Be Still My Heart!!

The August 2011 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting arrived in my box today. My heart quickly skipped a beat when I spotted this adorable miniature quilt called, Sweet Carolina made out of Jo Morton fabrics! Is this not me or what?!!!


The cover quilt is our blogging friend Kathie Holland's quilt and another blogger friend Sherri McConnell's tote using hexagons from charm squares and her GO! cutter. Congrats ladies!!!



Mary Lou is still heavy on my mind (see previous post). If you wish to send the family a sympathy card I do have her address.

My magazine arrived yesterday. It has a lot of great projects, my favorites are the ones you mentioned!

Becky said...

I would love Mary Lou's address.

I haven't received my magazine yet. Maybe, it will be in tomorrow's mail. Thanks for the heads up!

Shelley said...

Ooooohhh, I want one too! The mag I mean. And we are even later getting it in Canada!! Yes, it does look like you Mary...and me, too LOL! I would love to do the lilies in wool:)

Betty Lou said...

I saw Kathy's quilt on the cover and like the little Jo Morton quilt also. So many quilts, so little time. Hope mailman brings my copy tomorrow.

Cheryl said...

Can't wait to get my issue. I agree about that Carolina Lily...want it, need it!
Thank you for the link to Mary Lou's touching post. Such a sad loss.

Janet said...

That is an adorable mini quilt! My magazine hasn't come yet but I might just make that as soon as it arrives.
I'd like Mary Lou's address to send her a card. She's been on my mind too. My kids have been getting a bit smothered with hugs the last few days.

Sherrill said...

That is NOT FAIR!! I always get mine last (and I agree, that mini IS adorable!!).

Pat said...

And...another blogger I know (Michelle) has one of her quilts in the article on the Alzheimer's quilts. My issue arrived today and it's such fun to see names I recognize in magazines!!!

Deb said...

Beautiful quilts - I'm behind in my blog reading...would you send me Mary's address. Thanks Deb

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

That has your name all over it! I was so excited to see Sherri's and Kathy's projects.

Sue said...

Yes, that Sweet Carolina quilt is me too. Love her fabrics.
Loved the bag by Sherri and always enjoy Kathie's quilts.
Can't wait to get mine in the mail :D

Karen said...

I just saw that Sherri had a project in there. I got my magazine yesterday and I told my DH how much I loved that block too. It is so sweet.

Mary said...

So, when will you be showing us your Sweet Carolina?

Needled Mom said...

I just received mine today and I can't wait to dive into it.

I would love to send Mary Lou a card.

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Oh my gosh! My heart skipped at Sweet Carolina too! :-) I have a pattern in a T-berries book for a whole quilt and have been fabric searching. ;-)

I would love to have Mary Lou's address too.
Thanks you!

Metanoia said...

That is a really nice mini quilt pattern!

Joyful Quilter said...

No fair, you got yours before me. That is a very cute little quilt, so how quickly will you have it made? ;o)

Cyndi said...

Hi Mary! We had a tornado here on Monday night and I have been without power until today...that's why you haven't heard from me!

Oh wow, that mini quilt is gorgeous, and yes, it just screams "MARY!" :o) I really like that quilt on the cover, too. I hope my copy of the magazine arrives soon!

I was so sorry to read about your friend's son....my heart goes out to her and her family, and I'm keeping them in my prayers.

XOXO,

Cyndi

Jill said...

I received my copy last week and fell in love with Sweet Caroline. I have the fabrics picked out and they are just waiting on my cutting table. Now, if I could just get around to starting it.

My heart goes out to Mary Lou.

LibbiesHome said...

Hi Mary,
I love that little quilt, too! Now I am going to have to go find that magazine today. Might not have time to make the quilt right now, but just looking at it will be a kind of therapy for me right now. :)
Have a nice weekend,
Melissa

Valerie Z said...

I agree, this quilt is wonderful! I need to pick up this magazine and check it out myself! I too would like Mary Lou's address...its hard hearing such sad news. After the horrible weather here in Missouri this week, and the loss of loved ones, it makes you pause and take notice. Take time for yourself this weekend and your family.

Jennifer @ Stitchin' Thyme said...

Hi Mary - I just got my copy today - can't wait to check it out!!

Kathryn D. Duke said...

glad you posted this as I am from NC and would like it too...love your site.
Blessings,
Kathy

I am looking forward to the projects in this magazine.

Robyn of Robyns Nest said...

You are very lucky I'm still waiting for the June issue ! I am in Australia, but the June issue came out on the 30th March in the US it's the 29th of May here & I can't believe I'm still waiting for Junes issue

D. Leigh said...

I, too, fell in love with this pattern in the magazine! Looks like we can have some fun together!

Cindy said...

"Sweet Carolina"....definitely "Quilt Hollow" written all over it. It may just be subtitled "Sew Cindy".

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.

Carrie P. said...

Oh, I am going to have to get that magazine. So cool to see that both girls have something in the magazine. I read both their blogs.

Renea said...

Sweet Carolina is my next project. I love it.

Kathryn D. Duke said...

just bought the magazine last night at Wal Mart...thanks for posting . I am from NC and have always wanted to do the NC Lilly...

Keep It Thimble said...

I am planning to make Sweet Carolina too! Wish we still had Jo's club so we could see each other's quilts. Stay cool and good luck with selling your house. I know someone will come and call completely in love with it - they will probably ask you to leave all the quilts and furnishings behind :).
