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.
