Australian Patchwork & Quilting Showcase Special
Well, hello, Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine! Aren’t you looking all sexy in your appliquéd avant garde affair!?** But wait, what’s that, you have a surprise to tell me? Oh really? I’m in the magazine? Me? Noooo! Oh. OH. OOOOOH. I see it now. How could I have missed that big yellow sticker across your chest! So divine! You flatter me, with your talk of “amazing masterpieces!” That’s what I like about you, always straight to the point. Impeccable taste AP&Q, impeccable taste!
But for real, WTF. That’s what I said out loud in my office on Monday when this arrived on my desk. Over the top, but I will gladly take it! I’m just all a bit shell shocked that my name is on the cover, in bold print, in a yellow circle, in conjunction with the word “masterpiece,” keeping company with seven other incredible artists. I’m honoured, blessed, and grateful to be here! Thank you AP&Q and Stephanie Squadrito for writing the most amazing article about my quilt No Value Does Not Equal Free.
As an aside, I entered this quilt into QuiltCon last week. Concurrently, I also signed up to be a member of the MQG. I know, I took my sweet time, didn’t I? Well, I told you a few weeks ago that I was setting some new quilt goals for myself. Once those goals are set, ain’t nothin’ stoppin this diva! QuiltCon entries are due on 30 November, and then it’s all in the hands of the selection committee. I’ve never submitted to QuiltCon before, but here’s to rocking a glass of champagne in Pasadena 2016!
**That gorgeous quilt on the cover is Pandemonium by Robyn McDonald.
