Have you ever picked up a quilting magazine (or any other for that matter) and seen a picture or article in there that you are responsible for?  

 Your heart does a little flutter and a smile comes across your face and you want to tell the world, "that's mine".  

Well that is how I felt when opening up the Sept/Oct issue of Quilty Magazine from Fons & Porter.

I quickly scanned the pages looking for something familiar and bam there it was on page 83.

This picture!

This is the quilt that I made for my niece using all her soccer and hockey jerseys. You can read more about it here. (BTW she graduated with Honours in June and is now pursuing her Masters)  I was really proud of this quilt.

There was just one thing missing: credit with my name for this photo & quilt! (insert sad face).    I have contacted the writer and the editor and apologizes have been made. Apparently there was an error in the information received and a correction will be inserted in the Jan/Feb issue. 

So as the title of my post says 




  1. I'm surprised they would publish a photo without checking on something like that. Congrats anyway. At least there will be credit given in the next issue.

  2. Congratulations! Hopefully they will re-print the picture next time with your info.

  3. Congrats Lee! We do know how it exciting!!
    We also hoop the magazine re-print your picture with correct link.

  4. Wow, fabulous! They should be ashamed of themselves for not making sure the artist got her credit!

  5. Oh boo! That is a terrible error on their part! So you knew you were going to be in the magazine and were anxiously looking? Oh man! That stinks! I sure hope they publish the picture again and give proper credit this time. :) Also, congrats to your niece.

  6. That's a heartbreaker, truly! I still remember how excited I was when I had a quilt show up in a magazine. I'm so sorry, Lee. You're a great quilter, I'm sure you'll get another shot at fame!
