A Check Off The Bucket List

If you have read my blog for even a day, you would know that I really want to get published in 'Quilting Arts' magazine and I really want a quilt to get accepted into Houston.
Well, guess what?  
I GOT PUBLISHED IN 'QUILTING ARTS' MAGAZINE!!!

They had a 'Map It Out' challenge and selected 10 winners to appear in the next edition of their magazine.   I mailed my little quilt off and then waited...and waited....and waited.   Finally it arrived and I was over the moon excited!

Here it is on page 81, in all it's little glory=)


Just to top my day right off, I get to work with 'Madhuri' from The Quilted Fish for a special little project.  It is so much fun.   I really could do my whole house in it, including my wardrobe.  Really!

Look at the selvage, how cute is that?


 Have a great weekend!

Wow! That is wonderful and amazing. Way to go. Your map quilt is great. I'll look closer at it when I pick up my copy of QAM. I love that mag. And I'm a little envious that you can say you've been published in there! Very proud of you.
