The Block Lotto in print
I’ve kown for a while that it was planned for the Quilter’s World February 2011 issue … and when a few friends mentioned seeing it, I knew it was already out. (I thought that I’d have at least until the end of the year to tidy-up the blog
I made a trip to Joann ETC Sunday to get a copy, but I couldn’t find it and no one that was working knew how to find out if they carried it.
I called the Honey Bee Quilt Store this morning and when they said they had it, I made plans to go pick up a copy for “lunch.”After I paid for the magazine, I stood at the counter and carefully flipped through the pages until I found that familiar Block Lotto quilt/badge in the bottom right corner of page 10.I felt like a proud parent.
There’s a nice blurb about us in the side bar, titled, “Here’s what I’m reading online …” on the From the Editor pages.
Besides some interesting quilt and bag patterns, there’s also a pretty good article on how to subscribe to blogs and set up a feed reader.
We’re in pretty good company in this group of blogs mentioned, too. I think it’s a nice bit of recognition for our low-key, word of mouth community and I hope it inspires more quilters to try new things and play along.
