Quiltmaker 100 Blocks

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 :)
