It was a busy year but 2019 looks to be busier. I am hoping to keep you better informed of all that is going on. To begin with, I want you to be aware of what occurred in 2018. In this post I'm going to share my publications.
I had five patterns published in The Quilt Pattern Magazine (TQPM). In January was my pattern Practice Makes Perfect. The first 2 pictures below are of that pattern. The next shot is of Union Stars which was published in March. This was a collaborative effort with my online quilting BFF, Joanne Maner. The second version of Union Stars is still waiting for the quilting to be finished. (It is on my list but the list never seems to get any shorter.) Also in the March issue was my article Binding With Accent Flange Tutorial.
The May through August issues included the installments of my Intersections mystery. Spoiler alert - the tropical and Christmas versions of Intersections are shown below. I pieced the Christmas version along with other quilters on Pattern Pastiche which is the private online community for subscribers to TQPM.
The July issue included m pattern Star Shine. I couldn't decide on a color palette so I made both a Spring and an Autumn version. For some reason I don't have a picture of the Autumn version. I will try to remedy that before my next post.
That bring me to my last pattern for 2018, Over Easy. I have a 2nd top for Over Easy waiting it's turn to be quilted. No picture of the top so I'll try to get that before next time too. In October I joined the staff of TQPM as a pattern formatter. Starting with Star Shine, I have been formatting my own patterns for publication in TQPM using CorelDraw. Now I am also formatting patterns form other designers for publication. I have learned some things through this process that I wouldn't have otherwise so I am finding this arrangement to be very educational.
Well, that's it for my publications in 2018. I'll be back soon with more about my 2018 activities..
