Karen Gass, Founder & Editor of Cotton Spice
Spice Quilting Magazine explores a niche in the
quilting world called Contemporary Fresh. Every issue is
packed with regular columns such as The Q Files, by Beth
Brubaker - which tells the back story of the Quilt
Police in a hilarious continuing column, and a quick
project designed by The Diva Of Quilts - Laura Kong.
We regularly publish quilt fiction along with fresh new
quilt designs complete with instructions and templates
Cotton Spice Quilting Magazine publishes 4 times
a year - March, June, September and December and all
issues are FREE online.
Our website is packed with activities such as a bulletin
board, contests, and all back issues of Cotton Spice in
PDF files. Our BOM Challenge continues to be a popular
place and now we've launched the Breast Health Awareness
There is always something going on here. It's just a
matter of choosing what you want to do! We marketed our
magazine to 'quilters looking for something else' and
we've been providing it every time.

Tammy Harrison, Quilt Designing Computer Geek:
began quilting at the age of 19 - she was going to
cosmetology college and met a classmate whose
grandmother made quilts. When she saw one of those
quilts, she asked her to make her one. Soon after she
received the quilt, she read the saying, "When you sleep
under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love."
That was all it took, Tammy *knew* she had to learn how
to make quilts! Tammy had to make something with
love, that would be kept and used and loved back.
Tammy had to make something that she didn't have in her
own orphaned life - a quilt hug made with love.
then, Tammy has made hundreds of quilts (mostly for
kids, of course, who need a loving quilted hug,
too)...but, Tammy also found a working life in the
online world. Once she mastered successfully
working from home on the computer, she's decided it's
high time she combined her love of working at home with
her love of quilting -- hence, her four children call
her the Quilt Designing Computer Geek!
