I just wanted to share my Crossed Canoes quilt that is in the current issue of Quilt Magazine Oct/Nov 2012. I used my Dilly Day fabrics for this quilt and it has a wonderful summer time feel to it. I love the nautical setting Quilt magazine used for photographing the quilt!
Looking at the Quilt magazine cover, it is hard to believe but we are now starting to think about fall, back-to-school and hopefully some cooler temperatures! This has been a hot summer, I am really looking forward to the cooler temperatures! I am a bit blue because my son will leave next week to go back to college and it brings my summer to a close a little early. It was nice having him home, but I know he is ready to get back and I have plenty to keep me busy.
The new magazine, Quilt-it Today is rolling right along. The first issue was turned in on the 3rd and will head to the printers in a week. After that, the first issue will be out the end of September! I can't wait to see it in print. Things have been very exciting learning all about publishing, layout, photography and the behind the scenes of putting together a magazine. We have started working on the next issue that follows, Sew-it Today and that title will be out the end of October. From there, the two titles will alternate each month, each packed with projects that are geared for beginning to intermediate quilters and sewers.
I hope your summer can linger on a bit longer before the hustle and bustle of fall and school activities start back up. Enjoy your time and savor the days. I am sure there will be days this winter that I will wish for one of these hot days again.
