Guest Blogging Today

On behalf of Quiltmaker, today I’m guest blogging over at Leona’s Quilting Adventues. I already said everything over there, so I won’t say more here. Please go check Leona’s blog and then you’ll know what to do here when you come back! If you’ve already been to Leona’s, welcome to Quilty Pleasures!

About Diane Harris

I'm an editor for Quiltmaker magazine in Golden, Colorado, USA. For six years, I wrote pattern instructions, product reviews and how-to articles. Then I spent four years as QM's Interactive Editor, working to generate much of our online content. Now I'm back to patterns and how-tos, which is a great fit for me. I still love writing about quilt-related topics for Quilty Pleasures, and I always have my finger on the pulse of the quilting world. I teach a variety of quilt classes and give guild programs, too.

    I really enjoyed your Guest Blog over at Leona’s Quilting Adventure. The pictures you shared were some great “eye candy” and I must now go follow the links I opened and feast some more on the beauty of quilting.

  6. I have both 100Block Vol.1 and Vol. 2 and made twelve blocks from Vol. 2…what a great resourse. Thanks, QM!
