I have always liked American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, and have been a subscriber in the past, though not for the last couple years. So I was a little bit surprised when I received a copy of their latest issue in the mail yesterday. An early Christmas gift from my in-laws, perhaps ?
Once I found a few minutes, I started reading. Well, I almost fell down from my chair when I saw this tip published:
There is a typo in my name, but yes, that is me. I completely forgot about sending this tip - that was at least 2-3 years ago. I came up with that idea while working on this quilt for my mom:
Now, here is the full disclosure:
- I forgot about the tip since submitting it, and I have never included a quiz with any of my other gifted quilts.
- In fact, although I did write down the quiz for my mom’s quilt, I don’t think I ended up actually including it when I gave her the quilt.
- Oh and that quilt wasn't technically a scrap quilt - most of the fabrics were newly purchased!
And a Sewing Space Tip...
Since we are on the topic of tips, I remember also submitting this one: My iron and radio are plugged in to the same outlet, which is operated by a switch. If the music is on, so is the iron. It is easy for me to remember to turn off the iron as I leave the room, since it is the same as turning the music off.
My tip was not published - someone beat me to it with something fairly similar - can't remember what exactly. So, am I following that tip? The truth is that soon after I wrote that, I reorganized my sewing room, which resulted in the radio being located at the end of the room. This said, my iron and sewing machine are plugged in to a power bar operated by the same switch as the main light in the room. Either way, it works.
Well, that's it for my moment of quilty fame. Now, I am waiting for the hand-picked gift...
