I have some magazine news to share!
Some months ago I was asked my Quiltmaker magazine to submit a block for Volume 4 of the very popluar 100 Block's magazine issue. The good news is the magazine is about to arrive in stores and I can finally show you my submission.
I have a pin to prove it, and it's huge I tell you.
Both the pin, and the magazine.
Here I am, day one of Quilt Market seeing the magazine for the first time - awesome fun.
I guess I don't have to explain that at the time I was working on the block my head was filled with all things Woodland-ish. In fact, I was feeling like doing a Rainbow Happy Dance - it is no surprise to me that is what appeared on the paper when I began sketching.
This is what I mean.
Yes, they are dancing shrooms - with sweet little faces to make you smile.
You will also find a family of little birds taking a rest on the rainbow.
There is nothing better than a happy dance, except sharing it with friends.
Each block in the issue (all 100 of them) are 12" square and comes complete with stitching, piecing and/or technique instructions. It's crammed full of inspiration, a must have.
Be sure to pop over the the Quiltmaker site and follow the 100 Block's blog hop, each day a new list of designers featured in the issue will show their block and give you a little insight into the inspiration behind the design. The best part is each day there are prizes to be won from the Quiltmaker - Quilty Pleasures site and fun to be had for us all.
Sooo....If you would like to win a copy right here at Cinderberry Stitches, be sure to leave a comment below. You have until November 11 when I will randomly pick one name and the lovely team at Quiltmaker magazine will post a copy of the issue your way - yay!
If you would like to make my block Rainbow Happy Dance, be sure to buy Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Winter 2011 / Volume 4 online or in your local store....did I mention it's a collectors edition?
Happy dance indeed!
