    My QA arrived today and I was so, so pcyshed to see your name, your quilts, and read your article… a lot of it I knew from reading your blog, of course, but it was wonderful to see it there contained and of a piece — so official, so glossy, and so well-written. Kudos…(and the quilts, well, you know how much I love the quilts!)

    trying to come up with a quilt slogan of 15 letters/spaces or less for a contest. All ideas welcome!
    Can you help?

    • cdmwriter says:

      Are there any topic limitations? And does it have to be completely new?

      • Terry says:

        I came up with one … right after I posted this comment. Yes, it had to be new, at least to the state the shop is located in.
        This is for a license plate made of fabric, as part of a shop hop that will take place this summer. For more information, you can go to the site of the contest. Its http://www.rowbyrowexperience.com/
        Thanks for hearing my request, though 🙂
