Well, yeah, this is exciting!

Honestly, folks, I know we probably seem pretty full of ourselves at this point. So many extraordinary things have happened to our little band of hardworking stitchers, it is hard not to get excited when something more comes along. So, here we are—excited again. This arrived in today's mail.

It's the February/March issue of everyone's favorite art quilting magazine, Quilting Arts, with a 6-page spread all about the Twelve by Twelve project. As usual, Quilting Arts has shown our best sides and made us look far better than we ever dreamed.



The whole issue is about collaborative projects. We are so delighted to be included! We've answered a bunch of questions about what this project has meant and how it has impacted our lives and our art. I hope it inspires more collaboration out there. It is such a rewarding experience!

None of you are full of yourselves, you are just being given the accolades you have rightly earned. I'll patiently wait for my copy to fly into my letterbox!

Vicki said...

I think it's richly deserved. not only have you done this all yourselves, you have motivated others to do it as well and helped so many people with their artistic development

You all deserve no less than the exposure you are getting! I'll have to wait for my magazine to arrive in Australia! I was just so happy to see 9 of 12 together - my little signed postcard has pride of place in my studio!

Thank you so much for the ride - may it continue!

I sure hope the magazine arrives here soon. I love reading about the Twelves. I have read your book twice from cover to cover. It is so inspiring.

If you take to Main street wearing a sandwich board and beating a big bass drum I'd say....HUZZAH!

The accolades are well deserved, you group of Twelve through their efforts have inspired a considerable number of us out here to try our hand at something that few of us have not considered possible....Until now! Thank you for the mentoring!!

Don't worry, if you get too big for your britches they will rip and then you will know.

This is so exciting! I can't wait for my copy to arrive. I agree--you aren't full of yourselves. You are such an inspiration to all of us art quilters and personally, I am grateful to you for inspiring our collaborative effort, The Material Mavens! What fun we are having, and we all look to all of you as our mentors.
