Name in Print, Again! | Top 55 Quilting Blogs!


I got a BIG surprise when I opened up the pages of the latest issue of Quilter's Home magazine today!

Every year they do a "55 Best Quilting Blogs" article and I always get a kick out of seeing all my quilting buddy's names included.

I knew the article was coming up and my subscription issue arrived this afternoon.

During lunch I grabbed it to read and got caught up in a narrative written by male quilter, Josh Cacopardo.

It was so good, I even tweeted about it!

He was talking about the stigma of being a male quilter and how he used his talent to propose to his wife. How RAD!!

FYI: He's written a few other articles of interest to manquilters. You can find one HERE.

A few pages further I came to the quilting blogs article (p. 68) and saw my pal Heather's blog in there!

I just about finished up my mini fanfare, verbaly congratulating Heather out loud (way to go, whoop, that's my bud, etc.), when I saw a VERY familiar name on the next page ...

Imagine my surprise when mine was there!

I had NO idea! You can see it on page 69 of the June/July 2011 issue:


Thanks Quilter's Home and everyone who gave them my name!

It's going to be a great day!
