I thought it was such a hoot when I saw a little picture of my Charming Chevrons quilt in an issue of Martha Stewart Living to help promote their American Made Contest (down there in the sidebar above Denyse Schmidt’s quilt). You can read more about that blog post here.
The American Made movement celebrates local makers and I just love the title of being a “maker.” It reminds me of Jacquie Gering’s fabulous and emotional address at QuiltCon earlier this year. You can view her talk as part of the QuiltCon lecture series on Craftsy for free, just in case you missed it.
So I decided, what the heck, I’d put myself into the hat as a contestant. I have nothing to lose and it gave me a chance to check out other American makers, too. If you are so inclined, you can vote for me here (through September 13th) and check out profiles of all the other contestants, too!
