They say no man is an island. And no quilter quilts on an island (except for quilters who, well, live on islands). But you know what we mean! No one has become a quilter completely on her own. Whether it’s a family member, a friend, or some other form of teacher, we all have someone to thank for cultivating our love of quilting. Tell us who you’d like to thank in this week’s question:

Who has been your quilting mentor?

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, March 3, for your chance to win. The winning answer will be posted on Wednesday, March 5, along with the next question.

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “Which colors play a leading role in your stash—and which are a no-show?” Here’s the winning comment, from Donna:

“Orange is my neutral! Freddie Moran was very influential in my early quilting journey. That said I like scrappy and there is not a color I have not used at least one time. Bonnie Hunter said it best: ‘If it’s still ugly, you haven’t cut it small enough.’” –Donna Adams in sunny/rain/snow covered Oregon

Congratulations, Donna! Look for an email about your free eBook.
