Christmas Quilt Pattern Scandinavian Tomte

Christmas Quilt Pattern ~ Scandinavian Tomte

TOMTE

A mythological creature from Scandinavian folklore 
typically associated with the Winter Solstice
and the Christmas season.

You may have seen my Scandinavian Tomte quilt pattern in a couple previous posts but I’m excited to share that it’s been published in the latest Simply Moderne issue from Quiltmania! This is a big deal for me, and I am so grateful to the group over at Quiltmania. They are kind and supportive in every way, truly a wonderful experience all together.

If you already subscribe to Simply Moderne I hope you enjoy this issue! And if not, I would recommend a subscription to any of the three they offer (Quiltmania, Simply Moderne, Simply Vintage).

So back along when I got the news that my quilt was chosen for the winter issue I was over the moon to say the least. I’ve always enjoyed the magazine and all the beautiful quilts and photography!! So, it’s no surprise (I confess) that over the past few months I’ve been spending a little time daydreaming about how they will photograph my quilt. (I’m a pisces, we do that lol)

It was the day after Thanksgiving and my daughters were home from college, we were all just hanging out, decorating the tree and listing to Christmas music when the mailman came with the magazine.  Now, you know my whole family was on magazine alert… let’s just say I might have mentioned it was coming soon (once or twice) AND maybe I was checking the mail a little more regularly (smiles).

We huddled up on the couch and I turned the first page and there it was, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I might have screamed a little…

Christmas Quilt Pattern Simply Modern magazine 7I was actually quite blown away.  Seeing my quilt in such a lovely scene (seriously I want that bed) and seeing it featured on the contents page ~ I was feeling extra special, and thankful!

I quickly noticed the fine print… my quilt had been on a quilt-cation! Was I jealous? Hell ya!

Later that night I googled both La Maison des Lamour (where my quilt was photographed) and Les Petites Maisons dans la Prairie. Both places are breathtaking and I quickly added them to my bucket list… some day.

Funny thing is, the next page brought me right back home to New England ~ to the Vermont Quilt Festival which is just a state away from me!

The issue also features the Tokyo Festival, three portraits (I’m totally obsessing over the the quilts of Kumiko Fujita and Kazue Nakajima)  ~ PLUS a technical lesson with one of my crushes Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession, and a whole bunch of projects….Christmas Quilt Pattern Simply Modern magazine 7

including Tennessee Lightning which I’m in love with! Looks like a great scrap busting quilt.

And guess what?  They made mention of my Dear Daughter Quilt! (GUSH!)

So, this Thanksgiving I’m feeling extra special and so thankful that I get to do what I love! I hope you all enjoy the Holiday Season!!! Hugs!
