My Carnival quilt was included in the November/December 2013 issue of Quilty magazine! I made this quilt in the spring of 2013 for my niece Avery, who at the time was just a bun in the oven. After finishing the quilt, I decided on a whim to submit a few pictures of the quilt into the magazine. I'm pretty sure I was shaking as I read the e-mail telling me that my quilt had been accepted!
So, about that quilt...
Carnival features the traditional Rolling Stone block (less commonly known as Squirrel in a Cage), set with sashing that creates a secondary Churn Dash block.
My favourite thing about this quilt was the publishing experience. Next time you create something that you're particularly proud of, I can't encourage you enough to take a stab at getting it published. There are dozens of great quilting and crafting magazines out there and it's really easy to reach out and pitch a project. The worst they can say is no, and when they say yes it's pretty freaking awesome!!
