Pat Sloan and I go back a long way…she is super nice person and fun to hang out with…We are both blessed to be MODA designers and if you want to listen to our chat we had today we had lots to talk about.
I am on a roll, the move stalled my stitching a bit but…I do a little unpacking each day and I’ve made lots of progress..I also had a little overnight visitor this last weekend! Little Man loves Grandma & Papa’s house….he explored and explored and opened every door that had a handle…
He loved the big window with the quilted bench pad…I made the long panels and Vegas Val quilted it and added some thoughtful touches…You can’t tell but the bench pad is 12 feet long!!! But I’m glad I took the time to do it…It adds a nice touch to the dining room….It is shown here where they converted my quilt “pieces” into the bench pad. Fockels Drapery which is conveniently located right across the street from my studio…I have all the book projects done…all the directions written…just waiting for a few quilts to come back from my A-mazing quilters!!! I’d be lost without Linda and Val. Book will be printed in the middle of this month! Thanks to all those Applique-ers who got these blocks back to me in a most timely manor…will do a post about this quilt after it comes back from Val.
I have started all the SBOW’s (Summer Block of the Weeks) and figured out all the particulars with Jess and I am ready to stitch away…so here is a peek here on the pieced version called Among Friends….I giving you this early peek so we can order fabric ahead because we are giving you a choice of red, black, dark navy(this is what I picked) medium navy and brown…!!! This quilt will have 1056 fabric in it!!!! How awesome is that! Click here to sign up and reserve your color choice…AMONG FRIENDS
Did you know it is Spring Market time in the quilt world! I have a new line being offered at Market…I don’t know if I can talk about it yet…but I have 2 quilts designed and I just finished the directions today and we are starting to cut and stitch this week! I also am thinking about doing a simple folky BOM with it…will show you this soon also…as soon as I get the “ok” to let the cat out of the bag…
We also snuck in finishing 3 new quilts from The Farmer’s Son- Wool & Needle Flannel line coming in May..I cut out all the quilts, and only pieced on, Farmer’s Market, but Amy, aka the pressing Queen, got to stitch the other two while I was on the road teaching…I’m bummed because Crop Circles was super easy, … I love stitching super easy…then Heritage star is just an amazing quilt and very traditional but very current at the same time. We will be getting these on the website soon…all these pics are “in progress” so will post again with finished quilted quilts!!!
