Picks from the Past

Remember this quilt? I showed it way back when. This month it is showing up in the Feb. 2012 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting! I am so pleased to be published in this great magazine. It has long been one of my favorites!
 
I don't have this magazine, but have seen that some of you have received your issue. Since I am not at home to receive mine in the mail, I need to go on a search today to try and find it. 
This is what the cover looks like, depending on where you live. It seems they couldn't decide which quilt they wanted on the cover. I would have been happy to help them make that decision. No brainer, right? LOL!
Anyway, I am thrilled with the photos of my quilt in this magazine. They really know what they are doing at APandQ.

By the way, the quilt was made primarily of Marcus Fabrics Civil War Chronicles by Judie Rothermel. Such a fabulous line of fabric! I previously called it Celebration Stars in honor of Marcus Fabrics 100 years in business.

Just so you know, Christmas music is filling the house here in Arizona. But since the most influential person here is 15 year old Danielle, we are listening to Justin Bieber's Christmas album. If only I could get it out of my head!

Wouldn't you know it! I cancelled my long time subscription after the last issue . . . don't get me started *s* Looks like I need to go on a shopping trip. I must have this issue in my library. Who knows - maybe one day you will autograph it for me!

Yes, I remember it well - it is so gorgeous! And it/you deserve to be fetured in the magazine!

Congrats...Love the quilt! I still haven't had a chance to look through my copy of the magazine. Please tell me that you haven't gotten addicted to Justin Bieber!

I was VERY glad to see your quilt in this issue. AP&Q seems to be leaning farther toward the bright and contemporary and I'm finding less and less to inspire me with each issue. Your quilt inspired me!

Marcie, it should be your quilt on the cover; it is gorgeous! Congratulations. May I get through Christmas without being blessed by Justin Bieber Carols :-).

When I opened up my magazine and saw your quilt, I put it on the to-do list! It's absolutely beautiful and I love the fabrics!

Karen said...

Congratulations! A good quilt that I would certainly consider making. I have not received a copy yet.

Linda said...

Congrats, Marcie. I got my magazine last week but hadn't stopped to look at it until now. Yes, this would have been lovely on the cover. Lovely! I feel so sorry for you, I hope you get to hear some real music soon! Hugs and Merry Christmas.

With all the Christmas craziness, I've gotten really behind on my blog reading and magazine reading...when this magazine came in the mail, I only flipped through the pages quickly to look at the quilt pictures. This quilt was the only one that caught my eye...imagine my surprise and delight when I came here and see that YOU are the designer! That is so cool! Love that quilt!

Congratulations! I'll have to dig for mine. I just have not had the time to look at any of my magazines. Sad, I know! They just pile up! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!
