Blogger's Quilt Festival



First off, I would like to welcome you to my blog, if this is your first time visiting, let me introduce myself briefly. I am Stacey, stay at home mom of 4 busy kids (aged 13, 9, 6, 3). Married to my best friend for 11 years now. I live in the Maine with my family, and love it here. I love to quilt, read, sew, knit, crochet, etc. I am trying to get my name more familiar in the quilting industry, and that is with lots of hard work, patience, and did I mention patience?? I love designing, and creating.

This quilt that I am going to share with you today has a very very special place in my heart, you can see it below, and why do you ask???



Because, you see......in the picture below what it says is on page 35??? oh, and btw, this is the Issue 14 of Irish Quilting Magazine.

Here she is in all her printed glory, omg! I wanted to fall on the floor when this arrived at my house, I mean, getting my quilt published in a magazine, ummm, me, Stacey, a nobody in Maine (or so it sometimes feel)......but now I am Stacey Carey, published designer in Maine, a little somebody :O}



Since getting this quilt published, I have had a few more triumphs in my endeavors. (becoming a Moda Bake Shop designer, being featured in Fat Quarterly's Fall Inspired Issue). Also, I have a second quilt being published in a magazine, and currently working on finishing another project for the MBS.

It is a lot of hard work, and sometimes I wonder, but I truly love what I do, and hopefully someday it will all come into place. I hope I did not bore you to death on your visit, and I hope you come back and visit again. It is always nice to meet and make new friends with similar interests. And where I live, there is no one my age with similar interests, or shall I say I have yet to find them :O} Leave me a comment (become a follower if you'd like), and I can check out your blogs also, it always nice to hear from new people. Thank you for stopping by, and letting me share one of my first major triumphs with you!

I found your blog thanks to the great tutorial on Moda Bake Shop blog, it was really great :) But this blog in dolls, gave me an idea on how to use a fabric I've had in my stash for quite a long time :) Thanks for an inspiration!
