Thank you!

Thank you for the encouraging emails about the magazine. I was overwhelmed this morning when I turned on my computer and saw so many have already seen and purchased a copy. I sure didn't sleep much last night. All I could see were pages I could change and layouts and mistakes that weren't caught in time. It's funny how your mind won't settle down when your body wants to :-)

I really had fun working with the ladies who contributed to the premiere issue. I'm looking forward to working with future contributors. The next issue is filling up quickly. I knew there would be a lot to cover and I'm trying to touch on a variety of projects and subjects for all to enjoy.

A huge hug and thank you to:
Pam Kellogg
Diane knott
Terri Takacs....who will be on the NATE BERKUS show sometime soon :-)
Suzy Quaife
Lisa's Altered Images
Maureen Greeson
Wendy Shu
Gerry Krueger
Lovey Johnson Debrow
Trisha Evans
Lilla LeVine
Rengin Yazitas
Jan Obertein

I hope you treat yourself to a browse through the eye candy and fun projects these ladies have shared. You can order your copy here. Enjoy!

  3. Pat this is so very exciting. I have just ordered my copy and am looking forward to the wonderful inspiration within it's pages. Thank you for putting this together as I know it was a labor of love. Happy crazy quilting...

  4. Just got my copy and will peruse it shortly. Wanted to suggest that maybe Kathy Shaw would be a good one to have an article about her templates and her 12 dozen project.

    Or her rick rack flowers.

  5. Congratulations Pat! I just jumped over to order a copy...I'm off to brew the tea...

  6. Pat, my pleasure and honor, to be sure! That you asked me to be in your magazine among all of the so very talented stitchers...I hope my simple little project will bring in new crazy quilters who are afraid to take that first step! Again, I am honored and thank you from my heart and wish you much success! I've ordered my copy and can't wait to receive it!
    Hugs and love,

  7. Pat,
    Just found your blog from a post on Maureens Vintage things and love it. I ordered the digital issue of your magazine for my IPad and really like it however if I could make a suggestion for it. When reading it you must scroll down the page and it does not load right. If the publisher could change the format to page through like reading a magazine it would be better (side to side)

    I'm so excited to find you and will be back often. I'm off to look in your Etsy shop

  8. Hi Pat, can't wait to receive my copy. Will be ordering next week.

    I mentioned it on my blog, on Simply CQ blog, I tweeted it and will be FBing it shortly!

    The cover alone is gorgeous!

    Thank you dear one for including me!

    Hugs, Pam

  9. Beautiful magazine, I purchased the eVersion. love it, looks very rich and beautiful on my iPad. Having it on my iPad makes it very portable and hard to misplace.

    Great job!

  10. Hi Pat, I've ordered my copy of your magazine. It will take about two weeks to reach me here in the UK. I'm sooo looking forward to reading it. It was pics of your work that inspired me to take up CQ, and it's become an huge part of my life, (which is great, as I'm disabled) I've also made many new friends worldwide because of this interest. So thank you so much. Blessings.

  11. Hi Pat, The magazine looks beautiful. I just have one question. I'm interested in the digital copy as I simply don't have room for more magazines and I have a feeling I'll never be able to throw this one away. So, I clicked on the preview button to see how it would display and it was too small for me to read. I didn't see a maximize button anywhere on the screen to make it go to full size. Can you tell me if I'll be able to change the way it is displayed.



  12. Beautiful Pat - a lovely effort and very well done! I can't imagine how much work you put into this, and I believe you when you say the mind just won't quit.
    I hope you are very proud of what you have done here - it's a wonderful thing!

  13. Hi Pat
    You are getting some excellent response to the magazine. I have just posted quite a lengthy descriptive article on my blog about the magazine inc. who is featured etc. with some of my pics and telling people how to purchase their copy. I have my digital version now and love it. Wishing you abundant success with this venture Pat you are so deserving of it.
    Hugs, Suzy

  14. I love crazy quilts and have a favorite antique one... so I'm definitely going to get a copy of this premier issue... congratulations, it is sure to be a great success!
