I absolutely loved designing and making these 2 little baby quilts ;) It remember it being such a leap to submit the designs to a magazine. It was so very scary and exhilarating, all at the same time ;) I was over the moon when they were accepted and I got to start making them up!! Natalia Bonner did an amazing job on the quilting on both of these quilts. I think it is funny that I was living in Indiana at the time and she was up in Utah County. Two moves later and now we are both in Southern Utah and only 35 minutes away from each other, so fun!! Oh, and as you can see, I have always loved applique from the very start of my quilting journey ;)
Hugs to Enjoy are now hanging on the wall behind the long arm in the quilting studio. I smile each time I see them there, and realize what a big step they were in the journey that has brought me here today ;) So I can not even begin to express how amazing it is to have them featured in this wonderful collection of McCall's Best. Such an honor!!
You can see all of the quilts in this special The Best of McCalls Quilting Issue right here and I have to say, I am in some amazing company, so honored :) There is also a cute little video on facebook that shows all of the quilts in detail!! This issue is now available on newstands, stores, and also at McCalls Quilting ;) And I just want to say a huge Thank You to McCall's for including me in this wonderful publication. Once again, I find myself on Cloud 99 :)
Thank you for popping in today and each day ;) I am grateful each and every day that I get to share my quilting journey with each of you ;) Happy Quilting!!
