I’m lucky enough to live fairly close to the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. I’m on my way there bright and early to take in their special events, demonstrations and exhibits with friends from my area. With a little luck, I’ll have a post about it next week.

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.

  39. Rosemary Hendley says:

    How I found this web site? Clicking on links reading up on quilting. I picked up a box of various sizes of cut material today from my project linus meeting and I am looking for something to do with them other than sewing just the squares/rectangles together. If I won todays stash, I would make something for project linus. The kids need a hug and comfort the quilts provide. I guess you can say making quilts for project linus is my quilty pleasure.
