Blog Tour: Generation Q magazine


I am sure you have heard the big news by now. Generation Q is now out with their first print magazine issue! After being a web only magazine for quite some time, they have now scraped up the momentum to make it to print! I am so excited for them and it turned out so cutely. :)


Besides six fun projects from some of your favorite designers you will absolutely enjoy all of the articles. The writing is quite amusing! One of the stories tells us all about the normal lives of the famous Amy Butler and David Butler (aka Parson Gray) - pretty much one of the cutest couples in the quilting business. They also do a very informative yet spunky review on 6 different irons. Well enough chatter. Why don't you see for yourself. It's time for a giveaway!

We will be giving away five copies to five lucky winners. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Coming Soon collection is! Contest closes a week from post date.

Don't forget to follow the rest of the blog tour to have more chances to win a copy of Generation Q Magazine!

July 3 – Emily Cier, Carolina Patchworks

July 4 – Scott Hansen, Blue Nickel Studios

July 5 – Jackie Kunkel, Canton Village Quilt Works

July 6 – Cheryl Arkison, Naptime Quilter

July 7 – Amy Ellis, Amy’s Creative Side

July 8 – Julie Herman, Jaybird Quilts

July 9 – Megan Dougherty, The Bitchy Stitcher
