Mail Mania

I went to the mail box, and what did I find?  My new issue of American Patchwork and Quilting has arrived!  Early, even.  I have been waiting for this.

 It's the April 2011 issue (on newsstands Feb 1) and I know what is inside!  At least I know part of it.



 There it is.  Around the Town by Jill Finley of Jillily Studio.  Right there on page 57.
I haven't got the quilt back from the editors at APQ yet, but when I do, I will post some close-ups of the quilting and details.  Actually, there are several photos in the magazine, too.  My machine quilter (Tori) did a wonderful job, and I would like you to see it.

I better go put everything away--two posts in one day is probably a record!

Yes the pattern is in the magazine. IF you can't find it, I will have a few extra copies to sell on my site. I'll post them when they are here.

I got my copy in the mail today and was flipping through it and saw your adorable pattern. My first thought was I had to go to your blog and tell you I saw it and how awesome it is. Nicely done! How exciting!
