Quilting Arts June/July
I have some news…
A while back I had a tutorial for a portrait quilt on this blog. I later submitted that little quilt for Quilting Arts submission call for all things portrait for their June/July 2011 issue. Holy smokes- it got accepted! I did have to take the tutorial off the blog, but you can see the whole how-to in the current issue of Quilting Arts. I have to say, magazine editors do an amazing job with the layout and photos. The “spread” looks pretty cool.
When I was notified I was accepted- get this- I got a call from Pokey Bolton herself! Craziness! Ms. Bolton, right there on my cell phone.
I’m quite thrilled with how the quilt turned out and so honored to be in such a wonderful, non-traditional publication. And can I just tell you how insanely excited my 8yo was to see his picture IN a magazine?! I’m sure he would have been happier if it was something put out by Marvel or Lego (NOT quilt related) but he was still pretty stoked.
The magazine is on stands now. You’ll have to see all the amazing portraits and techniques to transform fabric into realistic look ‘pictures’.
