When Shane took this picture at the Star photo studio, I thought it would be a little picture in the corner of the House and Home Section, but wowsers, a full page color pic of the Life in Technicolor quilt. Dang!
Yup, that's my quilt on the cover of the House and Home section of the Star. I'm shaking and beaming all at the same time.
I'm grinning like a silly school girl in this shot, but quilts make me happy. Lauren, of My Aunt June fame, looks so serious and focused. Lauren, how did you become serious and focused all of the sudden? We are quite the contrast of modern quilters, young and hip, and experienced (aka old)....I think it's great that as modern quilters we're kind of a soup to nuts kinda group and we all have a place.
You can read the article online if you're not in the area...if you are, pop out and pick up a copy! I got quite the look from the clerk at my local convenience store when I bought a stack of papers about as tall as I am. He said I must be "into" news. I said, today I am!
I couldn't end this post without thanking the many folks who have inspired and supported me over the last three years, many of them are mentioned in the article. I never could have imagined something like this for me or modern quilting. We've come a long way in a short time!
