Published!

I have been sitting on this for so long, and am beyond excited to share it with you!

I am published in Quilter's World Holiday 2013 edition.    My quilt Modern Holiday is in there!

I designed it specifically for a quick Christmas quilt as I don't have any patterns that I can make up in a hurry.   Using only two blocks and putting a modern twist on it, I created a quilt that got accepted into a magazine.
See that pic on the bottom right...


There I am with my fancy 'Modern Holiday' quilt


I used lots of fun red and green fabric, and I might add there were lots of polka dots on the fabric!


Here is a close up of the blocks and quilting.   I used a meandering loop all over it to try and create a whimsical look.   The fabric  is Riley Blake and the batting is bamboo batting by Pellon Inc.

Now I am off to do my happy dance!
