WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
I've made my first front cover! It wasn't expected - in fact I didn't even know about it. A friend let me know she'd seen my Pomegranate Wall Hanging Quilt in a sealed pack at the newsagents two weeks ago. Well, I went looking and didn't see a thing. 'hmm' I thought, 'she must be mistaken'. And then I forgot about it. I assumed that if a magazine re-published my project, that they might send me an email just letting me know. And as I hadn't heard anything, I didn't think anymore about it.
Then my DD stumbled across it while she was out of town in a somewhat obscure little newsagency.
'I'm pretty sure it's yours' she said on the phone
'what do you mean, pretty sure? Is it or isn't it?!'
(I mean, it is hanging in our lounge room!)
'Well, it's hard to say without a name on the front cover and its sealed in plastic...I can only see the top bits, I'll buy it anyway'
Oh yes, it's mine!
and it got me to thinking how easily I would have missed this magazine edition and that I've probably had another first front cover - and simply didn't know about it! For Australian readers, this magazine is out now and is sold in a 3x magazine pack for $9.95. It's not in every newsagent's (as I found out when I went around visiting as many as I could think of), but if this is a project you are interested in, it's a great price to pay for it. I haven't actually drafted this pattern for my own pattern shop (yet) and I do routinely get asked for it, so here it is!
It was first published in Patchwork & Quilting, Applique Special, VOL 19 No 3
Unfortunately, I don't know what the year (3 or 4 years ago?) is as it isn't listed anywhere
(has anyone else noticed this about Quilting Magazines?)
What's Your WOW ?
