Sorry I missed yesterday - went to a party in the afternoon and then lost track of time.
Today I have something special to share with you.
The other day I told you a little about my start in quilting. One thing I left out was the wonderful online guild that I found. While hunting on the internet I found The Quilt Pattern Magazine (www.quiltpatternmagazine.com). This electronic magazine is phenomenal. Once I subscribed and saw how great it was, I bought all of the back issues. TQPM celebrates its 7th anniversary in January. Each issue has about 7 patterns. There are usually 2 or 3 BOMs going on. Usually there is a pieced, an applique and a mystery but that's not a guarantee. The one thing you can count on is patterns that are fully tested. It is nice to know that you don't have to worry about them.
The reason I'm talking about TQPM today is that I have a pattern coming up in the January 2018 issue. It is the 11th pattern of mine that TQPM that I have published. I have another 4 scheduled in 2018. As a bonus, you can get a discount on a subscription using the secret code CDMQ at http://www.quiltpatternmagazine.com/program/S/?D=CDMQ.
Now for a look at the design. It's called 'Practice Makes Perfect' because you'll have the chance to practice making strip sets, half-square triangles and flying geese.
I try to make each of my patterns with 2 different combinations of fabric. Changing the fabric can give a pattern a totally new look. Here is a picture of my second version of 'Practice Makes Perfect' - doesn't it look fun?
Well, that's it for today - hope to see you again tomorrow.
