Jennifer was in Colorado not long ago and came by to have lunch with the QM staff. She’s delightful! We asked if she’d consider penning a story for Quiltmaker, and in this issue readers can enjoy the results.

Just to whet your appetite, here’s a morsel from The Runner’s Quilt

Molly would be the first to admit that her favorite activities—quilting, reading aloud stories to her three adorable daughters, munching double chocolate chip cookies with a steaming hot cup of Earl Gray Tea—were somewhat sedentary. Nevertheless, when her youngest daughter started kindergarten and Molly prepared to return to the work force, she was surprised to find that somewhere along the way, she had picked up an extra—and very much unwanted—twenty pounds.

Pick up the March/April issue to continue reading about Molly and The Runner’s Quilt.

    Cute story (and don’t we all know how those twenty pounds can sneak up) but the copyeditor in me points out that “Earl Gray Tea” should be “Grey.” Although the color gray/grey is interchangeable dependent upon whether you prefer British or American English, the tea is a proper name and is, by all accounts, always the British spelling. Perhaps the magazine has an opening for a proofreader? :o )

  2. Yay! I love Jennifer’s work. She is so talented! Have a super day!

    I read it today! Again, I identify closely with many of Jennifer’s stories and characters in many different aspects. Can’t wait for the next installment!

    Yes, quilting is “broadening”.
