International Spotlight: Argentina in The Quilt Life
This article in the June 2011 issue of The Quilt Life is one result of my spur-of-the-moment trip to Buenos Aires in March 2010 for the first Latin American Quilt Festival. Read about quilt exhibits in Buenos Aires and in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. (It was held in what used to be one of the worst prisons on the planet.) Quilting is just taking off in Argentina, thanks to some of the enthusiastic and dedicated quilters you'll meet in the article. I can't wait to go back!
Magnificent Spiral Mandala Quilts featured in מעשה בדים (Ma'ase Badim)
Thanks to Spiromaniac Ruth Shadar, Magnificent Spiral Mandala Quilts has been featured in Ma'ase Badim, the official magazine of the Israeli Quilters' Association (www.israeli-quilt.com). The article is in the December 2010 issue, No. 35, pages 17 & 25 (if you can read Hebrew). Spiromania is going global!
