The Great Outdoors Island Batik Blog Hop Week 2 & Another Quilt Published!

I hope you enjoyed seeing the amazing creativity and sewing prowess of last week's ambassadors! I am getting excited to show you what I've been working on, and at the end of this little post, you'll find another sneak peek. My turn comes up later next week; it seemed quite far away, and now it's nearly here! Remember there are lots of giveaways to be won as well, both at the bloggers' posts and at the Island Batik blog.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch... Here is another little teaser of my quilt. It's one of my two 'main crushes' this week:

This is the Dear William line. In last week's blog hop post, I showed you a teaser of some of the units, and asked if you may have an idea what I was making. If you thought hmm, maybe her Freefall or Windfall pattern? You were close, but nope. Here's this week's hint: it's not my pattern. 😉

In case you didn't see it on Instagram, my second but really my #1 Main Crush is something I can finally let out: one of my quilt designs is in Modern Patchwork! You may have noticed the new thumbnail on the sidebar under 'published in'...
Clicking the link or the image above will take you to their website where you can purchase the magazine. You can find it in your LQS too, I have heard, and it will be on newsstands August 28! Below is a screenshot from their site; I haven't received my complimentary copy yet, but it's on its way with my quilt, back to me! It's a 56" square quilt.
More on the quilt once I'm back from vay-cay. Comments remain closed while I am lolling about, wine glass in hand, doing nothing. LOL
