I'm in McCalls Quilting!!!!!

McCall's Quilting March/April issue is now available and I have to say I am on Cloud 99!!!!  Why . . .


because inside that edition are my quilts!!!!!   Girl or Boy . . . Hugs to Enjoy were designed and pieced by me and quilted by Natalia Bonner.  Isn't this just the cutest picture??  I can't get over how adorable it makes my quilts look!!!!

Being published is something I have had on my list of things to do for a while now.  I still remember doing a little squeal and happy dance when I got the email that these quilt designs were accepted.  The process takes a while and now that it is here I still can't believe it.  I just get giddy each time I see this!!!

Here is a full shot of each of the quilts.  They feature both piecing and applique.

I used Riley Blake's Penny Lane by My Mind's Eye.  I just love these color combos :)  They are so bright and happy and are just perfect for a new little wee one!!!

And here are some close-ups of the quilting.  The quilting Natalia did is just amazing!!  Thanks again Lady!!!



Happy Quilting to each of you!!!  I think I might be on Cloud 99 all week long :)
