Celebrate the years with Connecting Stars!

It’s June 5th, and do you know what that means? It’s the day my quilt, Connecting Stars, is on newsstands in the latest issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine.  Yippee! This day signifies a few months of sewing and pattern writing, then a few months of waiting to see the awesome photos they take of the quilt, and then a few more months of waiting to show it to all of you! I love seeing the quilt “in the wild” so to speak.  It’s exciting for me to see how they stage the quilt to take the magazine photos.  And I also love getting to make all sorts of new friends who call in to place an order for the kit.  The quilting world is really a small world after all when we get calls from all over the country.

Some of you may remember the original quilt that I made using this pattern.  I first designed this quilt for our shop’s 25th anniversary.  That’s why there are only 25 stars in the quilt.

I hope you enjoy this issue of American Patchwork & Quilting and be sure to check out all of the other great quilt patterns that they have in between the pages.  Happy quilting~ Katie
