I'm so excited to share that I've had a quilt design published in a magazine for the first time!

Quilty Magazine published my design in their March/April 2014 issue. It's called Garden Path. 

I used Michael Miller Cotton Couture Solids for the first time and they were lovely to work with. Soft but not slippery- they have a great hand to them. 

This accomplishment comes with a bit of bitter sweetness- I found out it was accepted the day after my dad passed away last year. He would have been so proud. I wish he was here to share this with, but he's with God and that's comforting. 

I know there's been radio silence on the blog for a while, but I have things up my sleeve- fun stuff is coming!


  1. Congratulations Carmen! Its a great modern and charming pattern!

  2. Wow, what a bucket list accomplishment Carmen, most likely not your last. Sorry to hear about your dad, I am sure he is smiling down on your accomplishment. Congrats!

  3. It is beautiful! Congratulations!!! I understand about blog silence. I had such good intentions this summer... then school started... :P I keep telling myself, maybe when the kid are older. :)

  4. This is awesome! It's how I found your blog - I love Quilty.
