What's New in Generation Q this Summer

Let be told that it isn't a secret that I am a huge fan of Generation Q Magazine. Jake Finch - Publisher, Co-Founder, Melissa Thompson Maher- Editor-in-Chief, Co-Founder, and Community Editor Teri Lucas and the entire staff are what I would call as pretty neat people. As I went today to get the mail from the mailbox, I was completely surprised to see some yummy mail. Yup, it was my Summer 2016 issue of Generation Q Magazine. It is usually mailed in a plain gold envelope. When I opened the envelope to see my yummy reading material for tonight, I had a smile from ear to ear.

 Then I decided to peak through and take a peak at  what was in store for me. Then as I was flipping through, I stumbled upon this beauteous photo.

Yup wanna know how psyched I was to see this, I am still jumping around my house with excitement!!!!! See this quilt was in the September/October edition of Generation Q last fall and was shown all over Quilt Market. That quilt is mine, all mine and I am in awe with the fact that the cover of that issue is in a current issue. I was told my Jake Finch that she was blown away when she saw this design and many others were taken aback by the fact I came up with this. Let be said I can surprise when needed... 

So I just wanted to share a little eye candy and to send a special thank you to all who follow me and to Generation Q Magazine for showing off this quilt... You all just rock!!!

Rain Forest from Island Batik

Evening my quilt peeps. I have to say of all the things I have ever done, being an Island Batik Ambassador is one of my favorite positions I have ever had!!! Being that we get to see what is new and exciting via email makes it more of a treat because we can drool over all the beauty that will be available for sale withing the next few months... Usually fabric & patterns that are featured at Spring Quilt Market will usually be available in the fall and with fabric & patterns shown off at Fall Quilt Market is available late winter early spring. So having the advantage of seeing all the glorious lines of fabric is a definite advantage for sure. This new line of fabric is making me drool uncontrollably. I must admit being a batik hoarder of sorts, makes it hard not to want to order this and every line of fabric. 

So with this I also want to share with you a few projects from Lunch Box Quilts and Kissed Quilts

About Trout by Lunch Box Quilts

So if you love what you see like I do and you want this check with your local quilt shop to see if they will be getting this in... I think I will have to have a few bolts of this lusciousness in my fabric stash... I may just need a vault for all this fabric I want....
