The winner of the drawing for Exploring Embellishments is… Lori Ginsberg! Congratulations Lori! In her comments, Lori wrote, “I am fascinated by the idea of embellishing applique. Just another whole dimension to this wonderful artform.” I agree!

I’d like to take this opportunity to announce another exciting thing coming up. Hey guess what! I’m a cover girl!


This is Volume 3 of Quiltmaker Magazine’s special 100 Blocks issue, coming out May 10. Lookie! My name’s right there, on the cover! Could this mean… possibly… that I’ve arrived?

And, my block is on the cover too! Can you guess which one it is?

Quiltmaker is conducting a blog hop May 2-6, with bunches of participating designers and giveaway goodness each day. My day is May 5, but make sure you go on the whole tour for the maximum amount of fun.

Here’s a link to the 100 Blocks page over at Quiltmaker. That’ll get you to the links for the hop.

In other news, I’ll be at the Seven Sisters Quilt Show in San Luis Obispo, California, April 30-May 1. I’m really looking forward to this event. It’s at the Expo Center at the Madonna Inn, which is quite storied and is as pink as pink can be. And there are horses pastured where we vendors park our cars! That’s an added treat for me. Full info at aqgc.org.

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

    CONGRATULATIONS Kay on becoming a cover girl! Your designs are worthy of being on the cover of a magazine. I am so excited to have won Exploring Embellishments. I can’t wait to see my new book. I am also very excited to know that you are going to be at Seven Sisters Quilt Show. I will be attending this year for the very first time. I hope I can meet you in person.

    I’d be distracted by the horses too, Kay! Have a wonderful trip. I’m enjoying your new book, and hopefully will give it a try soon – between riding that is! Barb

    Thank you Lori! I’ll look forward to meeting you at the show! My booth is in the lobby-like area on the right. Be sure to come by and say hello!

    Quiltwhinny, what a great moniker! Horses were my first love among animals and I never miss an opportunity to shine up to one!
