Quiltmania

I am so excited… look what I am holding in my hands!!!!! .
The newest issue of Quiltmania.

And the biggest surprise is that I’m in the magazine!
Quiltmania came to visit in December when Bonnie was here.They took pictures in our home of a few of my quilts. I’m so happy.

Who else is in the same issue? My dear friend Bonnie! Quiltmania wrote a very nice article about her new book!

Lucy


Ps. Quiltmania choose 7 quilts of mine that they will publish with a pattern in future issues.

I bet some of you were wondering why I haven’t been posting about my quilts in progress, this is why!
When they are published in the magazine I will let you know . Once they are published I will post about them with pictures of the quilt..
This is so exciting for me.

Lucy

*update*


Many of you have asked which issue I am in.
Its Issue no. 70.

The magazine comes out in the USA weeks later so you will have to look out for it.
You can find Quiltmania in Barnes and Noble, Borders, quilt shops and I am sure there are shops that carry it on line.
As soon as I hear it is available in the USA I will let you know.

Ik heb het hele artikel en dat van Bonnie gespeld! Wat een schitterende foto's en een leuk artikel. Wat moet dat super leuk zijn om in zo'n tijdschrift te staan. Naar de patronen kijk ik uit! Ben heel benieuwd wat die zijn. Gelukkig heb ik een abonnement ;-)

Wow! this is a LOT of comments!!

My magazines showed up TODAY...so I will post about it tomorrow! I really love the pics they took..my fave is either Joseph, or the one with your cast with the mirror,.showing the reflection of the tulips quilt in the mirror.

Dave says congrats too! I was so happy to show him where I've been when I visit you!

Hi Lucy,

I'm so glad I subscribed! This issue is supposed to be the first one I'll received. Looks like I subscribed in the nick of time!

Did you get the email I send you a couple weeks ago? I didn't hear back from you but I imagine you are very busy. I'm loving using my little needlecase!

Fiesta said...

congratulations Lucy. I got my issue yesterday and your story, home and self look fantastic.

Quilt Enthusiast said...

Hey Lucy,
I have been going to Borders a bookstore near me that
periodically has Quiltmania. No #70 yet but hopefully
soon. I am so looking forward to doing some of your
projects. Have a Happy Easter.

Quilt Enthusiast said...

Lucy,
Quiltmania #70 is now in California.
I'm glad to have it. Looking forward
to your patterns in the future months

Quiltbirdie said...

Hello Lucy -

I think I know how excited you were when you saw the magazine - because that's how excited I was when I saw that you had left me comments on my blog! You're definitely an inspiration to me.

I just got my magazine yesterday. It's wonderful, congratulations.

Sue said...

I love this magazine and pick it up at the bookstore often. I was wondering where I can subscribe to it. The website is not in Enlgish and I would love to have it coming to my mailbox!

Congratulations to you!! What an honor!
