Hello Everyone,

I have a wonderful book to share with you, but first a funny story.  Barbara Cline author and quilters extraordinare came out with this new book Amazingly Simple Triangle Stars in September of 2015.  Because I had reviewed one of her other books, I immediately became intrigued with the new book.  So I went ahead and made my purchase.  And boy was I thrilled.

Hello Everyone,

I know that you are familiar with my book Splash of Color, but did you know that many of the designs in the book, I designed with EQ?  Yup!  Not all but some and EQ made a great process even better!

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I told you I would be working up a new little project with the Boundless fabrics.  And I can tell you that I did and I love how it is turning out so far.  So love the feel and look of this fabric, but better yet how it looks in this log cabin/geese project.

Hello Everyone,

About a week ago I blogged about a fabric line called Boundless.  They are all solids and are exclusive to Craftsy.  If you are like me, you love solids.  They are so versatile and add that extra somethin', somethin' to your project.

Hello Everyone,

Yup, that is right, I have begun a new project!  Another Judy Niemeyer design, Tea Leaf Table Runner.  The colors I chose aren't really leaf like though.  They are more like me... LOL!!!

Hello Everyone,

In my last blog post about my Prairie Star quilt, I was almost done!  I just had to put the outside borders on.  Well, guess what the quilts complete!  I am very excited at how it turned out too.

Hello Everyone,

Being asked to be a Designer for the Splendid Sampler was such an honor for me.  But another great part of the Splendid Sampler is actually making all the other blocks too!!! Because I have many deadlines, sometimes it is hard to keep up.  But yesterday, I actually had some time and made three more blocks!

Hello Everyone,

After a very busy few days, I was able to work on getting my Prairie Star together.  But first that required me taking papers off.  One of the things that I always tell my students is that the easiest way to take paper off is to have someone else do it for you.... LOL!  This time it was me and myself doing it while watching a little TV.

Hello Everyone,

One of the things that we like most as quilters is fabric.  Fabric allows us to create.  Creating is what I love to do most, but choosing my fabrics is always so much fun.  Many of us love solids too!  When Craftsy asked if I would review a NEW solids line that they have, I jumped at the chance.

Hello Everyone,

Did you ever have just a little bit of time and want to deviate and do something different?  I did on Thursday!  I had just two hours and I decided to make these cute little "pods".  These seem to be all the rage at the moment and I must say, I can see why!

Hello Everyone,

In my last blog post I was able to show you how far I had gotten with my Compass Rose Table Runner.  I have made great progress and had some terrific help from my Quilt Inspectors too.  I just love them!

Hello Everyone,

Tuesday was a great day!  I taught a great workshop with the Silver City Quilt Guild in Raynham, MA.  These ladies were totally awesome.  They really rocked the class.  You will see why in a second!

Hello Everyone,

Last weekend on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I taught a Boot Camp for the Paradise in Blooms technique of the month.  These ladies are hardcore Judy Niemeyer fans and love working on her designs.  This had been planned for many months and they came totally prepared!  I wanted to share with you what they accomplished.

Hello Everyone,

A week ago Sunday was the third session of the Glacier Star Class.  And WOW!, everyone is making such phenomenal progress!  I am so proud of all my students.  The Lone Star portion of the Glacier Star is turning out so fabulous.

Let's see how they all look!  One common theme that I find when I teach is that quilters tend to be drawn to colors that they wear!  So take note when looking at the photos.

Hello Everyone

Last week I shared my progress on my Prairie Star quilt.  I made quite a bit of head way and all the units are now complete!  I just need to join them.  Do you ever get that great feeling of satisfaction when you have completed components even when the whole quilt is not yet complete?

Hello Everyone,

Many of you already know of the Splendid Sampler.  If you don't, please go here for all the information and the FREE blocks that are currently out that you can make all year long.  

I am one of the designers of one of the blocks that will be featured this year.  But I also want to follow along and make the other blocks by my fellow designers too!  After many hectic days of purging the house and meeting other deadlines, I finally had time to start and follow along with Block #1.  This block was designed by my friend Pat Sloan.

Hello Everyone,

Whew!  Now that we filmed the class, we get to launch it!  That is super exciting for me and hopefully you too!  One of the things that I love to do most is to teach and to get the opportunity to teach you something that I love makes me even more happy.
