I purchased this issue of McCall's Quilting specifically because my blogging friend, Lucy of Quilting with the Past was mentioned in Ms. Holderman's article. I'm so excited for her! Here's what was said about her:

"One of Bonnie's friends, and fellow Maverick ring members, is Lucy Van Der Sluis ( of the Netherlands. Lucy is the most prolific quilter and blogger I have seen online. Oh, the beautiful quilts! Since she started her blog in late 2005, Lucy seems to have finished more projects than I imagine most quilters make in a lifetime. Like Bonnie, Lucy works with more traditional fabrics and has a really good eye for color and design."

On a side note, if you've followed Lucy's blog for a long time, you'll know that Bonnie is her best friend and an avid quilter from the USA. I've really enjoyed reading about their travels to one another's homes and their perspectives on travel and quilting in their native countries. If you'd like to read Bonnie's blog is called Quiltville's Quips and Snips. She shares some lovely quilt patterns there, by the way. I always enjoy reading her blog as well.
