Hello Everyone,

Wow!  Quilt Market was fabulous... I was busy, busy everyday!!!  A good busy though.  While I worked in my booth everyday, I did get time to walk the floor and see some of the new things that fabric companies and designers were showing.  But it was also so much fun seeing many of my friends that I hadn't seen in a while.

Hello Everyone,

I am super excited about a NEW video series that I will be doing.... Watch Me Wednesday!!!  I will be doing a LIVE feed every Wednesday (with a few exceptions... I will let you know what they are) where I will be in my studio talking about what I am up to, maybe showing a technique or tutorial, visiting with my Quilt Inspectors number 1 and 2... the kitties, showing some projects, new fabric, mini trunk shows, new notions or gadgets, and giveaways!!!

Here is a little taste of what Watch Me Wednesday will be like....

Hello Everyone,

Whew!  Friday was a busy day!  I spent most of the day in my booth chatting with lots of people, shop owners, other designers, magazine reps, and catching up with lots of old friends too!  I was so invigorated by all the ideas and inspiration, it was hard to go to sleep that night.    I would like to share with you a video that I did giving you a tour of the booth!

Hello Everyone,

Well Thursday was invigorating and tiring all at the same time.  It started off with going to the Island Batik Booth to drop off some things for booth set up and for my schoolhouse later in the day.  Lugged the suitcase from the hotel to the convention center....

Hello Everyone,

I arrived safe and sound in St. Louis!  But before heading to my hotel, I was picked up at the airport by Cookie and Julie from Batiks Plus.  I was blown away by their hospitality.  And I got to see their shop.  The shop is mainly online... but if you are in the area, it is not to be missed.

Hello Everyone,

In my last blog post, I told you about my crazy April filled with tons of travel and teaching.  When I got back, I quickly got onto creating quilts and prepping for Quilt Market.  In between, that the hubs and I were able to escape for three days to Las Vegas!  It was nice to kind of be unplugged for a weekend.

Hello Everyone,

I can't believe that it has been an entire month since my last blog post!! That is how fast time goes by when you are so busy.  The entire month of April I was basically away teaching.  I was teaching on a Quilting Cruise, which was so much fun!  So much fun that I am doing another one next May... maybe you will join me.  Check it out on my schedule here.

Hello Everyone,

One of the things that I am loving most about living in the desert is spring time!  Things all started to bloom in the beginning of March and it has been an endless stream of beautiful flowers and blooms since.  I thought I would share some of the many pics I have taken throughout the month.  WARNING:  Color drenched blog post!  Enjoy!!!

Hello Everyone,

WOW... have I been busy!  Busy meeting some deadlines... writing and proofing patterns.  I love the whole design process, but out of everything that I design and do... writing patterns is my least favorite part of the process.  But it is done!  Woohoo!

Now onto the next deadline.  I have designed more quilts for my fall line of fabric with Island Batik and the fabric just arrived, so I will be putting those quilts together in the next coming weeks.  But before I really dig into it, I managed to make a NEW quilt for my own bed.  And it was high time too!  The quilt that we have on our bed I made almost 17 years ago!!!

Hello Everyone,

I know that you haven't seen a ton of activity from me recently, I have been busy with some personal things as of late.  That has taken me away from doing what I love to do best... is quilting!!!  But I am slowly getting back into the groove.

Hello Everyone,

Friday was a great day at Road To California.  I taught one of my most favorite quilts that I have designed.... my Island Breeze Quilt.  I remember when I designed this quilt and Island Batik loved the design and asked if I would use their fabrics.  Woohoo!  Then it ended up on the cover of Quilt Magazine.  It was a thrill for me!

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was my second day of teaching at Road to California.  On this day, I taught my Seeing Spots pattern from my book Splash of Color.  I really enjoy teaching this class as it is as much about piecing, tips, techniques, as it is about color and design!  And boy did this group love to play.  We had a great time!
