My Magazine Fame!

Does this quilt look familiar to any of you quilters out there in blogland. You may recognize it from the Better Homes and Garden Perfect for Precuts Magazine. Corn Wgaon Quilts in Springville is very fortunate to have it hanging in their shop. The designer of this beautiful quilt just happens to be my good freind. If you don't know Emily of Crazy Old Ladies you should get to know her and her fun patterns. She lives right there in Springville. Notice the binding.
The pattern is called B.Y.O.P. (Build Your Own Plaid). And you can find the directions on page 50. The layout picture of the quilt is done so well and it shows off Emily's great work to detail. If you haven't got a copy of this great magazine you ought to, there are lot's of other great projects in there to use up some of your favorite pre-cuts.Now you are probably wondering where my magazine fame comes in aren't you? Well, I'm not the only person feeling the fame either. Both Mary Ann (from the shop) and I had our hands in on this quilt as well. She was the quilter that did such an awesome job and you guessed it, I was the lucky one to bind it. I have bound many quilts for Emily and I love it. I can't wait for a quilt to get done being quilted just so I can't get right to the binding. Am I the only one crazy like that? I think this is the second one of the many that has shown up in a magazine. Let's hear a hip, hip hooray for three talented ladies. Now that's team work for ya!
If your in the neighborhood of the Corn Wagon, stop by and say hi and to see this quilt in all it's glory. It's more beautiful in person. Really.
