Asterisk Quilt in New Book!


I was shopping yesterday and just happened to see my Asterisk quilt on the front cover of this book! What a shock! The quilt was in Quiltmaker magazine a few years ago. This book was published by Martingale in 2012. I had no idea they were publishing this. I'm sure I gave them permission back then to use it; they are very conscientious about that. This is quite a thrill for me!

I love this quilt- I keep meaning to make one. I've got a bunch of polka dot fabrics cut up and ready to go, but now just need to move it to the top of my list!

That is one great looking quilt too, I keep meaning to try that pattern, but I think I'll wait until the weather warms up a bit.
