Your Opportunity to say how you feel about quilting…
Posted 11 July 2008on:
It truly amazes me, how small our world is, and how we can find connections in the strangest of places.
Last month I ordered four books from an online bookstore. One of the books was “The Quilter’s Catalog – A Comprehensive Resource Guide”, by Meg Cox. I hadn’t heard of this book prior to my ordering it, but it seems it is everywhere now. Mark Lipinksi mentioned it in one the editions of his magazine Quilter’s Home. Not sure if I missed the edition, or I didn’t read the article, but I missed his review.
I received an e-newsletter today, and there was a blurb about Meg Cox and the book. It mentioned that she is beginning her research on a sequel, and is asking quilters to fill out a ten-question survey. You don’t have to have read her book. She wants to know how you feel about quilting. Be as brief as you want, or as wordy.
Here is your opportunity to say how you feel about quilting, and perhaps it may end up in her book.
I was taken aback at one of her questions… how many quilts have you made. I had to take some time to think about it… in fact, I made a list. In two years I have made 30 quilted projects – from pot holders, to table runners, from wall-hangings to bed size quilts. I don’t have a lot of UFO’s, but I’m glad she didn’t ask about those! If I add the works started and in various stages of completion… I could easily add 10 more.
Hmmm… I need to get back to organizing my quilt’n room, and get to work on some of these projects.
Feel free to leave me a comment on how you feel about quilting… passions, memorable moments, frustrations, satisfaction… whatever. And if you are visiting, and you are not a quilter, tell me what you like about the quilts you have seen.
