All Signs Are Favorable for a GenQ Mag Giveaway

   
Jake
Melissa
When life lands you in the Twilight Zone which way do you turn? Well, at times like those we all just take a long, careful look around and plan our next stop. Luckily, for us all that when Jake Finch and Melissa found themselves as featured actors in a Twilight Zone episode their next stop turned out to be GenerationQ. Back a year ago the GenerationQ team was formed, and their 1st sign -post appeared in the form of the fun, informative and edgy website that is a joy to read and chime in.

My own Quilter’s-Life(QsL) began by learning traditional techniques that I used to reproduce wonderful graphic Amish style quilts. I was/am infatuated with the simplistic, bold designs and the use of solid fabrics in ways that glow, but mostly I fell in love with the stitching -  beautiful stitches that pull everything together and more.

From there I went in search of curves and my QsL headed down the art quilt path, where I still continue to create in large shapes and pull everything together with shiny stitching and a new/old love, beads.

It is a joy to look forward now, for I love the Modern Quilts - so beautiful, and refreshing too, taking the basic fabric, needles and thread that we all love and giving them new and exciting voices.

GenerationQ the magazine is just the same, using words to let these new quilts speak through/for us- beautiful, refreshing and in the words of Jake, ‘snarky’

When you get your hands on this wonderful magazine it is guaranteed you'll not put it down until you've read it cover to cover. There's everything you need for a quilter's get away --- a long list of movies every sewist must see, a must try GenQ-tini , a wide selection of quilts patterns to stitch, and  informative features that will help guide our stitch'r-tunities. Jake's article - Pinterest - a q bies new best friend, hooked me as anyone can tell from my 27+ new boards since Quilt Market. (TY Jake!)

If you must put the mag down to do other things (I know-pretty unimaginable). You can always throw it into your purse ---  it's new smaller size is perfect to read on the go.

But, don't let this smaller size deceive you, it is jam packed with some great feature columns that I look forward to seeing what's next. One of these features is Quarters, and I'm honored to be the first stitcher's home/studio that GenQ's pages lets you visit. (hee, hee it starts on page 25)


Thank you Jake, Melissa, Megan, and Scott for the incredible pleasure of watching this venture come into being, and letting me have a bit role.

--Stitch On!
