Here’s the photo that accompanied the article. There’s a Katmandu quilt hanging on the left!
Now I know it’s not the New York Times, but this writer needs to get her editorial shit together. We wonder how the old lady stereotype is perpetuated — just read between the lines of this article…”Quilting Bees?” Is she kidding? Any writer worth their salt could have — SHOULD HAVE — done a bit of research into modern quilting and/or found a new, unique angle. What are they teaching in journalism classes these days anyway? BURN HER! LOL
Now, I’m thrilled that Kindred Quilts had an article featuring the shop, but given the way it was written I doubt if any potentially NEW quilters will show up. It reeks of the mothball stereotype. Quilting bee, indeed! How very dare you!
Jeff went to a birthday party in Manhattan yesterday and ran into an artist, Agnes de Bethune. Agnes has given it all up to paint. Her speciality is oil on canvas flowers. Honestly, I would swear that her painted flowers look like photographs!
The latest issue of McCall’s Quilting is about to hit the stands.
I am gushing that my name is on the front cover of McCall’s. It means that the magazine has confidence that they can sell magazines because my name is on the front. I’m kinda blown away and humbled. Really I am! Now you HAVE to buy it.
On the inside is a pattern for my Mark’s Matrix quilt. I had named it Moroccan Tiles. I had designed this quilt ages ago from Benartex Crystals fabric. You can get a kit, I’m sure from O’Susannah’s Quilts and Gifts (click on their name for more information on their shop and or this kit) in Watkins Glen, upstate New York. Sue Murphy and her gang actually pieced this huge baby for me. It’s pretty spectacular in person. I’m not sure the photo does it justice.
Also, my buddy, neighbor and fellow guild member, Amy Bell Buehler, has a quilt pattern in this issue made from Katmandu fabrics. I just love this quilt.
