The folks at Quilter’s Connection magazine sent me a couple of extra copies of the latest issue which includes with my pattern for the Mola cushion using hand reverse applique. I’ve decided to give them away: one on my Facebook page, and one here.
The issue is called “The Travel Issue”, because it features stories about quilts from Africa, batiks from Indonesia and a pattern for a table mat made using sashiko, as well as my Mola article (Panama).
Where is your favourite quilty place in the world to visit? Is it Cairo, where the Tentmakers create dazzling appliqued works of art? Or Bali, where you can seriously exceed your luggage weight limit with all the batiks you bought on Sulawesi Street? Or is it closer to home, in Houston, Paducah, Sisters or any of the other many many great textile destinations in North America, England, Australia, Canada, etc……
I’ll decide who will win this issue by judging the best story of world quilt/fabric destinations. You have until St. Nicholas’ Day: December 6th to get your stories in. Post your story in the comments below, so that everyone else can read them too.
May the best story win!
