Quilt Mania

 
 
Yea!  My Quilt Mania, Special Spring Edition arrived in the mail yesterday, along with the Vintage Magazine.........It called for a stop from everything, I settled back in my favorite chair and enjoyed!  Lest you think I've put my designs first, I'll tell you that I've put them in the order in which they appeared in the magazine.  I always get a thrill when I see my designs in a magazine......this little, old farm girl from Minnesota never thought this would happen.  Let me remind you that my first enterprise was selling night crawlers to fishermen!  :-)))  You just never know where life will take you.

I love how this magazine reads like a quilt book, and is not cluttered with advertisements.   I sometimes get a second magazine and if I do this one will be for a random give a way.
Once again the spell check on blogger doesn't take my word for the spelling of some of the names.....I'm sorry.  :-((

  3. Thanks for the peek into that fabulous magazine. I'm still on the fence about subscribing... unfortunately, magazines often arrive pretty tattered by the time they make it to our rural mailbox!
