Magazine Alert

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks "Collector's Edition" is on newstands. I was lucky enough to win my copy through their blog. It is fun to see a few of my friends in it! Congrats to all of you!!

My Jan/Feb 2010 issue of McCall's Quilting came today. I love this one!! What is even better is that my friend Kim Brackett's quilt is published in this issue. Kim has a blog, Magnolia Bay Quilts. Kim is also the author of Scrap-Basket Surprises and has her second book in the works. Congrats Kim!
Also have you noticed the adorable penny rug giveaway at the top right of my side bar I posted several days ago? Hurry and go HERE to Cath's Pennies to get your name in the hat!! She has an adorable website of wool goodies not to be missed!!

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

Congratulations on winning the 100 Blocks issue. Isn't it fun? I've found at least 15 new projects I want to make. Some day, huh?

I saw the McCall's picture before I read the text, and I was thinking, "Hmm, that quilt looks so familiar." Ha! Thanks for sharing a picture -- I haven't seen the magazine yet and I'm really anxious to get my own copy.

Wendy said...

Oh wow that looks like a great magazine to go look for. I've got the book by Kim and love it. I wish only I had more time to make a quilt from the book.

Caths Pennies Designs said...

Oh my! Thank you so much for the kind words and the picture link to my giveaway. I'll be sure to visit you often too. :)

Hey Mary!

I have been waiting for this to come out. Thanks for letting me know that it is available. Now I have an excuse to escape the house (the housework and Little Person)!

XOXO!

Lucky you, I tried, but no win for me. Looks like a lot of great blocks, will have to look for it at the store this week.

QuiltSue said...

Congrats on winning that magazine.
I love Kim's work too, and have already used several of her patterns!
As for the giveaway, I have already entered it, but, working on the assumption that a lot of other people have too, I have bought the pattern, together with another one!

Kaaren said...

Those two mags are on my ever-growing list when I go to Joann's tomorrow.

Wool? Did you mention wool? Must go check out her blog.

Kim said...

Thanks for the heads up. Have this one on my list to pick up at the book store. Love the Magnolia Bay quilt! Nice that you won this copy!

Mary, congrats on your win. I have never seen that magizine and you know as a quilter we like to have it all...and it is not always a good thing.
