This was exciting news! My quilt "Blue Willow" was in The Quilter Magazine. They did a photo spread from the quilt show A Quilter's Gathering and included mine. Most of the quilts they shot were the ribbon winners, all beautiful and I'm glad I saw them in person. I did not win a ribbon at the show so I feel kind of lucky they included my quilt. The quilt did win 2nd place in the Large Wall Quilts category at my guilds show this past weekend.
My Quilt is on the bottom left, I am "friends" with some of these artists on Facebook and follow their blogs. Really amazing work!
This was the piece I donated to the Auction for my guilds quilt show. It is the 4th in what has turned out to be a series. Mainly because when I sewed the strips together they ended up being 44" x 40". The inspiration is from a photograph Kevin took of the Mumford River in Uxbridge, MA. You can see the other quilts in this series here and here.
I quilted this one on my frame with my Bernina 440 QE using my BSR foot. I haven't used that much - I think I need to bring it in for an update or maybe it's user error? I was pretty pleased with the results but I still get some skipped stitches when I use it.

Using up every piece of the strip, I took the waste I cut off the tree line to create another one for a postcard.
Update on the Sage and Brown Quilt....It is done and this is how it will look when we start using it this summer. It is still too cold around here but come May, we will be using it regularly. It won a "Chairman's" ribbon at the quilt show....I think that is very special. Whomever gave it to me knows how long it took and what a milestone it was to finish, thank you!
