I actually have bought both of those magazines! I have three girls who love skirts and have yours in mind - keep up the great work!

I saw this but didn't even realize it was yours! So cute! Always nice to see designers that I love in the mags!

Congratulations Tanya! I just love your fabric and patterns. Your ruffled skirts were the inspiration for the "flirty" skirts I created. Take a look.


Awesome! I'm off to buy the mag. Thanks!

I love. love, love the Flirty Skirts, Tanya. And such a pretty spread Q&M did (as they always do). I gasped with delight when I saw that you were the designer and that we're sharing pages in the same issue! Like we're paper neighbors. Yup. Can I borrow a cup of sugar?


I made your skirts for my girls months ago (you can see them on my blog)and they wear them weekly, with no prodding from me! It is really a great little pattern and was a treat to pick up Quilts and More and see them there, it must be such fun to be featured like that!

the skirts look great, too bad I have boys and my sewing is not the best, but if I was a grand sewer I would be making these! I think its allot of fun to be in magazines, I have one very easy craft going into BHG for Holiday crafts just to show the people even half sewers like me can make stuff!!


I was so excited when I got that issue and saw your piece!

Congrats on the recognition! You so deserve it! I will check out those mags....



Such a great project and very easy to understand. Congrats again on the magazine spreads. so well deserved!


Super cute! Congratulations... so well deserved!


Your flirty skirts are so cute, I am now inspired to learn how to sew. Any recommendations on a sewing machine for beginners? I have looked all over for the quilts and more magazine but cannot find it anywhere -- could you please post the extended size directions.
Thank you !!


I seriously have Quilts and more sitting beside me. It's been open to the flirty skirts since this morning with plans to run to the local quilt shops on Saturday to see if they have Ava Rose-Rose or Ruby.
My little one (2 1/2) is very much into pretties and twirlies.


I love your ruffly skirt pattern! I have made 2 for my daughter and one for my niece (after the pattern was 4th hand emailed to me!) Just found your website with a little research, and will definitely be coming back!
