CQA Article

Friend, fellow quilter, blogger and guild member, The Comic Book Lady approached me a few months ago with the idea to write an article about me and my quilts. When I asked why she would want to do such a thing? she said "oh just indulge me" and so one afternoon she came by my home to see my workspace and to interview me for the proposed article.

Once written, she submitted it to
The Canadian Quilters' Association with the hope that it would be published in the CQA newsletter, The Canadian Quilter.
The Summer 2009 issue arrived in the mail today and I have to admit I was pretty excited to see the article. The Editor and staff did a marvelous job with the layout and especially with the photos that had been sent, one of the first things I noticed is that they were able to remove all of the distracting background from the photo of Earthbound and it looks so much better.

So if someone wants to write an article about you one day, don't question......just indulge them! Thanks Carol!
