Hello Everyone,

I just had a marathon session in binding 6 quilts!  Over the past 6 days I bound, put a sleeve, and a label on 6 different quilts.  These quilts are all headed to Island Batik for my January 6, 2017 deadline.

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.

Hello Everyone,

Whew!!! It is my month for my block... can I get a YAY!!!???  My block is called the Shining Star and it is paper pieced.  For those of you who know me, you know how much I LOVE to paper piece!  So designing this block was second nature.  I am thankful to Pat and Jane for including me in this phenomenal line up of designers.  Aren't the blocks just wonderful???

Hello Everyone,

27 years ago today, I married the best man ever!  It is absolutely the best decision I ever made in my life.  He grounds me, supports me, makes me laugh, is a great father, loves my family and ME, and is pretty easy on the eyes too.

Hello Everyone,

One of the best parts of Quilt Market is getting to see the show quilts before Quilt Festival begins.  There are approximately 1700 quilts on display and all are simply amazing!!  I am going to share just a few of the quilts here... I took a ton of pics and created an album on Facebook.

Hello Everyone,

Attending Quilt Market is always a fun experience. (Warning!!! Picture heavy post!!!) Not only do we get to see new products and designs being introduced into the industry, but we meet up with friends and colleagues that we haven't seen in a while.  All while doing this we are in AWE of all the great things that are being shown at market.

Hello Everyone,

After introducing you to my quilts, I am super excited to give you a little video tour of what my booth looked like at market!  I had fun with my hubs setting it up. During market many people came by and seemed to really like the quilts and fabric.

Let me take you on a tour...

Hello Everyone,

Schoolhouse is always a super exciting part of Quilt Market.  It is when we go from room to room and learn about new products, quilt designs... and so much more from the creators!  It is also when we run into people that we may not have seen for over a year or so!  Kind of like a homecoming!  It is lots of fun. This year prior to my schoolhouse, I was able to attend a few and had a great time doing so.  The first one that I attended was my friend Sharyn Cole's Schoolhouse from The Tuffet Source.

Hello Everyone,

On Thursday October 27, and we quickly got to work!  The hubs came with me again because I was launching my first fabric line and patterns with Island Batik.  After a quick lunch we headed over to the convention center, picked up our badges.  We went onto the market floor and found Island Batik first.  We checked out the layout of the booth so that on Friday we could hang up my quilts after I presented them at schoolhouse.

Hello Everyone,

I have been super busy getting ready for Fall Quilt Market and the launch of my new fabric line and I am already working on my new spring line.  But amongst all the hub bub of deadlines, I picked up a quilting book and saw a great scrap quilt!  I had this overwhelming feeling of "I HAVE to make this NOW" kind of thing.  Have you ever felt this before??? I have but actually never acted on it.... honestly!

Hello Everyone,

As you know, I have been settling into my new home and still working on setting up my studio, just a little bit left to do.  Two things that needed to be done were the design wall and the thread racks. This past weekend my hubby and I got them done!  I couldn't say that I am more pleased than ever!
