Cartoon Published in a New Magazine

I am pleased to announce that my cartoon will be published into it’s first publication! It will be in a brand new quilting magazine by Meander Publishing, LLC called Machine Quilting Unlimited. Meander Publishing is also the publishing company that puts out a popular stand up machine quilting magazine as well. The premiere issue will be coming out before the end of the year! Get your subscription today.

I have not been posting my newer cartoons on my blog because I want to keep the material fresh, as well as marketable. Here’s a spare one slightly altered for this post- LOL:


In the meantime, I’ve now learned to draw my cartoon according to publishing specs and resolution requirements. If you are new to my cartoon, I draw directly onto my laptop screen using a stylus with Photoshop software. That is what works for me, though I am open to advice from any cartoonists that stumble onto this post.

Tomorrow, I’ll post more artwork/fiber or beading photos from my old blog. Come back for a visit! As always, I love to hear from you

Hugs, Carla

  1. Congratulations! Your cartoons are wonderful and can now be enjoyed by so many more. I love the Quilters Home magazine! It might be a good match for the cow cartoon series you mentioned and also the calendar. LOL – In your spare time!

  2. Hahaha! I don’t agree about the famous part, but I am happy & honored to have been approached to do this. My goal is to draw up another solid 10 cartoons for my portfolio, then I will submit the cartoon to some quilting magazines.

    If an magazine editor stumbles across my blog- and is interested in seeing my quilting cartoon, just leave a comment to reach me- LOL!

    It is fun to compare my current drawings with some of the first ones… I do believe I have improved tremendously!

  3. Congratulations to you! I’ve already done my subscription to Vickie’s newest magazine and am eager to see the first issue. Now, with your cartoon making its magazine debut in there…..we’ll I’m even more eager for it to arrive. 😀 Congratulations again (and again!).

  4. I’m very proud of you. Sittin Smiling away….. Congratulations, I knew you were destined for greatness, no stopping you now:)


  5. Congrats! That is absolutely fantastic! You must be thrilled.

    I’m a huge fan of your blog & an even bigger fan of your gorgeous long arm quilting style. I’ve heard about the stylus/ tablet for design ideas on quilts & I’m curious about which specific one you use or would recommend. My interest would be to show clients few different ideas for quilting designs before they choose. Thanks for any suggestions and I wish you continued success on your Carla Cartoons.
