SEW cute! I love it! Hopefully I can find a few minutes tonight to grab it at the store!
And the boy one is cute too! THANKS!

Rachel, this quilt is so darling! Great contrast for a baby to look at too. Just found out that a friend's son and DIL are expecting triplets! Wouldn't it be cute to have one of these quilts hanging over each crib?

I think this quilt is great. I think this will be my new baby shower quilt. When I picked my copy of the Magazine this weekend I kept flipping back to this quilt and telling my hubby how cute it was. Thank you for sharing. I like the two bags in this issue as well.

Very cute quilt! Will be looking for this at the store! Unfortunately they are closing the only major book store in our area, so it is hit n' miss at the supermarket.

Adorable! I have already bought my quilting magazine for the month...but maybe I can squeeze another out of the budget!

terrieannie said...

Quilts and More is my absolute favorite quilting magazine nowadays and this is the best issue yet!
I kind of wish they would make it a subscription magazine but the anticipation of waiting for it to show up at the store makes it all the more exciting when it arrives!
I got mine last Friday at Barnes and Noble. It was a great day for me!

miamihoney said...

Congrats! Now I will have to go out and pick one up :)

Clothed in Scarlet said...

So very cool! I get the eletter from All People Quilt from Better Homes and Gardens. When I surf thru the email and saw this I had to come over and say wow! People all across cyber space know your name :o) Way to go! I know you've been published before but still hip hip hooray for you! Have a good one. Sarah

Such a cute quilt and I like the boy version too! Congrats on the great magazine feature. :)

michelle said...

Fabulous!! I bought the magazine yesterday, flipped through it and then went back to this quilt--wondered who created it, and cracked up when I saw that it was you. I should have known--you always produce such wonderful patterns and designs--right up my alley--how did I not guess that this was your work?? silly me. talented you. Fabulous!!

Brenda said...

Congratulations, that is wonderful! I can't wait to see the issue! :)

for some reason these mags have stopped showing up in Perth news stands no one knows when they will come in. Looks like I will have to hunt this one down on the net, cause I love this and I have a little girl who would love this, well done!
