I’ve been sitting on an exciting bit of news since September… My friend, Silvana Pereira Coutinho and I swapped wonky house blocks a couple of years ago. We each made a block for ourselves and each other and traded them via mail. At the end of 1 year, we had 24 blocks. (Silvana lives in Brazil.) I have to say how much I love the opportunity to meet new friends all around the world through the digital medium! Thanks for participating in this with me Silvana! You are an awesome friend and designer!
I made mine into a quilt which was in works to be published in NQA’s “The Quilting Quarterly”. I am so excited as I received my contributor copy yesterday!!! A special “Thanks” goes out to the Editor, Barbara Polston and of course Silvana! It is an awesome Issue too… It features some wonderful mini quilts and mini quilt artists. It is the Winter 2014 issue, Volume 43 Number 4 #173. If you’d like to order a copy, you can visit their site at http://www.nqaquilts.org
I think in celebration, I am going to give away a signed copy to someone who leaves a comment on this blogpost! Now, in all fairness, I have to warn you that I am technology challenged. I do it the old fashioned way. I put everyone’s names into a basket and have my son draw the winner. (Of which I take pictures…) If you would like to be in the drawing, leave me a comment and a way that I can get in touch with you… (Or you can check back when I post the winner on December 20th) That gives you a whole week!
Thanks for visiting, and celebrating mine and Silvana’s publication!
