I'm In Print!

I'm totally stoked to announce that I have an article in the April/May 2010 issue of Quilting Arts, along with photos of three of my little quilts and several surface designed fabrics. The article, titled Let the Fabric Speak for Itself, is about designing quilts around cool handmade fabrics, rather than using fabric to represent a preconceived idea.

This is my first time in print in my modern artistic era...the first time was years ago, I had a piece and instructions in Carol Wilcox Wells' first beadweaving book. Anyhow, I'm delighted to be among the fabulous artists included in this issue of QA. If you don't subscribe, you'll have to find a copy somewhere!

Goodness me, this is spectacular! I think the local bookshop gets this magazine.

This morning one of the comment/password was "connic" and I thought it's a great way to express the way you live and what you make!

This is Connic, Connie!

Looks gorgeous from here - will get my hands on a copy! Yes, those of us who start from the fabric never know where it will lead us. Great idea for an article.
