Quiltfolk magazine's next issue is about North Carolina, and I'm so excited that I'm going to be featured in it! I baked these NC cookies (that's our state flag design) for the camera and writing crew who came to visit me in mid April.
Quiltfolk is a beautifully produced ad-free 180-page magazine that's really more like a series of books. Four are created each year. The NC issue should be out in July.

BLUE WATER FILM FESTIVAL

The festival, held June 2-8, 2022, “encourages attendees to think broadly about how climate change affects planet Earth and think deeply about the universal concerns and actions needed to bring us into balance.”
