Page 28 - Print Publications!


Today, I copy and pasted part of the Project Quilting Challenge for my post.  Read it quick and then scroll down and read my post.

Challenge 5: Print Publications

  1. Choose a print publication***. Right now I have lots of trade publications (fruit and vegetable grower magazines for us orchard people) and seed catalogs. Quilt magazines or fabric catalogs are great possibilities. Any print publication that you have in your possession qualifies. Those that have lots of pictures are best. You might want to gather up a few, and then read the rest of this challenge before you decide which is to be your chosen publication.
  2. Open your publication to page 28. Your inspiration must come from this page. Be sure to take a picture of the page, or the portion of it that provided your inspiration and include it when you upload your photos. I realize the temptation will be great to check out page 28 of every publication you can find, but please try to honor the spirit of this challenge."

On Sunday, after I read the Project Quilting Challenge, I gathered a few magazines. "The challenge states choose the magazine first and then open it to page 28."  

I was in the mood to work with blue fabrics again, so I thought I would grab a few that might have blue things in them!  

I found a nice variety.  An antique magazine, a dutch travel magazine with lots of colorful photos, an old Woman's Worlds, an old Fabric Circle, a couple American Quilter magazines, and a Country Home Magazine.


I paged through a few of them, being very careful, not to see page 28! 



Oh cool! The antique magazine had cool blue and white stuff, but it started at page 150 or something! 


So I can't use that magazine.  I thought about counting in 28 pages, but NO --- I am not going to do that.



I decided to choose the magazine by the front cover! I chose Country Home.  Maybe I will get a really cool blue Christmas page!  YES!

I flipped to page 28.

Oh no ---- it is a medicine description for an allergy medicine!  OK --- that is page 28!  There is no blue and no color, but I will be inspired to make a quilt from page 28.

I did lots of thinking about the challenge, before I went to sleep last night.  I woke up this morning and I decided to create with strips of black and white fabrics. 


I also decided to add blues.


I have some ideas flowing around in my head and I will share them later in the week.
Enjoy your day!

I don't get publications of any sort, only a community flyer and it came today - with 21 pages! So I am going to ask my SIL for one of theirs - not telling her why. Keeping fingers crossed that I get a good page!
