Good News is always appreciated here. I was very excited to find out last week that my Jubilee Quilt has been accepted to compete at the AQS Lancaster quilt show. My favorite part of paperwork is the press release which always sounds so official and serious. According to the release, the contest will include 200 quilts from 36 states and 9 other countries and be visited by more than 15,000 people.
It is such a great way to start off a new year! I look forward to attending. Click here for all the details on visiting the show.
On New Year's Eve I cut and laid out the next block in my Alice Payne quilt. That's a lot of leaves to baste and stitch!
I've been doing some construction work on house blocks for a little swap I'm in.
I've added a Liberated House workshop (with permission from Gwen Marston). There is a button on my side bar with a link to my lecture and workshops page. I'd love to visit your guild and sew with you!
I'm making a boy quilt for a family friend. I decided to use Sujata's book, Cultural Fusion, as inspiration for these zig zag blocks. Check out her blog, The Root Connection, to read more about her book. The book has many wonderful quilts and photos to inspire any quilter. (the light is bad today and these colors don't look quite right.)
Lastly, here is coco at her "Howl-a-day" party at doggie school.
I don't know why but these photos crack me up. She looks so silly yet, so serious! What a sweet girl.
Thanks for stopping by~
