The latest edition of QUILTmania is out, and I feel so honored to have my Crossing the Pond quilt featured in their magazine.
I love the way they choose to photograph my quilt. The ship on the nightstand is a very special touch, adding so much interest. The fabric line is called Journey to America by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics. Click HERE, and you will go to Judie Rothermel's online shop.
I absolutely love the quilt on the cover of the magazine. Click HERE for a link to QUILTmania. This edition has many, many beautiful quilts included. It is real eye candy, and is fun to read cover to cover. The magazine also includes the directions for the featured quilts.
We treated ourselves to a picnic lunch at Lake Alpine yesterday. It was a beautiful day to be outside, soaking up the sun, the beauty, and solitude of the lake. We were quite alarmed at the low level of the lake. Yes, there is still snow around, but we would be surprised if the snow melt is enough to raise the level of the lake a measurable amount. The lake level is what we usually see in August.....not May.
Talk about tenacity, these trees are growing out of this huge boulder. How do they get their nourishment? How can their root system hold on for dear life during the hard winter up at this high elevation? It's a mystery.
Where we go, Mazey goes. She loved watching the ducks float by, and the birds flying overhead. She's an outdoor girl like her mom.
It's back to work for me today on the BOM for Marcus Fabrics. The borders are on, the backing is made, and I need to load it on my long arm. I will do minimal marking on it today for my machine quilting. I think I know what I'm going to do, but I may change my mind when it goes under the needle.
