Anyway, you know how these magazine submissions go. A design is submitted months before it goes to print and therefore I can't really talk about it. However I think it's safe to mention it now since Scott's email revealed that I'm featured on the GenQ website today! Hop on over and check it out! :o)
First of all, it's funny. They don't take themselves too seriously which I like.
Second, their articles are interesting. Honestly I don't remember the last time I actually read an article in another quilting magazine. My method for deciding on buying is to flip through and if there's a pattern I like then I buy- no reading necessary. But GenQ is a different story, literally. That sense of humor and understanding of today's generation of quilters makes every page worth reading. I actually read cover to cover, usually more than once.
Third is the patterns they offer. Fun, Modern patterns. There are usually 3 or 4 in each issue that I want to make as opposed to the 1 that I would find in other magazines.
Forth, I'm in it. I mean really, that's a reason isn't it? Actually, I loved the magazine before I was in it (haven't even seen the issue in print yet) and that's why I stalked Scott until he relented and allowed my pattern in. :o)
So go check out the site, and my pattern, and find out where you can get your issue of GenerationQ Magazine. Or better yet, get a subscription like I did! :
