5 Seconds of Quilt Fame

They say that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame.  Well, today I think I have about 5 seconds of quilting fame.  This is the link for Kate Spain's current newsletter that came out today.  A week or two ago, I got an email from her husband, Pete, asking me permission to include a photo in the newsletter.  Well, the photo didn't fit, but if you scroll down to the "Flickr Stars" section, at the end you will see a link to my photo.  You will know it is me, because it says patrioticquilter.  Anyway, it is the photo of my Terrain Quilt that I made my sister and bother in law for their wedding.  (You may have seen it before.)  It was all really exciting to email back and forth and to have a link in their newsletter!



  1. Your Terrain quilt really does look fantastic! :-)

  2. How exciting! Now I know someone famous :-) That is certainly one beautiful quilt! Probably one on my favorites of all time actually. I remember loving it when you originally posted about it. I'm not surprised that Kate Spain was impressed with it too. Who wouldn't be? Congratulations on such a special recognition :-D

  3. Congratulations! It certainly is a beautiful quilt! Glad you got some attention for it because it is very deserving. - happy stitching!

  4. Wow! for sure! How exciting for you! Sort of like having your name up in lights!
    Well deserving I might add; you did a wonderful job on the quilt and your sister and brother in law must have been thrilled with it. I am sure they are tickled pink to know that their gift made quilting news this month.
    Congrats from me too!

  5. How fun! That is so awesome! Your quilt is spectacular, who would want to not share it! What a great gift too.
