Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I had another great Watch Me Wednesday!  I so enjoyed talking about my African Fabric Stash and the quilt that I made for my husband.  What fun it is to collect those fabrics.  Do you have any "specialty" or "out of the ordinary" fabrics that you collect?

Hello Everyone,

Are you familiar with Quilty Box?  I am, and they are pretty cool!  Down to the nitty gritty, it is a surprise for a quilter in a box, every month!  How cool is that?

I have received several and can't wait for more.  So what's inside the box?

Take a look at what was inside my November, 2017 box and then... read on....

Hello Everyone,

I hope you enjoyed Monday's blog post about Quilt Market.  It is truly an adventure for me every year.  I love it!! So much creativity in one place.  This year was different for me though.... I stayed through, with my friend Lisa, and took a class at Quilt Festival on Tuesday, Market ended on Monday.  Then we took a tour around Houston.  This was something I had never done.

Hello Everyone,

It has been a very long 2 weeks!  Accept my apologies for not blogging for so long.... I spent a week and a half in Houston for Market (wholesale trade show - non public)  and Festival (public event).  What a whirlwind!  Not only were these events in town, but the world series was taking place too!  The town was hopping to say the least.  Meeting up with friends that I haven't seen in some cases a year, is always fun.

So I wanted to show you a few things from Market first. My friend Lisa came along to help me!  The first day was spent at Schoolhouse.  I presented my own schoolhouse with my newest fabric line, Blue Moon.  Cool and bold blues paired with purples make up this fantastic collection.  The yardage is due into shops in January and February.  But I have some of the pre-cuts available now here in my shop!!

Here are some of the pics from my schoolhouse where I showed my quilts and projects from the line.  I loved designing and creating these patterns and they are available on my site too by clicking here! In addition to the ones that I created, some of my designer friends also played with my fabric in their own designs too!!!

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I had so much fun talking about curves on my Watch Me Wednesday Episode 14.  Have you ever wanted to try a curve but are slightly intimidated?  They really are so much fun to do and add such interest to a quilt.

Hello Everyone,

Would you like to make a Pop Up?  What, you don't know what a Pop Up is??? I know you will want to make one because they are these "spring like" baskets that squash down and travel anywhere.  You can use them to catch threads, hold a soda can... anything!  They make great gifts too!
