Reader Letters and Photos
Have You Made A Quiltmaker Quilt?
We love to see quilts made from our patterns! Send us your digital images and we’ll consider it for publication in our magazine features, Sew to Speak or Spotlight. Please send clear, focused images with adequate lighting. Include a photo of the entire quilt and a close-up of any interesting details. Try to minimize busy backgrounds and extraneous objects.
Email your digital images to email@example.com. Please include the name of the pattern, the size of the quilt, a short note about why you made the quilt, any awards received and any other details our readers might enjoy.
