Published! And Another Giveaway!

After the fun of winning third in the American Made Brand Tiny Quilt Challenge, here's the AMB fabric bundle that arrived for me today. Pretty, aren't they?

More happiness arrived Tuesday in the form of the Fall issue of Modern Patchwork magazine. A hexagon pillow, designed by little 'ole me, was selected for publication! I couldn't be more excited about it! Gosh, you can even buy this magazine at Barnes and Noble, and JoAnn Fabrics!

While my piece isn't on the cover, you can see it in this online link. And, here's the page in the magazine... my pillow on a hot pink butterfly chair. I like it!

For my personal styled photos, I chose an aqua chair.


Hexagon Pillow, 15" X 15"
This project can be used to learn English paper-piecing, hand appliqué, and big stitch quilting.

The pillow is sewn together with a nice envelop back because I prefer to be able to remove the form to wash my piece.

I'll be teaching how to make my Hexagon Pillow soon! If you're in Central Florida, you can register for classes here, at the Lifelong Learning College. We'll be meeting three consecutive Monday afternoons beginning October 19.

This giveaway is closed.
Modern Patchwork has graciously provided an extra copy for me to giveaway. This giveaway is open internationally and a winner will be chosen Saturday evening.

Just comment to let me know...
Have you ever looked at or purchased an issue of Modern Patchwork? 

This giveaway is closed. Linda

  2. I purchased an issue of "Modern Patchwork" last year after meeting a few women at a sewing retreat who had just had their work published - like you!
    I'm new to hexies and wanting to try a bit of big stitch so your pillow looks like a great project for me. Congratulations!
