It is Day 2 of the #31DayBlogChallenge2018, though I confess, I am writing this post ahead of time!
I have some good news to share:
My entry in another challenge, the Quilting Arts June 2018, "I've Got a Notion" Reader Challenge was accepted and has been published! It is exciting to see my little quilt printed in the recent December 2018/January 2019 Quilting Arts Magazine.
Here are two photos of my quilts, the first one is a detail, and the second is the completed quilt:

It took me about 2 weeks to complete the little quilt. I used leftover bits from previous projects, charms, buttons and a little spool of vintage silk thread to embellish the quilt. My father gave me the little brass thimble with a tassel charm, which I included on this quilt.
The Reader Challenges in Quilting Arts Magazine are a great way to challenge yourself and keep yourself creating on a regular basis. In the past I have entered some of the challenges, but had not been chosen, which is always a bit disappointing. But now, when I think of it, taking part is actually a way to keep yourself growing creatively (DUH!). I may try to enter most of their challenges this following year. I also like that you do have the chance to have your art published and it is another way to share your creations with others.
You can find the December 2018/January 2019 issue of Quilting Arts here.
