Fame at last!!

Aha! I’m famous!! This blog has been featured in an article in an American quilting magazine. Quilter’s Home magazine, a relatively new magazine, sent me an email some time ago with a questionnaire about blogging and quilting. I replied and promptly forgot about it. Recently, I found out it had come out (thank you, Gina!) and was bewailing the fact that I couldn’t read it in a comment on Candy Schultz’s blog, Not a Walking Encyclopaedia, and Candy kindly offered to send me a copy of the article. It arrived a couple of days ago – thank you Candy!!

I laughed when I read what they had written about me:

Whether it’s painting on fabric, knitting, sightseeing or inventing the most remarkable pieces of quilt art (she quilts on barbeque grills), Liz Plummer has me hooked. “I’m based in the UK so my work probably has a different focus – we haven’t such a well established tradition of quilting here so our work tends to overlap with embroidery and other skills more.” She posts daily and fills her blog with corresponding photos.

Well, before you accuse me of cruelty to sewing machines, please note that I only use barbecue grills to MOUNT the quilts! The cursory glance of a journalist … Hmm.. I will TRY to get back to posting daily, promise!

So if anyone here is visiting as a result of reading the article, welcome!!

By the way, here is the relevant post concerning the “barbecue grill”!

    It must be nice to be famous! I will have to see if I can find that magazine and read the article. Hopefully I can find out how the writer thought you might quilt on a bbq grill. Lol.
