  1. How fun Ebony….looks like you had a fantastic time and great success. I was telling my husband about you and how amazing you are and how you are busting into the quilt world…and I say “Good for you”

  2. Hey Mary – just picked up my copy of Quilty magazine from Chapters Indigo in Ontario, I am sneeking peeks under my desk, can’t wait to get home and read it. It looks great.

  3. Thanks to everyone, everyone. You know, I actually sat down and read it again and I enjoyed it, too! It’s hard to have perspective on something you work so hard/long at, but I tried to distance. I saw stuff to make better for next issue and a lot of things that just looked…good! Thanks to all for the positive feedback and please, let us know if there’s stuff you want to see, stuff you want more/less of, etc. 🙂

  4. I’ve decided to make Blonde Redhead and Irish Chain quilts. I love using a lot of solids and these patterns will show them off nicely. I love the first issue. I’ve seen it on sale a few different places. I bought mine the day it launched. Thank you!

  5. Mary, the magazine is SLAMMIN !! I have read it several times. I will not loan it out. I told all my quilting friends to run, not walk to get this treasure. Thank You !

  6. I picked up the first issue of Quilty and LOVE it! I’m not a very experienced quilter, but enjoy learning. Your magazine had some great tips and I’m hoping to get started sewing and using some of these to make my quilts better!

  7. I love the magazine! I am going to save scraps for the Pink Waves quilt. The patterns featured are all very nice, I love the mix of traditional and modern…and I especially enjoyed the nice touch of the poem on page 61.
