I received my complimentary November issue of “The Quilter” in which my “Pieceful Garden” is featured!! I set the magazine with the pages open to my quilt on the dining table:
Right after the article on the “Pieceful Garden” is Benartex advertising the VERY same fabric collection (FAMILY TREE by Pam Lindquist) I had used for the quilt. Now, how cool is that?!
The picture in the magazine shows off very nicely the free-hand feather quilting I had done on the quilt with my Bernina 640E using the Bernina Stitch Regulator. I thought you might enjoy some close-up pictures of the quilting:
Here are some pictures of the back of the quilt:
The sample quilt is currently on display at Rogers Sewing Center, my “home-sweet sewing-home”. So, if you happen to find yourself in Northwest Arkansas, do hop on in and meet the sweet people there.
As a contributing quilter in the magazine, I was MORE than anxious to thumb through the magazine to see exactly how my quilt is being featured in the magazine. I have to say I am thoroughly impressed by Laurette Koserowski (the editor) and her staff for a job very very well done, not only in featuring my quilt in such an attractive way, but also the other quilt projects as well.
Another reason I like the “The Quilter” is because I feel like much thought is put into the presentation of each quilt project — the details and accents are simply amazing. To me, the magazine also serves as an excellent resource for quilters to get ideas on how to incorporate quilts in home decorating. My quilting friends, I hope you are planning to get your own copy — you will be inspired, I promise!
