Jen Carlton-Bailly's quilt is on the cover of Modern Patchwork!! I absolutely love Jen's work, and this quilt is really great. It was quilted by Nancy Stovall, and I am also a big fan of Nancy! The quilt was inspired by time capsule pills such as "Contac" - but the quilt is intoxicating without any help from pills.
Two more members of Portland Modern Quilt Guilt were in The Quilt Life- Gail Weiss and Christina Cameli. There was a two-page feature about Gail by Victoria Findlay Wolfe, and I have a confession- I was the friend who said to Victoria, "You need to know Gail."
I am so glad they connected. When I was visiting Gail one day in her new house, she told me some stories and a lightbulb went off. She and Victoria needed to know each other! I do not know if they have met in person yet, but if not, I hope to be there when they do.
Christina Cameli invited me to speak at a Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting a couple years ago, and I loved the group so much, I joined. I am also a member of the Northwest Quilters, and love both groups unconditionally. I was thrilled to see an article by Christina, "Grandma's Scraps" in The Quilt Life.
While I was at Barnes & Noble, I looked for Quiltmania and found a stack of issue #100, the issue with my article, "Collecting New York Beauty Quilts". I sent copies to several friends and acquaintances recently, and hope everyone received them. It's nice to have a few extra copies to share, especially with folks who have a difficult time finding it. The magazine is published in France.
If you would like to see the Quilters Newsletter article by Pepper Cory, it is pages 33-37 in the June/July issue, #440. Congratulations to my guild mates on all the good press!!
