It's the one I made in January for A Needle Pulling Thread magazine. I wrote up the pattern and mailed it all off to Toronto. That seems like a LONG LONG time ago.
Good News: The summer issue if finally out!
Bad news: Due to the mail strike, it's still in Toronto with the quilt.
Shocking News: as I poked around on their website, I noticed that they put MY quilt on the COVER! I kid you not. Take a look! (Sorry - it's as big as it gets.)

I can barely wait to get my hands on this issue!! My quilt is called "Snips n Snail". It's a simple 16-patch kid's quilt in 70's solid colors. It features embroidered/stitched mushrooms, snails, and dragon flies on the large white alternating patches. The pattern is in the magazine, along with a large selections of some very beautiful needle arts projects.

The cover! Unreal. Aren't the colors great? Carla, the editor, hand picked them based on the original Coppertone suntan bottles. I chose to swap the pink for the color "tomato" instead. I also added those 1970's greens as well to keep it authentic. You know, the green my daughter refers to as 'ugly green'. I really love this color combo.
