I’ve got lots of cool new things to share with you!
Have you heard about my brand new CRAFTSY QUILT-ALONG? It begins December 1st, but it isn’t too late to sign up to get your kit of absolutely gorgeous fabrics! I’m excited to tell you that I chose these fabrics myself and I think the finished quilt may be one of my absolute favorites of all time. Seriously — the fabrics are luscious and the quilt is beautiful! And you can make one just like it while learning to make absolutely FLAWLESS flying geese units in no time at all! Choose between the traditional method or my EZ Flying Geese Ruler method; I have so many great tips and tricks for you no matter which method you choose! This is an awesome photo-tutorial-style workshop (no video lessons this time) but you still get ALL the benefits of the Craftsy platform and exclusive platform interaction with other students and me!
The exquisite machine quilting was done by the very talented, Carolyn Archer of Ohio Star Quilting. If you are interested in having her quilt YOUR Spangled Stars quilt the same way, leave a comment and I’ll send you her contact information. She is a very busy gal who’s always in demand and she’s taking very few new clients these days but since you’re a friend of mine…..well, I think she’ll make an exception!

Just bursting with excitement and pride…..
Earlier this year a dream of mine came true when the editors and photographers of American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine came to visit me here at my home for several days. They did a full photo shoot and interview and although everyone worked very hard for those few days, we had the best time together! I couldn’t tell you all about it (although I was just about to burst from excitement at not being able to share….) until NOW. The newest issue of APQ magazine (February 2015) is on newsstands and in retail outlets now! There are lots of gorgeous photos in this issue from my studio and house. Here’s a quick sneak peek:
Plus I have a brand new quilt project featured in this issue called, TRANSITIONS. It is made with gorgeous, gradated batiks and a kit of fabrics to make this spectacular quilt is now available through SewBatik! (CLICK HERE for more information and to request information about the kit!)
The TRANSITIONS quilt was exquisitely quilted by my friend, Birgit Schueller, and you can check out her website HERE. I hope you’ll pick up a copy if you’re not already an APQ subscriber!

And on a personal note…….
I apologize that my blog posts have been few and far between in recent months. In all honesty, I was dealing with a very stressful situation concerning my parents and getting them relocated from their home in Florida to North Carolina. Very unexpectedly, my sweet Dad passed away a couple of weeks ago and we had to move my Mom to an assisted living facility near my brother. This has been an unimaginably difficult couple of months but I appreciate all the kind words, prayers, and good thoughts sent our way by so many of you. I have read and re-read every single comment, card, Facebook message and email. It is very comforting to have caring friends at a time like this. My Dad was a wonderful, kind man with a heart for God. I’m sure he’s with the angels in heaven — probably organizing a pinochle game! Thank you again for your compassion and understanding.
God bless you, Pop!
