Have you had your WOW moment for the day yet?  I'll admit that it's a bit early, but after my walk in the forest - there's always a WOW moment.

But my WOW moment last week was going to the store and finding a magazine with MY project in it.  I've been published before.  Doesn't matter - each article or pattern is still a WOW for me.

Here are the "official" pictures from the magazine.  (Used with permission by All People Quilts). Made with Northcott Colorworks Concepts coordinates. By the way - they named the pattern.

Fall Issue 2016 of Quilts and More

And that's the magazine you'll find the pattern in.  It truly is my favourite bag pattern. It's a culmination of many techniques I've dealt with over the years including style of handles, linings and interfacings and all is revealed in this pattern.

The one thing you have to keep in mind is that once you provide a pattern to the magazine, they can and will make changes to fit their publication standards.  Not too worry - I don't think much was changed.

 There's the designer name - me!

Designer Name - me!!!!

There will be a couple more coming - they are already at the publishers. Just waiting for the magazines to be released. I'll let you know all about it when they are out.

One of them is Christmas and it's a tad too early to think about that yet!

Don't forget to check out QuiltSocial today.  Even if you're not in the market for a sewing/embroidery machine, this Designer EPIC will knock your socks off. There are tons of tips for general sewing and today is a tutorial on Quarter Square Triangles. Enjoy!!!!

Can't remember if I put the link in for yesterday's QuiltSocial - if not, here it is.

On that note, I'm out of here.

Have a super day!



  1. I picked up the magazine at WalMart in Brockville yesterday. For those looking for it, I found it on the little magazine rack back in the craft section not on the large magazine rack.

    1. AH - I always forget about that rack in the craft section! I did find mine in the main rack, but who knows! Thanks for the tip

  2. Congratulations on another publication, Elaine! That's fantastic! The patchwork version is my fave. And the tote does look like a handy bag to have. Love the fabrics!

    1. Thanks Lorna! It's a VERY handy tote. You can load tons of stuff in it! Elaine

  3. Ihave mine!:) Now I wonder if anyone still collects autographs? and how would I contact the celebrity;) for one?;) ;)

    1. OMG! You're too funny! You're supposed to be packing!
