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!

Hello Everyone,

Remember that saying... "Too many irons in the fire?".  Well right now, I am working on so many different projects at the same time it is making my head spin a bit.  But I am almost sure that none of you do the same thing.... wink, wink??!!

Here are a few of the things that I am working on right now.  First up, I made new binding to put on another quilt.  That will be going on today... then I will have to do the hand sewing.

Hello Everyone,

For those of you that follow me, you know that this fall at Quilt Market I launched my first fabric line with Island Batik, Fresh Catch  I was extremely excited at that time and as the time draws near for the fabric to be shipped to our shop and shops worldwide for all of you to use, I would like to do a little giveaway!

Hello Everyone,

It has been a little while since I wrote this blog post about my scrappy quilt and bet that some of you are wondering where I am at on that quilt?  Well, I have definitely made a ton of progress.  But what I had originally set out to do by making a block a day didn't transpire as my teaching schedule had called for me to be out of town quite a bit.

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited about the next couple of weeks.  One of the things that I know that I have not been doing is blogging as of late... but that is going to change!  I will be blogging over the next few weeks regularly, yup I said regularly (well whatever that means... LOL).  Anyway, that will involve a line up of giveaways! And hopefully, updates on what I am up to as well.
