Turn to Page 19

My newest copy of Quilter's Newsletter came in the mail a few days ago.  

A quick check of the cover told me that the pictures of the winning quilts were in this issue.
Turning to Page 19 I found my quilt "Dahlia Revisited".  It is still so incredible to me to see one of my quilts in any magazine, much less one that has been such a leader in our industry for 45 years.
I think the colors are pretty true to the original.
I haven't found a permanent home for this yet.  I may have to re-do some things in my studio.
I hope you can find a copy - it's a good article.  And I still feel humbled to have placed in the top five.  Hope you all are staying warm today - our sun is shining and things have warmed up a bit here.  I think it was 31 last night.
I'm working on the memory quilts today - trying to get ready for quilting.
Happy stitching,
Karen

Yay you, Karen! Isn't it fun to see yourself in print? The purples in this quilt are smashing, so it's good that the print magazine was true to those colors. Now remind me... what did you win? You must be into some good FMQ these days. Hope you're enjoying yourself, and getting ready for a happy Thanksgiving spent with family. Blessings.
