This absolutely gorgeous sewing caddy by Linda C. Teufel. The fabric is Jane Sassaman! You have heard of Linda C. Teufel, you just don't know it. She is the force behind Dragon Threads Publishing, and to quote from her blog:
Dragon Threads has strived to bring the most innovative techniques in the quilting and sewing worlds to the market. She has a knack for recognizing the exceptional talent in our impressive list of authors: Noriko Endo, Judith Baker Montano, Philippa Naylor, Lorna Moffat, M. Joan Lintault, Vikki Pignatelli, and Barbara Olson.
I was thrilled just to be able to converse with such a talented woman. She always has interesting posts with fabulous quilters and keeps you up to date on what is going on in the quilt world. A truly remarkable woman. Thank you Linda!
On another blog related topic, I met Cheryl from Muppin.com about two years ago. I haven't 'met' her but we have chatted to each other on a regular basis for a long time now. She is now rocking the quilt art scene with her quilts that light up. Literally. So much so, that 'Quilting Arts' magazine has published her work and she is now friends with the infamous Pokey Bolton.
If you are just now following my blog, you know that I would love to meet Ms. Bolton. She finds quilt artists and exposes their talents, showcases them and is a genuinely nice person.
Back to my story, Cheryl, sent me this in the mail today:
Would I sound like a schmuck if I told you that when I opened it up and read it, my face went so pale and my hand started shaking that my husband rushed over to ask what was wrong! Heaven forbid I actually meet her someday=)
I have been working on my latest art quilt. I got it all pinned today. I really detest that part of quilting. My back just kills me from taping it to the floor, putting the three layers on and pinning the whole thing together. I even started quilting it. Here it is all pinned.
