A little WAHOOO moment with Quiltmania

quiltmania-09.jpgQuiltmania is a French quilt magazine, published six times a year in both French and English. They also publish special issues each year – one of which is a childrens’ issue (Hors-série – Enfants) dedicated to projects grown-ups can make with children in mind – although the special issues are only published in French.

Awhile back they had seen my “Home in the Middle” quilt and asked if they could publish it in their 2009 children’s issue. (They’ve actually published another quilt of mine – Lilly’s Water Wings – in their 2008 issue.) I said yes and sent the quilt off to France… alas, they didn’t ask me to accompany the quilt, darn.

Today the UPS delivery truck pulled up with a box from France. Inside was my quilt and three copies of the magazine. There on the cover was my quilt!!! I squealed with delight!!! They may have even heard me in France. I was so thrilled. They didn’t mention a word in any of our email correspondence so I had no idea.

I’ll be on cloud 9 for a bit I think. :)
That, and I’ll have to trust my handy Mac Translator Widget to figure out what the magazine says.

(The translator didn’t have anything for Wahoo in French.)
