Very big news over here....

On Monday morning, I got news that I had been hoping for! I applied to be a member of the 2012 Scrap Squad for Quiltmaker's magazine and on Monday morning, I found out that I made the Squad!!

What will happen is the magazine will pick a pattern from each issue and send it to the Scrap Squad members to give them time to make up the pattern in their own fabrics. Once the due date arrives, the quilts made will be spotlighted on the Quilty Pleasures blog and the members can share pictures on their own blog.

I have already sent in my forms and I am just waiting on the first pattern to be sent. I can hardly wait!!

Isn't this so exciting!?!?! I'm so excited!!!!

this sounds like an adventure!! I will be waiting to see what you do - having seen your work, you will be doing just fine I am sure!!! If it's something that they are thinking about for the magaizine, does this mean yours could be in there as the photo of "You can make this"?? Or is it to check out that there are no mistakes in the pattern before they publish it???

It sounds like fun to me!! Congratutlations on your new 'job'!! ;-)
