Quilter in National Museum - Spencer Magnet Article

My latest article for the Spencer Magnet, "Quilter's talent runs free," is available for viewing.

I had such a wonderful interviewing Jan Darnell, whose quilt will be on exhibit at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY this fall. She was gracious enough to invite me into her home, and show me not only her horse quilt that you will see in the article, but also several other quilts that she has made or quilted for others. She was also patient with my three year old daughter, which is always nice. I know the average reporter (although I'm not sure that word describes me) doesn't take her children to interviews, so I am especially thankful that it has worked out for me to take her with me so far.

I hope you enjoy the story. If you get a chance, take the time to visit the exhibit "A Horse's Tale" in Paducah. Darnell's quilt is amazing in person, and I'm betting the other quilts will be beautiful too.
