Well I know this is a brag but hey this is my blog and if I can't brag here then where can I brag? I have just received an email from Carolyn Beam the editor of Quiltmaker saying that one of the blocks I submitted for their next 100 Blocks magazine has been successful! Woohoo!!!
I don't know which block it was but am over the moon. Both blocks were designed for friends/students who wanted to make quilts for family and couldn't decide on a design. I had designs which had been floating around in my head for ages and didn't have time to make them so a deal was struck.
My friends make the quilts and I get full publishing rights on the finished product. Wait till I tell them their block will go international with their name. One block was Yvonne's Mystery designed as a mystery block for none other than Yvonne; while the other block is Isobel's Flight designed for Isobel. I will have to find a photo of the blocks and upload it.... I don't know if I ever organised myself about photographing the blocks... shall see.
So when will the magazine be on sale? November 16th. I don't know if that is the date for Australia and actually suspect that we will be later than that but I am really looking forward to it.
To accompany the magazine publication Quiltmaker also organises a blog and website tour over a few weeks to coincide with the release. Will have to get organised on my blog and website and actually update them a bit more. Mind you that has been a bit difficult with going back to work.... oh for a lotto win :)
