Cover Girl
No not Myra or myself but our quilt has made the cover of Quilts and more!
Many months ago we were asked to submit some designs to Jill, the editor of Quilts and more, using RJR fabrics, So you sew fun too! collection. This was one of those moments were Myra and I needed to "step out of the box". This collection was bolder and brighter than we had ever worked with before. But...you know what, it has made us turn a corner in our designing process AND as it turns out "Exclamation" is one of our favorite quilts!! So we made the quilt and sent it on it's way...then Jill called and asked if we could design some coordinating pillows. You will see those pillows inside the magazine. (I can't give away all the secrets - run out and buy a copy!)

Don't be scared to try something new...I can say that...we did it and it turned out to be a great experience, a new page in our career. We have been in something like 14-15 magazines, but never a cover. Some of you have emailed us already to send congrats our way and many thanks for that.

Today I am working on the next project for Quilts and more using our Cape Cod collection, it doesn't have a definite name yet, but I can say it's pretty and soft. Simplicity has kind of been our thing lately. I will sneak a picture of it when it's a little more complete.

I know what you mean. It's so easy to stay in your comfort zone, but every time we step outside the square we never regret it - why don't we do it more often?! I love an old quote that says "new shoes look smarter but old shoes are more comfortable". Anyway, we all need a good nudge every so often!!!

Cheers, Fer48 (aka Lonnie Girl)
