Men Quilt Too!

I am honored to be included in this Blog Based Quilt Show for male quilters. Yes there are more and more men who are caught making quilts every year. I must admit I feel a bit confused by the guys starting to make it public that they make quilts. When I first started years back there were very few of us guys who were brave enough to confess that they made quilts, and now it is no longer such a rare thing. I love being recognized for my art, and yes, being a young male who makes quilts help me to get recognized. In the past several years I have met dozens of men who quilt, and some of them do absolutely terrific work. So now comes a time when I must welcome the other males into my world of recognition, and I do so with open arms, but I also now must raise the bar to myself, I have some seriously talented competition in the world of quilts made by men...
Cheers, Rob

Seven Sisters Quilt Show Weekend

The Seven Sisters Quilt Show weekend is finally here and I am so excited!
As many of you know, I have taken over The Cotton Ball from my Mom, and boy do I miss having her around. Especial during the special events.
However, my Beautiful Wife, Jenny has been helping me make sure things run smooth and look great. I just wanted to share a photo of her setting up our booth at the Madonna Expo Center for this weekends big quilt show. If you are in SLO, come on by and meet my lovely assistant, get a hug or two and take advantage of our two show specials. Half yards are normally $5.50 each, they will be two for $9.00 both at the show and at The Cotton Ball in Morro Bay. We also have the awesome new adjustable height cutting tables from The Grace Frame co, this weekend only $475. 00 with FREE assembly. See you this weekend, Rob
