Enough silliness. I make quilts. Some of my friends want them. Many of those friends are too nice to speak up, because there’s a weird stigma in telling a hobbyist “I’d love one of these, in this color, and this size!” when, in fact, the hobbyist in question would love some feedback. So I’m giving you the opportunity to speak up semi-anonymously. Your answers stay private between you and me.
I don’t promise that filling out this form means you’re magically gonna get something. It does mean that I’ll know you’re interested, and have some idea of what you’d enjoy having. A few designs I have in my head don’t have recipients attached to them yet, and baldly asking what my friends are interested in would help me pair ideas with recipients. I’ll never have enough time to make all the quilts in my head, so I want the ones I do make to go to homes where they’ll be used and loved.
You have my blessing and encouragement to speak up. Some of you are local friends. Some of you are co-workers. Some of you are faraway friends. Some of you are fellow dragon*con, techops, or drupal community members.

Have we talked? Have we emailed back and forth? Do we pester each other on twitter / facebook / some other social media site? Are we in the same social circle? Were you part of Jeff’s social group back in college? Do we hug, eat lunch together, or wave hello at drupalcon or dragoncon? Then you should speak up. You’re someone I want to hear from. I won’t think you forward and I won’t think you grabby.
