Crazy Quilt Gatherings coming soon

(Thanks Debbie :-)
This is the cover for the Premiere issue of Crazy Quilt Gatherings magazine which will be available for purchase online March 1st.
I will put a link on my sidebar when I release it for sale. Please be kind, this is my first endeavor for anything like this. For those who know me, yes my knees are shaking daily,LOL. I couldn't pass up a chance to showcase crazy quilting and all things related in paper form on a regular basis with the offer of a self published magazine from the great people of MagCloud.

I want to thank each of the wonderfully generous and talented ladies who contributed to the premiere issue. You certainly filled this issue with a variety of beautiful and inspiring projects that I know will be most welcomed and appreciated by all. My only regret is that the pages are not waterproof because there will be drooling I'm sure.
A special thank you to my editor Terri Takacs for helping me pull this together. Any mistakes however are mine and prove that I'm only human :-)

Crazy Quilt Gatherings will be a quarterly publication. I would like to extend an invitation to any crazy quilter, fiber artist that would like to share any new work. CQ, Embroidery, fabric painting,collage, embellishing, etc are all welcome.

The Summer issue will share "studio pets", so anyone with a furry friend which keeps you company while creating please submit your pets photo (300dpi) alone or with you in the pic to me at I will fill a page so first come, first published.

I hope those of you who share this passion with me will feel comfortable to submit your work and your stories. Every submission will be considered. The next issue will be Summer~June/July/Aug so if you have something fun to share, please feel free to email me anytime. If you would like to submit anything for the Summer issue I need it by April 1st.
Feedback will be posted in the magazine if you would like to share your thoughts on the publication and what you would like to see featured. I'm looking forward to bringing you interesting, informative and enlightening future issues. Gather your stash and get those needles ready!

  13. So looking forward to this Pat! Thank you for including me. I would love to contribute something to the next issue. Please let me know if I can.

  14. Hi Pat Wow it is finally coming together for you. The cover looks so superb and is so reflective of your gorgeous CQ style. I am just so excited, humbled and very proud to be included in this very first issue and to be invited by you! I know it will be a complete success as with every project you so professionally undertake.
    Wishing you love and lots of hugs for all of your very hard work in getting this happening.

  15. How do we subscribe to this wonderful magazine?

  16. You should be so proud of your venture! It's a labor of love for sure. I am honored.

  17. Hi Pat, I know about you from Pam Kellogg, and when she mentioned your new magazine, I had to come over and check it out. What a fabulous idea - there are plenty of magazines around (in Australia, anyway) about Patchwork and Quilting, but not specialising in Crazy Quilting! Can we subcribe to it from Down Under?

  18. I am so glad I came over tonight! I am going to email you about a submission!

    I look forward to receiving the premiere issue!!

  19. Pat, what a fabulous magazine ...I am so impressed with its beauty and informative articles! You are one uber-talented chick and I cannot imagine that Crazy Quilt Gatherings will be anything but a huge success. Thank you...I am totally humbled to be included in A Gathering of Needful Things in your first issue. You go, girl!


Your comments make me smile, I love hearing from you and thank you so much for taking a moment to stop by. Enjoy your day!
