I’m a cover girl!


Well, I never thought I’d be saying this, but I’m a cover girl! No, not a scantily clad model, or a spokeswoman for Covergirl makeup… My art is on the cover of the next issue of Quilting Arts magazine! I made this peacock feather piece called “Vanity” to demonstrate how you can use thread to highlight the element of line in your work.

It’s featured in the second installment of my thread-sketching series, which will run through 2010. 

You can pre-order the April/May 2010 issue of Quilting Arts right now by clicking here. It will be going out to subscribers in the next few weeks, and on newsstands (including Barnes & Noble) soon after that.

I am over the moon!
