Sampler Quilts Magazine
I have a copy of almost every thing where my name has been published. It is a small box, but still exciting. I was missing at least two?magazines. Sampler Quilts is one of them. The one above is the very first quilt magazine to include one of my quilts. My closest friend had a copy!!! Can you believe that? She bought the copy of Sampler Quilts when it came out and made her very first quilt from the block patterns. When I visited her, I grabbed these?pictures and will keep it in the virtual log of the articles here on the PRESS page.
This was published in Fall of 2001, I think. The quilt was finished by December 2000. Phew, Throw Back Thursday #tbt on a SUNDAY!
If you’ve seen my lecture, you’ll recognize this as the Lion King Quilt. It was a painful sampler to make. Every block was cut and designed individually. A couple blocks are originals and the rest are from patterns/internet.
The directions to make each block are on newsprint in the back of the magazine, but the page where I’m featured actually is a quilting glossary of sorts.
I don’t think I’d make blue, brown and yellow sampler quilt on-point these days, in 2015, but you never know.
