Editor's Notes

Rissa Peace Root 2010

In this issue, we have continued our adventures with Callie the CQ Spider.  She marks the articles that seem especially well suited to beginners. We have even brought back a few classic articles to inspire new crazy quilters.   Fear not, there are also several articles that are geared toward intermediate and advanced crazy quilters, including a tutorial on creating three-dimensional flowers by our own Allison Aller.  In addition, we have finally compiled links to all five installments of Stephanie Novatski's series of articles on creating a Tie Quilt in one place.

If you happen to be in the Bay Area around labor day, please come by the Embroiderers' Guild of America's national seminar at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. There are several things open to the public, including a boutique and bookstore. Plus, on Wednesday, there will be a vendor day. I will be there taking classes and working on artist trading cards.  Please drop by and say hello if you get the chance!  For more details, check the EGA web site: http://egausa.org/

I hope you all will continue to support CQMagOnline by submitting photos of your work and CQ related articles. Starting with the next issue, the prize for one randomly drawn winner will be fabric scraps from an Opera House that were given to me by fellow EGA member (and former Education Chair), Carole Rinard. 

As a footnote: I chose the cigarette silk above for this issue, because watermelons have become a symbol of summer for me.  I have been in Mississippi for close to two decades, but I only recently discovered the joys of a Smith County watermelon!  A good watermelon is the most delightful foil to a miserably hot and humid day, something we have in abundance here.  I am glad to have discovered that a fresh, seasonal, locally grown watermelon is the cure to many ills.
