Sparkle Quilt 2, and an Instagram repost from MSQC! :)

My ego may never need stroking again. To top this amazing week off, Missouri Star Quilt Company reposted my photo of my finished Sparkle quilt. If you’ve read this blog at all, you’ll quickly see how often I use their patterns. The tutorials that Jenny puts out have been so inspirational for me. I find them so well done and reachable for a newbie like myself. I am literally fan girling here over her (or their Instagram person ) reposting my photo. *sigh* Amazing.

We’re in a Magazine!?

My Instagram @sewsillymomblog

When you first start out quilting, there’s a plethora of resources to gain skills and inspiration from. Some of my favorites are magazines. One of my favorites of those, is American Quilter. Imagine my excitement to open up the latest issue today and see my daughter and her quilt, as well as my quilt, featured in an article in that very publication.

It.Was.Amazing. I have been sharing the news everywhere, so my apologies. The entire thing began with a writer spotting my alphabet quilt at the Heritage Park Festival of Quilts this past May and contacting me. Such a sweet lady, and she asked further questions about Little’s quilt and the children’s display. Fast forward to today, and she has photographed and featured my quilts on her blog, and now written this article where several quilts from Calgary and the Festival are being showcased for the entire reading community for AQ. So thrilling. Here’s a link to Kim’s blog.  http://www.kimhansonquilts.com/quilts-in-the-summer-chief-mountain-and-beautiful-waterton-lakes-national-park/
