    Congrats on 25,000 followers. Thank you very much for Quiltmaker Magazine….I had never bought any kind of quilting magazine till in 1995 when after visting my mom in the hospital I stopped off at a fabric store and saw the July/August issue with the quilt called My Best Friend on the cover. It cought my eye because I had my first grandchild on the way and I knew I had to make that quilt. I lost my mom to cancer that Sept. and in Oct. my granddaughter was born. I made that quilt and she has loved it. Your magazine will always be very special to me…..I still have that #44 issue.
