No – I’m not skipping down the yellow brick road with Toto in tow…. but that is the name QM gave to my latest design to be published in Quiltmaker Magazine – March/April issue.
I really need to get my mail from the mailbox at the end of the parking lot more than once a week — I didn’t know the issue was out yet until one of the TQP ladies said she saw it. And lo and behold, the advance copies were in my mailbox.
It’s always fun (and a surprise) to see what QM does with the design I send them. Quilts get renamed to fit the fabrics they use (or because I can’t come up with a name and ask them to name it), and the fabric colors get changed many times from what I had my EQ image colored in with.
I like the shades of two colors theme going on in this quilt — and it has given me an idea for some batik fabric I have in the stash since I actually haven’t stitched this quilt – but may just need to make my own for my bed. 🙂However to show you how different it started out in my image, here’s the quilt image I sent them.
Using a smaller segment of this quilt with the multicolors I drew, if sections are colored in differently, yield a bit different look…. as shown in the additional two drawings.
So, IF you live in the U.S., and IF you don’t have a subscription already to Quiltmaker Magazine (oh the horror), and would like to be included in the random drawing for a free issue of this magazine, leave a comment below.
