Well, I can’t keep this to myself… so the cat is out of the bag a bit.

I am shaking with excitement! If you are a MQG member, you received the January update email today. One of the items in the email is an ability to vote between 2 ‪#‎QuiltCon16‬ magazine covers. The blue quilt on the right is near and dear to my heart (*wink wink*), and if you are so moved I would appreciate your vote! You don’t have to be a member to vote, link below! ‪#‎WhatAnHonor‬‪ #‎ShakingWithExcitement‬ ‪#‎IHadNoIdea‬ ‪#‎MorningSurprise‬

I am also very excited to share that the red and white quilt is by Silvia @A Stranger View. I will be thrilled for whichever one of us is voted in. Please vote with your heart and not just because I am excited. 😉

    Congratulations! What excitement! I have spent some time gazing at both covers. I really really really wish they had done the layout on the cover with your quilt better. I guess it has something to do with how large the quilt is on the cover and needing to show the edge of the design, but they left themselves very little room for the text they wanted to incorporate. So, that’s on them and not you, but it bothers me. I think they could have staged both quilts better, too. Is it weird that I want to vote for your quilt cover just because it has that “Make This Quilt” button? LOL. Congrats again! I am so happy for you! PS – The photo really brings out the amazing quilting on your quilt!

  5. That’s so awesome, Yvonne! When I saw the e-mail from MQG, there was something about that Cover Girl blue quilt that seemed terribly familiar. This means you’re officially blog famous – when people can recognize your work even when it’s not on your blog! Way to go!

  6. Yvonne, Congratulations! I literally am jumping up and down clapping for you! I am so thrilled for you and you deserve this honor and of course the COVER! YIPPEE! I definitely went and voted for you and your magnificent quilt! Oh my goodness, what exactly are you feeling? Is this your first cover quilt? How many quilt patterns have you had published in magazines or books? Another question….Does the magazine come and ask you or do you have to send in photos and a form? I really do hope that you win! Please keep us informed! Which by the way…when will you find out and when will it be published? This will be one magazine issue I will be buying! Congratulations once again!

  7. I voted the moment I got it in my mail. Congrats and good luck!

  15. Renee says:

    I’m super excited to just see it on the cover for voting! I do wish their styling of both quilts had been better, and that the text layout was better on yours. But over all your quilt got the better photo, and I think it compliments the text colors better than the red and white one.

  16. Congratulations!!! This is exciting.
