On your newsstands now...

Here's a photo of "A Vintage Christmas", the quilt that I designed and pieced specifically for the 2014 issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects" magazine which is now available in stores, shops and newsstands.

My friend Alice Chancey did the custom quilting.  Isn't it amazing?



I've incorporated my three favorite things when it comes to designing and making a quilt...patchwork, embroidery and wool applique. 

I'm thrilled with the set up and the photography. What a wonderful group of gals to work with.  They are all so thorough, professional and above all else, friendly and ever so positive.

Now I can't wait for the Spring 2015 issue to come out because I have another project in that issue as well!

Life is sooooo darn good!



Happy stitching!

Looks delicious, Kaaren. Can't wait to see more. I so hope my local market still carries this magazine. I noticed when I was in last week that they have dramatically cut back their magazine selection and at the time I thought, "They'd better still carry my favorite." If not, I will make the 30 minute drive through the canyon to get to the nearest shop that carries it. I will have this magazine! *LOL* Looks like a wonderful design! And I love the way they have displayed it in the photo.
