Crochet Meets Quilts in Better Homes and Gardens

I wouldn't say my Granny Paints the Town blanket is featured in the Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine for Spring-Summer 2014.  More like, it snuck in like a bandit, draped in the corner  of a picture in the story which does feature Roxanne's A Wish and a Dream shop.

Well, some wonderful person (Roxanne?  the cameraman?) probably put it there; they are careful about staging photos for these things.  (Or did the blanket come alive and stage its own yarn-bombing?!)  Either way, it's pretty exciting.

You'll have to check out the magazine itself to see their pic, and many more cute photos and stories about Roxanne's shop, as well as other tantalizing quilt shops around the country, including one in Franklin, TN, near my old stomping grounds.

Click Granny Paints the Town for a copy of this fun crochet pattern (which is great for using up scraps in your stash, btw.)


  1. Absolutely gorgeous. Your color combinations are fabulous! Your talents never cease to amaze me. I will look for a copy of that magazine.

  2. Yay! Now you're famous. Or is it just your blankie that's famous?


I love getting your comments. Thanks for sharing!
