Last year Leanne published the first issue of Vignette. Sadly, I haven’t seen the magazine in any of the Dutch quilt shops.
Vignette is a new quarterly magazine by Leanne Beasley of "Leanne's House" that features quilting and stitching projects, recipes, as well as ideas for your home, garden, and kitchen.
Here is a picture of the first issue. I copied the picture from Leanne’s blog. Hopefully she doesn’t mind.
Then Peg from Happy In Quilting posted a picture of the contents this week. Then Leanne posted a link where people living overseas can order an issue. It was getting too hard to resist. I’m sorry to admit that I couldn’t resist the temptation any longer.
After putting in my order, I started to ponder about the meaning of Vignette. Have I been away from Oz that long, that I don’t remember hearing this word? Is my vocabulary lacking? I found these two definitions.
1. A decorative design placed at the beginning or end of a book or chapter of a book or along the border of a page.
2. An unbordered picture, often a portrait, that shades off into the surrounding colour at the edges.
I think it is a good name for a magazine. Wondering when the first issue will arrive, so that I can admire the quilt & stitchery patterns. It seems that in every issue a block of "Vignette in Stitches" - a 16 block "mystery quilt" – will be published. I haven’t seen many of you posting about this pattern, yet. Would love to know who has started and see your efforts. Leave a note.
As you may imagine, I’ll be looking out for the postman, the next couple of weeks.
