Quilt Folk and Whizz Bang!

Issue #10 of the wonderful Quilt Folk magazine came to my house last weekend. I just adore this publication. It is well written; the photographs are sensational and it even smells good (I have a thing for paper and ink!).
Each issue features Vermont. You can’t go wrong with subjects like the Vermont Quilt Festival and the Shelburne Museum. They captured the true spirit (and I do mean “spirit”) of Richard Cleveland, one of VQF’s founders and showman extraordinaire!

But, the thing I like most about the magazine is that they keep coming up with wonderful new stories of quilters that are new to me. If you haven’t seen an issue, I highly recommend taking a look. You can find them (here).

Another treasure that arrived in the mail was Racheldaisy’s (Blue Mountain Daisy) new book, “Whizz Bang”.

I am such a fan of Rachel’s work. She takes color and texture to a new level. It is pure eye candy from page one to the end! And, she is just the sweetest person I have (n)ever met! 

I have limited my book purchases for the last few years. I am so happy that I did not resist the temptation to buy this one! You can order your copy from Quiltmania (here).


  1. I looked at the Whizz Bang book pictures. Oh so interesting. But I would think;the quilt shown with all the folded points would weigh a ton. What do you think?

  2. I will meet Rachael in person in Nantes on Thursday !! I certainly will have a copy of her book too !
    Woo hoo !

  3. I know you'll enjoy reading your new books--over and over again! Have fun!

  4. The latest issue focuses on Vermont? I've resisted subscribing since my book collection is plenty, but I love to read them.
    You are going to VQF in June with Randy, right? That is such a great show!

  5. lucky you - they look like great reads!

  6. wow dick cleveland? haven't seen him in about 30 years or so at VQF the original locale...

  7. Like Lori, I have resisted due to the bulging bookshelves, but they are beautiful issues.
    "Whizz Bang" is incredible!

  8. I have being on blog Sites for a while now and today I felt like I should share my story because I was a victim too. I had HIV for 6 years and i never thought I would ever get a cure I had and this made it impossible for me to get married to the man I was supposed to get married to even after 2 years of relationship he broke up with me when he finds out I was HIV positive. So I got to know about Dr. Itua on Blog Site who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got a cured and let her contact details, I contacted Dr. Itua and he actually confirmed it and I decided to give a try too and use his herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely. My son will be 2 soon and I am grateful to God and thankful to his medicine too.Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Disease… Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis B, Liver Inflammatory,Diabetes,Fibroid, Get Your Ex Back, If you have (A just reach him on Or Whatsapp Number.+2348149277967)He can also advise you on how to handle some marital's issues.
