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.

  39. Elise says:

    I have had a subscription to Quiltmaker since 1990. It’s my guilty pleasure! I found the link to quilty pleasures when I became a Facebook friend of the magazine.

  40. Cathie says:

    Not sure how I discovered your blog. Most likely as a link on another blog. You’ve been in my reader list for quite a while!

  41. Jean in MN says:

    Found you through my Quiltmaker Magazine subscription, along with lots of other great quilting ideas.

  42. Barb Johnson says:

    I honestly don’t remember how I found your blog. I know it was after I found your magazine. Which was a few years back when Bonnie Hunter mentioned in HER blog that she was going to have a monthly column in Quiltmaker magazine. I subscribed right away and haven’t looked back.
    OH, wait a minute – I think I found the blog because you had a giveaway in the magazine where we had to find the icons on the advertiser’s websites and enter the information on your website. And I think one of the entries was from the blog?

  43. Dee says:

    Found it accidentally! There was a link on something else that I clicked.

  44. Marly says:

    I think I found you when surfing blogland, or when looking online for some tutorial or other, and found the QM block makers’ videos. Then one thing led to another. I’ve been following you since last summer, and subscribe to QM since January

  45. Deb says:

    Can’t for the life of me remember….it’s been a while! lol LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the pinks and browns, my favorite combo and of course, adore the blog! Thanks for the giveaway!

  47. Jean says:

    I think I found it through Quiltmaker which I have subscribed to since the mid-90′s I think, when you were still using templates. It is my favorite quilting magazine. Your color issues have been a big help to me, not only with quilting, but combining different colors for multicolored prayer shawls.

  48. Maggie says:

    I found Quilty Pleasures through my subscription to Quiltmaker – via the quiltmaker website or the facebook page.

  81. Lisa Marie says:

    I am a long time subscriber to Quiltmaker magazine. I guess I probably discovered the blog from a visit to the Quiltmaker website or something I saw in the magazine. It’s been a long time ago, so I’m not 100% sure.

  82. beth says:

    I googled National Quilting Day and you popped up. I took a quick look around and added you to my bloglovin feed.

  83. Amy (NW WI) says:

    YES! A whole National Quilting Day with NOTHING on the agenda other than quilting!
    Quiltmaker is my go-to magazine; the only magazine I religiously renew every year. I fell upon the Quilty Pleasures blog via Quiltmaker one day…I think (??) It’s been in my daily reads since forever, it seems.

  84. Debra says:

    I found your blog by clicking through from another quilting blog. I have taught myself to quilt, after sewing for almost 50 years, almost entirely from reading blogs.

  85. Cindy says:

    Not sure how I found the site- but I enjoy it!

  86. Donna Albright says:

    I subscribe to Quiltmaker and have made a couple of quilts from the magazine, so how could I not read the blog daily!!!?

  87. Leanne says:

    I’ve been a Quiltmaker subscriber for a couple of years and started reading Quilty Pleasures after reading about it in the magazine. I’ve been lucky enough to win a couple of giveaways over the years too. Thanks for another chance to win.

  88. Betsy says:

    I discovered it on bloglovin

  89. Emily C says:

    I found Quilty Pleasures via a link from a blog. Sorry, I don’t remember which one, it’s been a while. I love the magazine, it is fun to read and browse the quilts in.

  90. Lee says:

    Its been so long that I have know of your blog… so I think it was from Quiltmakers Magazine! thanks! I am off to sew!

  91. Karen says:

    I found you on line, I’m not really sure though, I go from one blog to another and somehow it led me to you :) I have you on my feedly reader so I know when you post anything.

  92. JOY says:

    I think I found Quilty Pleasures through an email from Quiltmaker Magazine :)

  93. I found you one day when I was indulging myself in happily skipping along through the “inter”verse. I have a folder of daily visits on my tool bar and this is the very first window that opens every day. I am here with my first cup of coffee every single morning, whether it is a publishing day or not. SO MUCH EYE CANDY. And it is all fiber,no carbs!

  94. Amy Walker says:

    I am brand new at quilting and have been searching for “how to’s”. I found the Quiltmaker magazine which led me to this blog. I love all the tips and information. Thanks.

  95. n moir says:

    I can’t actually remember how I found this site, but I read it regularly. I am upset when you don’t have a new post! Thanks for all the great ideas and good photos.

  97. Donna says:

    I found Quilty Pleasures through the “grape vine!” Someone knew about Quilty Pleasures and told a friend, who told another, who told another, and so on until my friend who told me got the message. Oh, and I have been telling more people ever since!

  98. Anita says:

    Starting quilting two years ago, and getting active in blogging, I soon discovered Quilty Pleasures. I get lots of inspiration from your blog!

  99. Annaleena says:

    I have been subscribing Quiltmaker magazine from 1990′s and I think I originally found out about this blog page from one of the magazines. I like your blog. It’s very inspirational and also motivates me many ways.
