Square City in McCalls Quilting!!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010
i've been waiting so long to show you this quilt!
{ i did show a few sneak peeks! }
here it is... my square city quilt!!
fabric is hunky dory
by chez moi
for moda fabrics


remember back in october when i showed this picture...
of me rushing to finish binding on the airplane flight to quilt market?...
well it was the binding for square city!
& it's available in the May/June issue of McCalls Quilting!!



and not only is the quilt pattern featured...
but so is an article i wrote about my mom!!
{ see the cover above.. "get your mom to quilt" }



since i finished it on the airplane..
i didn't have a chance to take any photos of it before i left.
so last minute i attempted to try & have some photos of it taken while moda set up their booth... lets just say there was a lot of laughing... but no good shots of the quilt!!

i should have my quilt back in a week or so...
and then i'll take lots of photos!!

here is the back.
with my label pieced into a scrappy strip on the back
this quilt ended up getting hung in the moda booth..
even though i had no idea that it would be!
{ thanks modalissa! }


i hope you love it as much as i do!
oh & i did order a bunch of copies... so as soon as they arrive they will be up for sale in the shop!

kate spain said...

Blue Is Bleu said...

Yay! You rock!! I love that you wrote about your mum!! Btw is that the quilt that got hung upside down?

lissa said...

What a great secret! It seems like forever ago. One thing I think is funny is how alll the MOMS are trying to get their daughters to sew and you are doing the reverse. Wise beyond your years.

quiltcetera said...

Congrats Julie!! That is REALLY exciting!!

Shawn said...

Anne Sutton said...

sheri said...

Congratulations Julie! I am so proud of you! Your mom has a very talented and darling daughter... Beautiful quilt!

Love you, Market Mom

Katie said...

Awesome job Julie!! I can't wait to see it in print. So about the whole website mishap and your site being blocked...apparently my company's network got hacked last week and they started blocking EVERYTHING. I guess 'jaybird' raised a red flag and was categorized as porn. Too funny!

Amy - Park City Girl said...

Congrats! How nice to be able to share completely now too :)

Sandy said...

Ok, I need to clear up an urban legend... MOM DOES SEW, she does not quilt, Mom has been sewing since she was about 10 yrs old and can create just about anything.. and loves to customize embroidery.. Quilting may be in my future.. and I could not be any prouder of you jaybird for finding your "own" talents!!
Love
MOJ
