I Wanna Be on the Cover of a Quilt Magazine

Michael Miller Fabrics recently placed some of my quilts in several magazines.

I have been published several times - 
but I have never made the cover - 


The quilt is Aromatherapy 
made from a fabric line by designer Patty Young.
The byline says it was made designed by me
and made by Cami - but she did the machine quilting only.

Fons & Porter also have a special publication called
"Quilts for Kids"
and I have landed three MMF quilts in it!

This quilt features all single knits - even the backing -
what a wonderful feeling!
Try it - they absolutely do not stretch because the quality is so good!

I must admit I did three different variation of baby quilts 
with this collection and they all turned out great.
Check out another variation at www.michaelmillerfabrics.com

And the Big Daisy is one of my favorites.
I love color and this makes every baby smile!

Thanks to Debi, Christine and Kathy at MMF for all the opportunities!

A side note - Fons & Porter is located in Madison County, Iowa.
This is where my dad grew up and where many of my family members reside today.  I will be headed to Madison County for a family reunion in July!

It's a small world after all!!


  1. Congratulations, Ellen! The quilt is wonderful!!

  2. That magazine landed in my letterbox this week and I loved the quilt on the front. And now I realise that it is yours. Congratulations on making the front cover this time. And well deserved, too.

  3. My daughter loves this quilt and is starting university in the fall. I would love to make it for her. I have been able to find all the fabrics except the fabric for the border. Do you know where I can order this fabric?
