For the Show and Tell hosted by Kelli this week, I will show my latest published quilt:
I received a complimentary copy of the July/August 2008 issue of Creative Machine Embroidery Magazine. This is my first time being published in this magazine:
“Pretty as a Peacock” is one of the projects in the magazine:
The quilt being draped over my wing back chair. Doesn’t look too bad, does it? Don’t worry, it will be folded up nicely and draped somewhere else in the house… this post has further explanation:
I enjoyed working with the Asian-themed fabrics from Robert Kaufman, especially the fuzzy-cutting part to get the exact pattern what I wanted to showcase in the squares:
The embroidery designs are from Zundt Designs, embroidered with slight thread color varations:

I was browsing through the rest of the magazine, and guess what it is on page for the advertisement for the “Quilting & Embroidery” Magazine? IVORY SPRING!!!
