is so exciting! Can you send me a scan of the page that your quilt appears on? I still haven't been able to find an issue of your Favorite Quilting Magazine! Definitely send them some more designs, Marcie!

Quilt Hollow said...

Your on top. (of my side bar!!)LOL

Congrats again Marcie....you deserve to sit proud and pretty!

Tazzie said...

Congratulations Marcie, you deserve to be in print my friend, your work is just amazing. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the issue. Have a wonderful day.

Yvonne said...

Congratulations Marcie.....so cool and well deserved. As soon as we thaw out a little, I'm going to get me a copy. I'm so happy for you!!!

Judi said...

Congratulations! There can't be anything greater than having your hard work and love of quilting shown off in a magazine. You deserve to be proud.

Libby said...

Fabulous! Just think of all the homes your quilt is going to be in.

Quilts And Pieces said...

How exciting is that! I'll have to go out and find one!

Rose Marie said...

I'm so thrilled for you!!!!! You do such wonderful patterns and they should be asking you for another......

*karendianne. said...

I forgot about that Scrappy Version! I think that might be my new favorite!

Janet said...

Congratulations!! It is such a lovely quilt. I'll be looking for the magazine.:0)

Evelyn aka Starfishy said...

How exciting for you! The quilt is wonderful, but I seem to remember that you have a whole bunch of madallion quilts, all equally lovely! Cheers! Evelyn

Mary said...

I meant to write you a couple days ago when I saw your quilt mentioned in the magazine but by the time I got to the computer I'd forgotten.

Reading about you made me feel like I knew someone famous!

Linda said...

Wow that is very exciting!! Congratulations! And thank you for your kind words on my magazine shoot as well! hugs, Linda

Judy said...

I did see that too...should have come right away..congrats!

StitchinByTheLake said...

My McCall's has not come yet and I'm pretty mad! I sent my renewal check on December 29 and they cashed it within a day. If they can cash it that quick they could at least get the magazine to me on time! Can't wait to see it. blessings, marlene

Karen said...

Found a copy of THE magazine and took it to work. I showed everyone at work and told them the story of how we met. Most responded with..."are you kidding?"

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

I need to get a copy so that I can have you autograph it at Mid-Atlantic! What a great honor for you, congratulations. Take your time returning to earth, you deserve some floating time. Yay, Marcie!

Carole said...

Congrads! It is lovely! I did rec'd my copy in the mail and haven't yet found the time to check it out! Will do so as soon as I get off this computer! Wooohooo, so happy for you! Cheers!
