I have something fun to share!

I’m excited (and honored!) to be included in the latest issue of Quiltfolk magazine that is out today–Quiltfolk 19.

If you are unfamiliar with Quiltfolk, it’s a really well done, ad-free publication profiling quilts and makers around the country. Each issue focuses on one state–or half a state, as is the case with the latest issue devoted to “Northern Florida.” (As someone born and raised in the state, we say “North,” “South” and “Central Florida” but small details…) I’m super honored to be included and representing Central Florida in this issue.

There are many wonderful things about Quiltfolk, but one that makes it so special is how they send a team of writers and photographers on site to get the best feeling for whatever they are covering. They had to make a few adjustments during Covid, but it was really fun to host a small Quiltfolk team a couple of months ago. They graciously captured images from my home and studio (above) as well as some of my favorite local spots like the clay roads and my parents’ ranch (below).

The people at Quiltfolk have generously let me share images from the shoot, which I’m delighted to share with you here and in the future. A couple of the projects above (from the top) are a collage in my studio, a mini Everglade quilt, me in my studio with my Spools quilt, and my latest Aerial project under a Live Oak at my parents’ ranch.

If you’d like to pick up a copy of the magazine (or anything else in their shop) they’ve given me a coupon code to share with you for 20% off your purchase. Use “CarolynQF19” at checkout between July 1 – 31, 2021.

    What wonderful news! Can’t wait see your feature. That image of the Aerial quilt is stunning. Quiltfolk is a beautiful publication, and I hope this means they will begin including more modern quilters and designers.

    It might interest others that international subscriptions are perfectly possible! I just subscribed to the Quilt Folk magazine – international shipping for the year including back issues is only 23$ to London in the U.K. which matches the discount offered by your wonderful voucher. I will love this so much.

    I am so happy they featured you Carolyn – you are such a talented artist!

      That’s so awesome, Birgitte! Thanks for the heads up, and I really appreciate you! 🙂
