I rarely get the opportunity to see American quilting magazines and I certainly have never been featured in one, so when the lovely Cheryl Arkison asked to feature me in her article on screen printing I was delighted.
The article features some of the best contemporary screen printers worldwide whose company I am honoured to be in. Both the Umbrella Prints ladies and Leslie Keating of Maze and Vale of Australia are 2 of my longtime favourite screen printers, so to be featured alongside them really is an honour.
Celina Mancurti is another fave of mine with her stunning screen prints on linens and as for Leanne Fanny, a fellow Brit, I love her quirky style.
Cheryl's article is a great read and very informative about how to screen print and for screen printing to be given such a high profile in the magazine makes me very proud.
And because I was sent a copy of the magazine...actually 2 copies but more on that in a mo...I had the pleasure of sitting down and reading it. Modern Patchwork is a great quilting magazine full of fresh modern quilts, everyone I would love to make. I picked out my 4 favourites, which wasn't easy as I could have chosen all of them, and they are clockwise from top left:
Modern Curves Wall Quilt by Gosia Pawlowska
Impressionist Sunrise Quilt by Sharon Holland
Converging Hours Quilt by Lee Chappell Monroe
Crystal System Quilt by The Artist's House for Robert Kaufman
So about that second copy that I have...if you would like to win a copy of this great magazine just leave a comment below telling me what you love to see in a quilting magazine.
I will draw a winner this time next week...good luck!
