Third Time's a Charm!

So, my friend, Jill over at Recycled Daze called this one months ago! AND she always get her copy of CPS before me, so she gave me a heads up of my publication!  Thanks Jill!!!
I am excited to share that my doughnut fabric I submitted for the Cloth Paper Scissors Fabric Swatch Reader Challenge was published in the July/August 2011 issue!!!!  To see where this journey began, click here.  Then you can see the fabric here! And below are the photos of the magazine!  This is my third reader challenge publication for Cloth Paper Scissors!  Very exciting to see your name in print, maybe even addicting??!!!!!

The challenge was to create about a half yard of fabric and cut it up into 8 9x9 blocks.  Send it in the CPS headquarters and they will send you back 6 other swatches and reserve 2 for the winners stack.  And as always they pick some of their favorites to publish!
Check here to see the swatches I received!

Doughnuts, bottom right!

You may read this on my blog quite often, but I get so much out of these challenges!  I mull over the idea, take a few jabs, push myself and then, only then, do I realize these challenges are making me stronger as an artist.  I am doing things artistically I wouldn't do at that time or experiment with those materials that I had been delaying.  And it's pretty fun too!!

not taking myself too seriously on this artist holiday-


  1. Thanks for posting all of the swatches. I subscribe to Quilting Arts, but not to Cloth, Paper, Scissors so this challenge was new to me. I think it is just great that they featured your fabric! Loved it myself.

  2. Congratulations!! I got my copy of CPS a couple of days ago and immediately recognized the doughnuts, but didn't want to post anything until you saw it for yourself!

  3. I agree, the challenges get you thinking. I'm working with materials I would not have choosen. They expand your thinking and heck, seeing your name in print is so cool!
    so glad they had the good taste to pick your swatch, it was so good!

  4. I am so proud of you :). Congrats and SUPER DUPER job!!! You are a talent to be reckoned with!
