Man oh man!!
Seems like yesterday.
Cliche but true.
The 25th Anniversary issue includes what Jody Saunders references as the DREAM TEAM.
She isn’t talking about the designers even though they are pretty darn special if I do say so myself.
I am NOT going to spoil who the dream team is. You will just have to see for yourself!
I have had the privilege of reading this magazine since the beginning when I searched for anything that had the word quilt in it or on it!
Then wam- bam, 25 years later one of my quilts was chosen to be in this publication
alongside some of my quilting idols and friends.
and Amy WalshThis is one of my all time favorite quilts for many reasons but
mainly for the community that has shared their version of this quilt with me.
While I was making the quilt, I was probably cursing since it seemed like I was sewing for months with no end in sight,
but the final result has brought me such joy.
A very striking color option by Monique Dillard.
My second favorite pages are page 8 and 9.
These two pages are chock full of stats from the past 25 years.
The right hand page has a picture of all the issues from the past 25 years in one nice neat stack.
I can’t even begin to imagine all the great designs, products, articles, designers and fabrics that are featured in these pages.
The hours of inspiration, education and therapy that quilters have experienced just thumbing through the pages.
Gives me goosebumps!
I want to give a shout out to Lori Eggers and Chris Neubauer.
I see your picture on page 9. It is nice to put a face to the names.
Great job, ladies!
Get this magazine on newsstands first week of Feb. and flip to page 4 to see the DREAM TEAM. I think you will agree!
Then see page 66 to make your own version of my Tone It Down quilt.
I am blessed.
