Quiltmania #100 is now available - Happy Anniversary, Quiltmania!! It's actually been out for a month, but I was only able to track it down yesterday. Worth the wait. They do such a wonderful job. There is a six-page feature I wrote, called "Collecting New York Beauty Quilts" - the same name as my exhibition last summer at San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.
|The magazine is published in French (pictured), English and Dutch|
From there, it was off to the races!

Those pictures of the New York landmarks are a shoutout to all the folks who have recently showed just how much they believed in what I was doing. How great it was to reward them with the news that I would be renewing my passport and brushing up on my French. Maybe they can come along, too. I'd really love them to see it!
What an amazing opportunity it is to work with Quiltmania. How could I blame people for being a little (well, ok - insanely) jealous? I do not take it for granted.
