|Colors of October, in my backyard|
So, if you haven't already - go check out TQPM (BTW - with abundant patterns, articles and tutorials, EVERY MONTH, subscription for TQPM is an amazing deal!!), and look for my pattern in May of next year!
...happy dance here!!!....
Now, how terrified I am if my writing and pattern designing abilities are up to par to be published in a magazine...that is a whole another story! :0
No, I am not that new to pattern writing - have been doing that for my students for years and even started publishing some (check out publisher extraordinaire, Nancy Dill and her Quiltwoman.com and (yes, some shameless self-promotion here), my pattern Celebrate the Season) - but, it seems to me that writing a pattern for a magazine IS a bit different than writing a pattern to be published on its own or writing instructions for a class, don't you think? How different is it? I think I am on the right track (and almost finished!) but I would love to know - What do you add or take out, what do you do differently, if anything? :)
With a promise (first to myself and to you all) to show up here on a regular basis now, (oh I have so much more to tell you!), happy autumnal stitches,
