My friend, Darlene, who missed our annual trek to Paducah for the AQS show due to illness, has been published in the June issue of AQS magazine! Woo Hoo!!!! Three years ago one of Darlene’s quilts, Meet Me in St Louis, was accepted into the Paducah AQS show. I was a proud friend, let me tell you. Her quilt caught the eye of the AQS editors and the rest is history. Check it out:
The magazine in on newsstands now…..of course I knew about this for a while and even checked in with Darlene’s editor while I was in Paducah to see if the plan to have it in the June issue was still a go. They also included a nice bio.
Nice shout out for our guild 🙂 Also from our guild in this issue is Suzanne Marshal’s wall hanging, Echoing Spring, winner of Best Wall Hand Workmanship…..weeeeeeeeeee!
I’ve gotten a couple more First Saturday blocks done and the last paper pieced tree before I start over doing them with scrappy lights for the background. The first PP trees will be orphans 🙁
