Art Quilting Studio Winter 2010

SURPRISE!! ~ Well for me anyway. I thought after Belle Armoire's issue in September/ October I was done receiving magazine's for the remainder of 2009 that I was featured in but to my surprise I received this in the mail yesterday.
I was so curious to see what it was that was being featured and finally I flipped to this page
It felt so sentimental seeing these tags because these tags were made from my late Grandma's Quilt. It was a good 40 years old atleast and the top layer of the quilt was thinning. No longer able to use it for a quilt I still wanted it around so I cut a million little hearts out of all of the quilt blocks.
It was really hard I remember, sitting on the couch and cutting up a quilt that I knew she so lovingly has stitched together. But it made me happy to know that it would still be enjoyed.
I sent 12 of these tags into the Editors at Stampington so they could hand them out at their Editorial meetings just as a Thank you. Like little Hospitality favors. I had just gotten the position in Mops for Hospitality and was so excited to start that I started practicing on them I guess :) So, even though I didn't intend to turn them in for publication here they are. & I couldn't be more thrilled about it :)
Hope you Enjoy!!
