I got the most wonderful package in the mail this week: the Spring 2013 issue of Simple Quilts and Sewing!
I am very excited to share that my Lone Starburst pattern is featured within, along with directions to make a pillow I created to feature it: measurements, fabric requirements, the works.
Seeing something I created in a REAL magazine for the first time was pretty surreal, and I really love the styling of the photography.
I don't know about you, but I have a ton of extremely special quilt blocks that are just waiting for this kind of treatment. Making one block into a pillow gives it a chance to shine on its own.
Have you ever looked at a quilt magazine? I have to admit that until this package, I hadn't, at least not seriously. These things are chock full of things to make! I want to make them all!
I've been strictly an internet quilting girl, and I even buy most of my fabric online. Sometimes, though, an in-person, tangible experience can't be beat.
Plus, there's a snazzy photo of me. Ignore the fact that my name is missing a letter. I'm trying to.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots of pillow-making, and you can find full directions, as well as Lone Starburst templates, in the Spring 2013 issue of Simple Quilts and Sewing magazine.
