Today I received a very special squishy in the mail (maimed by the U. S. Postal Service, with their apologies, but contents still intact). It was a bundle of beautiful fat quarters from Quiltmaker Magazine. Why?
Because I am part of the Block Testing Team for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 6!!! Yes, me!!
I hadn't said anything yet because I had not yet received the fine print, but it was enclosed with the fabric. Although I may tell others that I am part of the 100 Blocks Testing Team, I may not post or share pictures with anyone other than Quiltmaker staff until they have a promotion plan ready to launch. I MAY take pictures along the way so that I am ready to post and share online at that time. And I will!!!
I own volumes 2, 3 and 4 of the magazine and love them. My Ghastlies quilt (in progress) is from one of them. My shoes wallhanging (in progress) is from one of them. I plan to make something using the Going Coastal fabric with a pattern from one of them. Back in December when we had a guild challenge to make several blocks from one piece of fabric given to each member of the guild, I made several different blocks from the magazine issues because they were so easy to resize from 12" (finished) to the 9" specified by the guild. Each member got one drawing entry for each block made, and three members took home the blocks. In fact, one block I made was so popular that at last month's meeting the owner came to ask who had done it and where she could find the pattern! So I am an ardent admirer of the magazine and am SO excited to be in on the ground floor for Volume 6!
So stay tuned, I will share info as soon as I'm allowed!
