Block Party book video

My twin sister, Cate, is a film editor.  Sometimes that comes in handy!!  Check out this great promo that she put together for Block Party.

The blog tour is starting on June 20th so say tuned for more details!

Hi everyone! Have you seen the latest issue of American Quilter Magazine?

AQS

There’s a big article in there about The Modern Quilt Guild and how Latifah and I started it!

It’s a great article! I love to see a traditional quilting magazine directly acknowledge the difference between modern and traditional quilters with a very positive and accepting “there’s room for all of us” sort of approach.

This has always been my personal feeling as well (I truly can’t comprehend some of the feelings out there – in either direction – we’re all quilters and most of the world thinks we’re all lame!) and it thrills me to see it reflected in the pages of a traditional quilting magazine. I thought I’d post the entirety of Christine Brown’s (the magazine’s editor) intro to the the issue because I truly appreciate what she has to say.

Hope you all have a great week. I know I will because I’ve finished up my latest freelance job and I’m back to sewing sewing sewing!!

Book signing party!

Another event for those of you in the Los Angeles area… A little party for my book, Block Party next Friday the 17th at Sew Modern!  Come say hello and have some wine and cheese.

All of the quilts from the book will be there too, so maybe you wanna come on by?? Hope to see you there!

If you're in LA, I hope you'll come to my signing party!

The Nice Baby Quilt is all finished.  So simple. It was perfect for needing to sew up a quick gift for friends.

I used lots of linen and Kona Ash which are very close in value. They really make the greens, yellows and bit of pink pop out of the blocks.

I used up my last bit of this Castle Peeps pink stripe with the binding and it was just a bit too short so I added some solid pink to make it long enough.

I’m finishing up my day job this week and will be back at full time quilting shortly! So many project and plans to tackle… I can’t wait!!
