One of the exciting things that happened to me in 2012 was having a quilt selected to appear in Volume Five of Southern Weddings Magazine. This is Hot Summer Cabins. It was inspired by a charm pack of warm toned batiks that I used for the oversized center “chimneys”. I kind of thought of it as a beach sunset.
See if you can find the quilt here, right in the center.
The editor spotted it in my Etsy shop, and now that we can see the color scheme for the wedding shoot, it makes a lot of sense. The colors sure are great together. Unfortunately, that lovely tall bride stood right in front of it…. I hope it shows up better in another shot.
Lara Casey just let me know today that all three quilts in that photo are being given away on the web site today. I can’t tell how long the giveaway will be open. A few of the commenters are saying nice things about my quilt and requesting it as their prize.
So, I’d like my next brush with fame to be a little more prominent, but this was still fun. If you’re looking for wedding ideas, Southern Weddings is a very enjoyable and inspiring magazine.

That is truly special, Valerie.That’s a magazine I’ve never seen, but I’ll look for it. And the quilt is really striking.
