Does anyone remember when I said in January that this is my lucky year? I based that on the fact that my birthday read the same frontwards and backwards: 01022010 Remember? Well, for me, this has been a truly lucky year. I have had quilts published in FOUR magazines this year! To help you remember, they are listed on my side bar. Notice the full length photo of this one as well. This one, above, is the latest and is coming out in McCall's Quick Quilts October-November issue. I named this one Saddle Tramp. You must click on the name to see how they shot it. I mean with the camera. I was hoping they would shoot it with a horse or saddle or fence or something like that. And they did! Yay!! I am very happy!
Please take note of the way this quilt is quilted. My friend, Rose Skinner quilted it using the Baptist Fan. I wanted it done that way to give it the look and simplicity of a well used utility quilt. Like something from the bunkhouse. Great job Rose!
I hope you will all go out and buy this magazine. I want their sales to jump every time I am in a McCall's magazine. Maybe that way they will keep me on!
