QuiltMania Visits Next Door

Linda's silk quilt looked perfect. 
This was an exciting week - a team from French magazine Quiltmania was coming next door to visit the new neighbor.

We were invited to be part of the mania. BB welcomed our quilts into her much larger new digs. We hung out quilts, new group projects were on hand to show. What would the editorial team want to see?

Of course, they wanted to see quilts from BB's collection, the older, the better. Off to the closet they went ...

Quilts were flying as Carol Veillon and Barbara looked through a storage closet. That entire pile on the top ended up on the floor during the hunt.

Then the quilt show began. Luckily, Linda brought a quilt stand. Our photo shoot skills came in handy as one quilt after another went on the stand for photography.

I snapped a photo of the lovely team at the end of the session. Left to right: Guy the photographer, Barbara, and publication director Carol holding Dottie Barker. It was a lovely day - we'll be eager to see the resulting article in Quiltmania in 2015.


  1. What a great photo of the three of you in front of THAT quilt I love. Dottie "makes" the picture!

  2. The new neighbor and you seem to have hit it off from the day one :-)
    I would have loved to see the pile of quilts on the floor.. Last picture of them is beautiful!

  3. Thank you for this lovely preview, they make the best quilt magazine on this planet!

  4. What could be more fun than getting out all those fabulous old quilts and sharing the Quiltmania enthusiasm. Can I be your neighbor too?

  5. Sounds like a wonderful neighborhood they came to visit! Can't wait for the issue to appear!
