On the 6th day of Christmas Stampington gave to me...Art Quilting Studio and Sew Somerset!!!

I'm super excited today as I just received one the best Christmas gifts ever:
Art Quilting Studio...and I'm on the Cover!!!!!

A while ago I made some art quilts for the magazine but I never ever dream about being on the cover... and when I saw it in the website I couldn't believe my eyes... so I wait until I got my magazine to share the great news!

The article is basically a tutorial on how to make those art quilts using your own images, but I decided that I'll sell a limited edition run of prints on fabric in my shop in case you want to make them with the Fridas ;) And of course you'll have to get the magazine to read the full article :P

The other gift I got was Sew Somerset. I love this magazine and as you know I love to incorporate stitches into my work.


I have two articles here.
One is about free motion stitching on paper using ATC cards and fabric.

And the other is about mixing free motion stitched collages with beeswax.
So, if you want to learn more about those techniques you know what you have to do. Check out the magazines and let me know what you did with those techniques ;)


I'll post more about the Christmas swap this afternoon! I'm also going to update the shop with the prints on fabric and I'll let you know when they're ready...

I'm still jumping with joy! Wohooo!!!!

Danita, I discovered this magazine online early this morning, and was so excited for you! I wonder, "How does it feel to be on the cover??" You truly have had an amazing and inspiring 2009. Congratulations! (Now I am finally going to get a new sewing machine so I can do more of what I love to do, and learn techniques from you and your articles!) Thank you for sharing. ~Kathy
