Penelope Quilt Love : :

This weekend I finished up two quilts, my Rock 'n Romance Diamond Strings & my Herringbone QAYG! Today, I'm taking them both with me on a little road trip, along with some hope that the sun might shine for pretty picture taking. Wish me luck!!

Throughout the making of my Herringbone quilt I was careful to take lots of pictures for my tutorial, and Penelope was right there with me. Looking through my pictures this morning, they were too cute not to share just a few of them!

She's a little shaggy & ready for a new haircut, but isn't she sweet?! She seems to love this quilt and Lily definitely loves the cozy, Folksy flannel I used for it's backing. Hopefully they'll learn to share!

Well, in addition to my etsy makings and all the quilty goodness I've been sharing here recently, I've also been working on more publication work. This was another goal of mine for this Fall and it's all very exciting for me! So when my friends at Future asked if I wanted to share a special subscription offer to their new magazine Love, Patchwork & Quilting with all of you, I jumped!!

I have a special UK subscription offer of 3 issues for £5 to share, along with special US launch rates for my domestic friends right HERE! All subscription orders placed by the 27th of September will start with issue 1 of the magazine, where you'll get to see one of my favorite projects in print!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see a new finished quilt!!  

Happy Monday, friends  Maureen

  2. Oh, cuteness! She's the blonde version of a little grey poodle mix I had awhile ago. He was such a character, as it looks like she is, too, and very photogenic ;)

    1. My eyes did too, as I was decided which pics to share this morning. She's such a sweet girl and I especially love it when she stops long enough for me to get a good photo! She's almost always on the move unless she's sleeping in her crate! :)

    1. Hi Sharon! My currency converter shows that £34.49 = $55.31 US :)

    2. I was a little confused because it says 6 continuous monthly payments at $34.49, or is it one lump payment of $34.49 for the entire year?

      Delete
    3. It works out to about $55.38 for a 6 month subscription.

      And, I was just given this new link -- US subscribers can now try the magazine -3 issues for just $10 followed by quarterly payments of $25.99, here ---- www.imsnews.com/quilting-2013

  25. Hi Penelope is super cute. I can see why you took a bunch of photos.

    I looked at the magazine subscription website but am very confused about the cost of the magazine. I can't tell if it is going to be $55.33 or $55.33 x 6. It says - 6 Monthly Continuous Credit Card @ £34.49. If that later that would be $332.04. Way beyond my budget.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just had another thought on that 6 Monthly Continuous Credit Card @ £34.49 - does that mean it is for a six month subscription? Which would mean that a year would be $110.66? The description says it is a monthly magazine.

  27. I just have to ask what kind of dog Penelope is. She is precious. I'm not sure I'm ready for another dog yet but would like to know what kind Penelope is just for future reference. She is precious and looks a little like my Callie did. Thanks! Your quilt looks gorgeous!!! So many beaufitul colors. I love to read your blog. Thanks!

  28. Penelope is a real cutie! I had a dog that looked just like her when I was a teenager. My dog was named Honey and was a real sweetheart. Penelope looks like she is too! She sure looks like she has fallen in love with your lovely quilt.

  29. Love the pup. She is adorable. Congrats on your magazine feature. I love some of the UK magazines, but they are so expensive to get in the US...

    1. Yes, but I love Mollie Makes and trust that this particular magazine is going to be really, really good. I still can't believe that I'll be in it!

  30. Your Penelope reminds me of my Cassie, a Lhasa Apso. I have a couple of pics when she was a puppy on my Aug 12th post. Anyways Penelope looks like a sweetheart!
