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!!

I got some good sewing time in this weekend after weeks away from my machine. It was so nice to be reunited.  I took the time to work on a baby quilt for some friends having a baby girl. Their last name is Nice so I made The Nice Baby Quilt!

I picked fabric…

And I got the whole thing quilted and bound!

Binding

Just the hand stitching of the binding now and I’ll be done. Sometimes it’s really nice to sew up a fast quilt.

Hope you all enjoyed your long weekends as much as I did!

All Block Party all the time!

The reason I went to Market in the first place is that Kristen and I were promoting Block Party.

We did a schoolhouse (which are these 30 minute presentations) to tell shop owners about the book.

We talked and talked (something that Kristen and I have no problems doing! ha!)…

and we showed all of the quilts that the Block Partiers made for the bee and book.

Jacquie and Rashida, who were both in the bee, were nice enough to help us out with the quilt holding!

Then the next day we had a super fun book signing!
