                                           Sampling from 4 boxes of quilt magazines.

Magazines ----Old magazines---4 boxes bought at an estate sale from 1970's forward. Very interesting. Lots of templates. Lots of traditional designs for quilts. I've read and read and read. Little representation of AA quilters or other American Ethnic groups. In Dec. /Jan. 2010 issue of QN there was a letter by a reader who excoriated the editors for printing 3 pages of quilts made to celebrate the election of President Obama. Looking back over 50 years of quilting magazines, and seeing perhaps 5 AA quilters represented in those 3 boxes of magazines, I wondered why that reader was so angry at 3 pages.
