Webcents

Imagine my surprise when a few people emailed me this weekend saying that they had seen a version of my Garden Paths quilt on the cover of WebCents. Turns out WebCents is a new publication put out by FabShopNews and Garden Paths made the premiere issue!

It was sewn up in batiks and I love how it looks!  Garden Paths is my best seller, although Blossoms and Bejeweled aren't far behind.  I think it is because Garden Paths uses a jelly roll in an unusual way, as Blossoms does with a stack of 10'' squares.  I can't quite figure out Bejeweled.  I didn't know if there was a market for it, with all those yo-yos, but I loved it anyway (with the vertical design it looks fantastic on a bed) and decided to publish it.  Apparently there are a lot of people like me out there who like to have something to do in carpool lines and doctor's offices etc., because it has done really well so far.  Thanks, you all!

Happy sewing, everyone!

Very cool and congrats though I would have thought that they would have let you know in advance if they were going to publish you.

I LOVE Bejeweled, the pattern is setting on my bedside table to look at each night before I go to bed. That quilt will be all mine as soon as I can get a few more charity quilts knocked out. Not really looking forward to all the yoyo's but what the heck they are oh so cute I just gotta have them all. Congrats on the new cover!!

Congratulations. I would be so proud of that! P.S., I think I like Bejeweled the best but Garden Pats is cute in the brights.
