Thank You, Quilter's Home!

Maybe you've gotten the October/November issue of Quilter's Home magazine by now? Well, i just got mine last week and was so excited to see if this was
The Issue. So i flipped eagerly to the back page (completely missing the mention on the cover), and sure enough...it is!So if you want to know which person living or dead I'd like to meet, or how i met Pete, or if i have any phobias...it's all here. Plus, from cover to cover there are some great articles and a few amazing and free quilt patterns by Elizabeth Hartman and Scott Hansen. Thank you thank you to both of the editors of Quilter's Home, Jake and Melissa, for getting in touch and including me in your wonderful magazine!

When Melissa called to interview me, i seriously could have talked to her all day long. Note: once you read the interview, this next part will make more sense :) At one point in our conversation, Melissa told me that not only did Monet love to garden, he also loved to cook. I had no idea! There's a book called "Monet's Table" that is both a journal and a collection of recipes Monet gathered throughout his travels, from restaurants he would frequent in Paris, and from friends — like C├ęzanne! Needless to say, thanks to Melissa, this book will find a special place in my kitchen and this issue of Quilter's Home will find a special place in my studio. Thank you!

On another note, there was a break in the rain clouds yesterday so i went out to our garden to eat my lunch, ran back in the house, grabbed my camera and snapped these:They'll be starting their migration soon, so i took a few extra minutes to marvel at their beauty. Your turn ;)

  9. I really enjoyed reading the interview about you and was thrilled to be listed on the cover with you!! You rock, Kate, and it's not just me that says so. Looking forward to seeing Central Park in person some day. It will be your fabric before the actual Park I am sure......
