Ever Evolving

Do you remember my Dead Simple Quilt?  Here's a couple more shots to refresh your memory.

I couldn't exactly follow the rules!  I threw in some Disappearing Four Patches, just to liven things up.  When I listed it in my Etsy shop, I called it Simple Patchwork Quilt.  I had no idea if that's what caught the attention of Mary Fons, the editor of Quilty magazine, but it did.  I received an etsy convo, last August, asking if I'd be interested in having my quilt in her magazine.

I said, Yes.

Here are the photos of my "spread"

My ever supportive husband was very impressed that it was four pages.  Below is the mag cover.

This was quite a process.  I was assigned an editor, I was asked for a photo,(which they didn't use), a bio, a tutorial, and my quilt.  I still don't have the quilt back; but I'm sure it's on the way.  Last month I was asked to comment on why I piece the back of my quilts, (they didn't use that).  I was asked for info. regarding my long arm quilter, (they didn't use that, either).  I mentioned the things they didn't use, not out of disappointment, but as a heads up, if you go through the quilt mag process!

It was all a very exciting process.
May your bobbins always be full,
