Remember this little guy? It was the bag that launched me into a frenzy of bag making that (finally) resulted in the Chunky Wee Bag pattern.
I mentioned to my pal Jake that I had made the bag some seventeen times during the design process, and being as she’s part of the collective brain behind Generation Q Magazine, she asked me to articulate that into something that could be published in the mag.
So I decided to write it like it sounds in my head when I’m designing. There’s a huge monologue churning most of the time upstairs, and it’s full of weird thoughts when I’m in the creative groove. So I tried to capture that, and added a bunch of pix to the raw materials I sent in. The ever fabulous Megan of Bitchy Stitcher fame did a bang-up job of laying it out for the mag, and it magically appeared in the latest issue!
Isn’t it amazing how Jake and her team make that happen? Stuff goes in, pretty comes out. See, it’s magic!
At the end of the article, there’s a discount code for ordering patterns off my site, so you might want to pick one of these up. They are sold in the magazine section of your local bookstore, as well as many quilt shops. And there’s way more in there than just lil ole me – all sorts of fun stuff, patterns, interviews, etc.
And last but not least – I have a couple to give away! Please leave a comment below, and tell me something about what goes on in *your* head while you are designing. I’ll choose 2 winners on Sunday.
