Years ago I was published in the Quilt Sampler magazine....there was a picture of the local quilt shop, Quakertown Quilts and a pillow I sell a pattern of was in the picture. I bought that magazine too. It was one of these pillows, now that I mention it I can't remember for sure; but I think it was the heart one.
I guess that's not really what they mean when 'you are published' but it is fun anyway.
edit: It was the star pillow.
