The really nice people at APQ have published one of my sewing projects. It's an appliqué and quilted pillow featuring a vintage style sewing machine. This was really fun to design and stitch up and I hope you'll want to try it. You can see my project, as well as other featured projects from this issue here.

To celebrate this first for me I'm going to give this pillow away! Just leave me a comment here and on Friday the 4th I'll draw a winning name. Good luck!!
