I’m a Cover Girl
NO – fat and fabulous has not put my photo on the cover. 🙂 But I did get the advance copies of the Sept/Oct Issue of Quiltmaker which I knew my design, Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, would be in. But you could have knocked me over with a feather when I pulled them out of the envelope and there it was on the front cover. So here’s the sneak peak….
I can’t take credit for how lovely the quilt looks. I had other commitments so couldn’t make their publishing deadline so it was sewn by Sheri Ruwe and it turned out adorable.
We ended up switching out one of the applique dog blocks for a different one since that block was being used for the sneak peak in the July/Aug issue so as an added bonus I’ll be posting the beginning of September on the my blog the block that was taken out. You could substitute that dog for any in the quilt – it’s a beagle looking dog – or make a matching pillow to go with the quilt.
Thank you Quiltmaker and Thank you EQ — without being able to draw it in EQ I never would have submitted it!
Wow! That’s great to be on the cover! What a fun quilt!
Congratulations! It’s certainly well deserved. The quilt is wonderful. I love that we all know where and how the picture you used of yourself was taken.
Yes – a friend saw the photo and asked where it was taken. ROFLOL — I thought she’d fall of her chair laughing when I described my photo “studio”.
That quilt is just too cute! Congrats Denise 8)
Glad you think so – thanks.
Congratulations. Can’t wait to see the magazine.
Thank you Sara
Although we have not actually met, it is thrilling to “know” someone who is a covergirl! Congratulations Denise. But we really shouldn’t be surprised. Everything you design could be on a magazine cover.
Thank you Peggy! I was definitely surprised.
Congratulations Denise. Cute quilt. I will be sure to pick up that issue. I look forward to the bonus “Beagal” in September as well. Hope this is just the beginning. Your designs are wonderful and should be published.
Thanks much Joanne! There will be a Christmas themed quilt published later too.
I am so glad that I keep my Quiltmaker subscription up to date! Congratulations, Denise! Even though I am a cat lover, this is a great quilt. Wonder which one of my grandchildren would like this one? lol
Thanks Janet! I’m sure someone will want to lay a claim to it! Tho I’m not a cat lover, I’ve got a cat quilt design in reserve so one of these days………..
Dangling the bait? Sounds great!
Always danging bait for you! 🙂
Thank you for the quick peak – my children are all grown up-ish, but I still want to make your quilt. It is just too cute. :0)
I’ve got no children and I still want to make it! 🙂
Adorable! Congrats Denise! Will need to buy that issue when it comes out…..
Your pattern is so cute! I’ll definitely be buying this Quiltmaker issue! Congrats!
Love it! Congratulations! I must purchase that issue!
Love the quilt can’t wait to see it. Also waiting anxiously for the other block. What about a cat block? One family has cats, one dogs.
Congrats on making the cover.
Just wanted to stop by and say congrats on being a “cover girl.”
Received my magazine in the mail a few days ago. Love your quilt.
Thank you Karen!
I just got my magazine. The quilt is soooo cute. Congratulations!
Thank you Sharon!
I thought your quilt was the cutest one in the whole magazine! Well done and congratulations
