Europe's Patchwork & Quilt Journal includes Patt's work.

Several weeks ago, I was contacted by a lovely quilt magazine editor Gabi Maier from Vienna. I was honored to have been recognized at all, and even more thrilled when asked if her German language magazine might include an article on some of my work. Pictures sent for her option to choose. Questions answered and low and behold, I learned there would be several pages dedicated to my work.  It turned out to be 7, including 3 pages dedicated to one quilt:  " My Gentle Giant Ben."
 The magazine arrived in my mail yesterday and what a shock when I opened the package. On the front cover... my piece "Proud Hertitage" which honored local friend and former Padua Hills Theater ( Claremont, California, U S A )  folk dancer: Margie Torrence.
Everything inside the magazine is in German. I feel pretty dumb. I can't read an article about my own work.  I do know how I answered  questions though so I imagine I pretty much know what it says... "somewhere in there anyway."   What an honor!  Thanks Gabrielle!!
