Time's running out-Ask Roberta by March 8th!

We've got three super celebs lined up to take your questions in future issues—Roberta Horton in the August issue, John Flynn for October, and Barbara Brackman in the December issue. If you have questions for Roberta, one of the most talented and respected names in quilting today, you'd better hurry! Monday, March 8th is the last day you can submit questions to this quilting celebrity. My favorite books of Roberta's are Plaids & Stripes; The Fabric Makes the Quilt; and Scrap Quilts: The Art of Making Do. That last one has to be one of my all-time favorite quilt books. Roberta travels a lot and picks up fabrics everywhere she goes. That book has lots of sample of her travel photos and the fabrics. There are some wonderful pictures of Eklutna in Alaska, along with the quilt that resulted from that trip. I liked it so much that I had to take a cruise to Alaska to see that place. Unsuccessful, though, and will have to back for another try at Eklutna.
    Think up some good questions for world traveler and scrap maven Roberta. Ask away!


  1. Does Roberta have any plans to visit Australia soon? There are lots of quilters over here wanting classes with international tutors.

  2. How does Roberta go about designing a scrap quilt? Does she choose the quilt pattern first or does she let the "scraps" speak to her and lead her to the design? What are her favorite color palettes?
