Guess What!


You've got a friend in SIMPLY MODERNE!

This summer I got an email from Carol Veillon, creator of Quiltmania publications.
She and her husband, Jean, would be in Seattle.
Could she do an article about me and my quilts?  Sure!



A week later, they drove up on a motorcycle, leathers and all.
After coffee and a short conversation, we began digging through 
the nearly 50 quilts in my closet and made a very fun mess.  




She especially liked my quilts made with old clothing and other thrift store finds.  
Good thing, because that's the majority of my collection!




Santa, my only Christmas quilt, had to be included in the December issue, of course.  

I feel like Christmas has come early at my house.  
What a gift to be included in this beautiful publication!
Merci beaucoup Carol and all the staff at Quiltmania!!

Seeing your article in the magazine, made my decision to buy it easy!! I have been cutting back on mags, but this one is just different enough to be a need. I love the Quiltmania publications & want them to keep highlighting quilts from around the world. Their article about your quilts was fantastic & great pictures!! Thanks for sharing your quilts.

fiberchick said...

Oh I had no idea! Mine is in a pile of unopened things to read. Can't think of anyone more worthy of an article in a Quiltmania publication. You will be such a treat to discover to those who don't know your quilting. Congrats!!!

MadHappyCrafter said...

And a well-deserved place it is in this book/zine! I love your quilts - so alive and vibrant and fun. Congratulations!

Pam said...

That article is how I learned of you and your truly fabulous quilts. I, too, am a fan of Gwen Marston, Freddy Moran and Victoria Findlay-Wolfe. I am thrilled to have found you and your work!!

m. said...

Thank you for sharing these inspiring pictures!! I believe I found your blog through 15 minutes play by Victoria Findlay-Wolfe. You, Gwen Marston, the Gee's Bend quilters, and Beth Shibley (Love, Laugh, Quilt) are so inspiring to me! And your "Gratitude" is possibly my all time favorite. I just hope I can get my hands on a copy of this magazine!

Tonya Ricucci said...
