Mary + Pendennis + Quiltfolk Patterns : My First-Ever Vlog!

posted in: Quiltfolk, Work 35



I just had to talk to you about this, face-to-sorta-face! Announcing Quiltfolk Patterns is very exciting and I hope you like what we’re making. You will be amazed at the price we’ve set. You will be amazed at who we got as our first Revival Quilt designer. I’m so excited for July 4th I can’t stand it. I fly to New Orleans tomorrow. I hope this video isn’t too long, but it’s my first time vlogging!

It was actually pretty fun and I didn’t have to type!

    Seriously! Whaaat!!! This is so very happy news! This hits all the areas that interest me in quilting. I too love the new and modern but what moves me and excites me is the old, the mystery of the maker, fabric and happenings of the time. I imagiNe bringing this all to the forefront again. Old and new and fresh! I really feel like I have been tuning into the same frequency of what needs to happen next. I am hunting quilt tops that have been forgotten or abandoned with intentions of seeing them completed. Quilts that travel through time and space to be made must be special, right? Chills! Thank you Quiltfolk!!!

    Loved this.. and love the idea of the traditional quilts being used for inspiration – I love the “old” patterns. Also, that bookcase behind you is terrific.

    This is so exciting! Even while listening to your vlog, I was over perusing the website, signing up for early patterns and subscribing.
    By the way, spell check doesn’t care for the word vlog either. lol
    Anyway, I am so glad that I caught you today!
    God bless!!!

    I think you need to dig deeper…
    Why does it need to be a “famous quilter”?
    The idea is cool, but…..
    I don’t know..

    Wow, this is a little scary Mary?
    I was thinking of you so much today. I drove from Clarinda IA to Madison WI and stopped at the Iowa Quilt Museum. I was just blown away with the beautiful display of Victoria Wolfe Findlay’s work and her commentary. So I feel pretty sure that some time she will do one of the modern versions. Also with your theatre back ground you are more than a natural for doing Volgs. Also so excited for l the great things happening in your life now. Enjoy, Enjoy.

    I hope you do more vlogs! Congratulations on your promotion. I bought the magazine recently at Barnes and Noble to see what it’s like. I have not yet looked at it but look forward to reading and looking at beauty. There are some back issues I’d like if they’re still available, Iowa being one. I love your blog site, your Mom’s site on FB too. I feel like I know her from her MPT show. One of the best quilt teachers! I feel comforted by memories, when I see her show—memories like the love of fabric.

    Love seeing you again. I’ll probably never see you for real, so this was a big treat. I LOVE the new idea for “Quilt Folk”. Sort of like a grandparent and a grandchild getting together and sharing ideas. Super!

    Will the patterns be a part of our current subscription or will it be an extra subscription apart from our current plan? Sorry, I’m a bit confused. Sounds wonderful. I’ve been doing this for years – reproducing an antique quilt in it’s original colors and making another one in contemporary new fabrics.
