Machine Quilting Unlimited and Eye of Panic

What a great surprise I had this weekend! I opened my mailbox and found an envelope addressed to me from some place in Florida. I opened it, and found a copy of the November/December issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited. I thought it was a free, trial copy, but then I noticed that there was an article on the Sacred Threads Exhibit that was held in DC this past summer. Since I had been a participant, with two pieces in the show, I turned right to that article. Imagine my surprise and delight when I saw my own eye staring back at me from page 28!

The author and magazine's managing editor, Kit Robinson, had chosen an assortment of images and stories from the exhibit for her seven page article. I am thrilled and honored to have my work included.

This is a detail shot of the piece. It will also be included in a book by Karen Musgrave called Quilts in the Attic: Uncovering the Hidden Stories of the Quilts We Love, which will be out in February 2012. (Karen's book is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com)

Of course I bought up the first copy of the magazine I saw with my friend's piece published inside! A little tooting of your horn and showing it off in the fabric store, too! Congrats and applause my friend!
