Sayonara

It’s now time to pass the reins. I enjoyed creating this blog and photographing quilt exhibitions and highlighting the work of quilters I met along the way. Now I’m more interested in actually creating quilts than reporting on it and while I am retiring from the Plaid Portico, I am thrilled that the Plaid Portico still lives on–and images of all the quilts that are on it too. Lisa Carey has generously offered to take over the blog, and it will still be about quilts, though curated through a new lens.  Thank you Lisa, and thank you all for tuning in, and happy creating!
