Hello Everyone,

It has been a while since my last blog post.  I have been frantically getting ready for Quilt Market.  This is going to be another very exciting Quilt Market for me as I am getting ready to launch some cool NEW things to the quilting industry.  I am super excited about them and hope that ALL of you will love them like I do!

The first thing that I am introducing is my Fresh Catch Batik Signature Fabric Collection with Island Batik.  With the rich classic colors of fall in New England, you will fall in love with the oranges, greens, and browns.  They are truly fabulous!  Fabrics will be available here.

Coupled with these, I have designed 6 new patterns that will be launched.  They will be available here on our site right after market for purchase as either a printed pattern or instant download.  I am sure you will love piecing them together... from modern... to a more traditional look there is something for everyone!  Patterns will be available here.

I also have partnered with Aurifil and will be launching two thread collections!!! Yippee!  I am in love with both.  The first collection, coordinates with the Fresh Catch Batik Collection.  They are luscious !!  I love each and I everyone that I chose!  A great addition to your thread stash!

The second collection pairs with my Splash of Color book!  These are bright and bold and will make your heart sing.  Perfect for that black and white and bright project.  AND another great addition to your thread stash.  The thread collections will be available here.

AND we have one more surprise up our sleeve... we are launching a template set too!!! This template set coordinates with one of our newest patterns and also with the Lava Lamps pattern from my book Splash of Color!!  It, too, will be available on our site.  The book is available here and the templates will be available here.

So if you are going to Quilt Market OR if you know of your local Quilt Shop that will be there (tell them).... to stop by my Schoolhouse Session where I will preview ALL the above to the shops!  Don't miss it... Friday, October 28 Room 362D at 3:10.  Then I will also be in the Island Batik Booth 746 beginning on Saturday!

Hope to see you there! Say hello!  I hope you are all as excited as I am!!! Woohoo!!!!

Until Next Time...
