It's Here!

When I went into the shop to work on Friday, Melisa told me she'd received an order for my latest table runner pattern that was in May's issue of McCall's Quick Quilts. It gets to subscribers in different parts of the country at different times, so we didn't realize it was out yet. That was exciting. By Saturday, she'd received 4 orders. It never stops being fun to see my designs in print and how they photograph and diagram the quilts...or to see what parts of the country we send kits to. Of the first four, I only knew that one went to Michigan and one to California. When I saw Pam last night, she said she cut more kits yesterday because they had already mailed out 11 of them! :)

If you can make out the green print in the bottom left corner of the cover, it says, "New series - Seasonal Table Runners"...that's me. The article is called "a table for all seasons: Spring" and they go on to say, "fresh dining decor as the seasons change". On the next page they lay out their plan: "In this and the next 3 issues of Quick Quilts, we'll feature a table runner for every season, beginning with this lovely celebration of spring. Shown left to right are previews of summer, winter, fall and spring (this issue's project).

These are all my table runners and they are the same construction, but use different fabrics and different center designs to create a different "mood" for each season. The article is on pages 43-45.

Well, at least it's a better picture. You've been busy updating since your last one that I looked at. You never cease to amaze even me. I wish I had time to do as much as you do????

Once again, I am so proud of you and glad for your success. Every time you have made one of these, I have thought it was the cutest one yet, apparently McCall's agreeds!
