Calendar Giveaway Winner + A Glimpse inside the QA December 2011/January 2012 Issue

18 Nov 2011

A huge thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway for a Quilting Arts 2012 calendar. I loved reading your stories about your art quilting memories from 2011! The randomly chosen winner of the calendar is kjheaverlo. If you could please email me at eseeburger@interweave.com by December 16tquilting arts, bird quilt, cynthia st. charlesh I will get your calendar in the mail. And please do check back soon if you didn't win; we have more giveaways in the works!

I'd also like to share how excited I am about the December 2011/January 2012 issue of Quilting Arts. I adore the cover by Cynthia St. Charles. Her piece "Chickadees" was a Judge's Choice quilt from our 2012 Calendar Contest. There is a gallery of Judge's Choice quilts in this issue of Quilting Arts.

If forced to choose, I'd have to say that one of my fondest art quilt memories of 2011 was the day all the Quilting Arts calendar entries arrived at our offices. There was such a spectrum of techniques, motifs, and talent represented. So to kick the weekend off right I thought I'd give you a glimpse inside the December 2011/January 2012 issue and post another Judge's Choice quilt from the newest issue of Quilting Arts. It is by Deb Sorem and she has written a lovely description of her inspiration for this piece which is included alongside her quilt in the magazine. The magazine goes on sale on December 6th.

I hope you have a great weekend filled with all things quilting!
