Jazzy Nights

Yep, that’s what we have around here . . Jazzy Nights!  🙂  Not really . . that’s the name of my quilt that’s in the current issue of Quiltmaker magazine.  Click on the link to see a preview.  Except that it’s bright, Jazzy Nights is not my normal quilt design.  It’s easy (which I think most of my patterns are), it’s “no-fault” (points don’t have to be perfect or match), it’s kinda playful and can be made using a lot of scraps.

Two things I want to tell you.  First, the Quiltmaker people are very, very nice to work with.  If you have a design you think might work for their publications (any of them in the Creative Crafts Group), submit it!  You never know what they will want and if they don’t choose your design, it could be because it just doesn’t fit their upcoming issues or they have had or have something very similar coming out soon.  Don’t be disappointed if your design isn’t chosen and what I’ll preach til I can preach no longer . . You never know what might happen if you don’t submit it!

Second thing:  Just because I don’t show what I’m working on doesn’t mean I’m not working.  The design in this magazine issue is one I didn’t share on the blog.  I showed a group of half square triangles and some pieces but I didn’t show much because it needs to be a surprise.  You never know what I’m working on.  Yes, there are surprises in the pipeline.  So please don’t get aggravated at me when I’m not showing enough quilt related content.  Sometimes I just can’t but you don’t know how badly I want to.

You should see the stars I’m working on today!  🙂
