Do you subscribe to Generation Q Magazine? I love their magazine, and I have since it came out. It is slightly smaller than your standard size magazine, but it is jam packed with great patterns and articles. They also have a fun regular feature where they draw part of a quilt block, just a few simple lines, and ask readers to send in submissions of how they would finish the block. They usually show two or three entries in the next issue. It is so fun to see how something can inspire two people to head in completely opposite and beautiful directions.
You may be asking yourself, why is Melissa blogging about Generation Q Magazine today? Well, today the 2016 Spring issue is hitting newsstands and I’m one of the designers featured with a never before seen pattern! So head to your local retailer (for me that would be Barnes and Noble) and pick up your copy, this is what you are looking for:
This quilt is called Fade In Fade Out and was originally designed for a black and white challenge. I loved this design and decided that instead of submitting it to the exhibit, I would submit it to Generation Q Magazine instead, I was so excited when they accepted me. For the exhibit I ended up designing and submitting a different quilt – Hypnotic Eye and that one was ultimately accepted into the exhibit so it was like winning twice!
The quilt was given a beautiful photograph for the magazine, I am so grateful to their professional photographer, she did a beautiful job!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
Tomorrow my long arm will be set up (I picked up the machine on Saturday) and I will be posting photos on Thursday for you!
