QTM Review

I couldn’t believe my luck when I was asked to cover Quilters Take Manhattan again this year. It’s a great day out and this years headliner was Ricky Tims. He is such a nice guy and so talented.

The organizers were very accommodating and let me into the event early so I could get some clear shots for the magazine. Thank goodness, as a lot of the images I took later in the busy blur of the day were unusable!

Edyta Sitar was interviewed for the Quilt Alliance archive and she gave us some very entertaining insights into her childhood. Unfortunately the lighting on the stage was not ideal so I’ve included an image of her and her gorgeous quilts in this post, that will not make it to the magazine. (So many excuses, I know). She now designs for Moda.

The full review (it was a busy day) will appear in Popular Patchwork magazine November issue out in the UK this weekend.

If you want to hear the interview, it will be transcribed by volunteers for the Quilt Index and logged at the Library of Congress. You’ll able to access it via the Quilt Alliance website.

Another memorable day!

    Can’t think of anyone better for the job! The quilt behind Edyta is really something special. It’s so pretty x

    Thank you Mrs Fox! I think she’d be pleased to hear that, it is a special quilt 🙂
