Martha Stewart’s Got Nothing on Me!

Well… actually she does. πŸ™‚ I just found out my Charming Chevrons quilt (which I thought I was done blogging about yesterday) was seen in a current issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine (July/August 2013 p. 4). How cool is that?

Martha Stewart LivingIt’s a small picture, and I’m a little disappointed that they didn’t credit me, but they did mention QuiltCon. I think that’s a picture of Denyse Schmidt’s quilt below mine – so still pretty cool!

Martha Stewart is advertising her contest called American Made, so after seeing a snippet of my quilt in the magazine, I decided to enter.

You can see my American Made profile here, and voting begins August 24th if you are so inclined. I’m not expecting much from it, but if it can get my name and blog out there, then it was worth the effort. (And I’ll forgive the editors for not mentioning my name in the magazine, LOL!)

In other magazine news, I was pretty excited that I was quoted in an article about QuiltCon by none other than modern quilting goddess, Jacquie Gering. She borrowed a picture of mine that I took at QuiltCon showing the adorable hand-made ribbons. Jacquie’s article was titled, “Modern Moments” and appeared in the Summer 2013 issue of Quilting Quarterly put out by The National Quilting Association.

Modern Moments QuoteYes, I’m a self-proclaimed public relations nerd and I have both copies of these magazines now. But hey, I used to pay good money for publicity like this and now I’m getting it for free. That’s a win-win in my book! πŸ™‚

    Super cool! Congratulations. And Denyse Schmidt is EXCELLENT company to be in! It super-bugs me when quilters-bloggers don’t get the taglines and credit they deserved–WSJ pulled that nonsense a couple of months back. Makes me wonder how we can stick up for ourselves when this happens?

    I can’t wait to vote for you Christa. You would have thought they would have notified you about putting your quilt in the magazine. Good luck and hope you win.

    Hi Christa,
    Congrats on having your quilt in the magazine. That is so special. You should be so proud. You can count on my vote. I went and looked at your profile. You look great – but look at the text. Somehow the online got separated and appears as 2 words rather than 1. Again congratulations, I would be tickled pink if that were I.

    Congrats! You deserve the credit! It’s all good Karma…good will come back to you in so many ways! Have a great day.

    Woohoo! Congratulations! I agree that you should have been credited but still it’s a “good thing”

    Can’t wait for August 24th! I will definitely support you. I’m so happy for you. My husband was a little taken aback when I excitedly pointed out your quilt in Martha’s magazine, and showed him your quilt in your blog. He joked that I was turning into a quilty junkie! Haha πŸ™‚

    The cool thing about it is that one of your readers actually let you know. It’s thrilling to be in the magazine but knowing some people recognized your quilt might be even better.

    Maybe if you wrote them & said you seen your quilt in their magazine and maybe the next publication they can give you the KUDO’s you so rightfully deserve.

      Thanks – I tried that and some of the organizers of QuiltCon reached out to them but… nothing. Oh well, not worth fighting over. I was just thrilled to see it in print πŸ™‚

    Congratulations! It’s incredibly cool to have your quilt in Martha’s mag. I wish they would have given you the well deserved credit for creating it. Your profile looks great! I can’t wait to vote. I’ll have to wait until August 25th. My son is getting married on the 24th so I will be a little busy that day.
