Workshop day

I had a fun day today with the Country Quilters in Topeka, Kansas. I taught the workshop that goes with my Stash Attack lecture. After the lecture back in July, they asked me to come back and do a workshop. All the ladies were so nice and they all seemed to enjoy the class.
They were lined up along both walls sewing away. I only thought to snap one picture, so here’s the group on this side of the room.

My sister rode along with me, so while we were in Topeka, we went to the Stitching Traditions quilt shop. Nice shop with lots of fabric! I bought a couple of FQ’s that I had to buy. Don’t know what I’ll do with them, but they were too cute not to buy!! LOL!!

Guess that’s it for now. Tomorrow will be a full day of quilting, writing and sewing!


Design wall Monday 9/22/14 fabric…….

Earlier this year I sent in a book proposal to Martingale Publishing Co. Much to my surprise, they accepted my proposal and I am currently working on writing, and getting the quilts made for the book. So this past weekend I finished up one of the quilts and designed a baby quilt. Today I got the baby quilt cut out and sewn together. I would love to show my work on the design wall…………but……………sorry, you’ll have to wait for the book! LOL! I can tell you that I have a cute little baby quilt top hanging on my design wall. 🙂
I picked up several baby/kid print fabrics over the summer knowing that I had to make a couple of baby quilts. I decided to use this one first.

That’s it for me today. Better get back to work, that deadline is fast approaching!!

Have a good day!

Wednesday’s works

It’s a rainy day here in Kansas, but that’s ok because i am in my workroom getting as much done as i can! I’m almost finished with the quilt on this machine. I’m using one of my favorite pantagraph patterns on it.


I finished this custom one and just took it off the other machine.

I love when I can work feathers into them. 🙂

Meanwhile, over at the sewing machine, I sit down every once in a while and sew a few more strips for a strip quilt.


I have a class coming up at my LQS and need to get the info to them, so they’ll have it when people sign up. I also have a workshop next week that I’m teaching, so I need to make sure I have everything in line for it. And then there is my BIG project that I’m working on, which I haven’t mentioned. But I try to work on it a bit each day too. Somedays there just isn’t enough hours! LOL!!
Hope you’re having a productive day!!


Design wall Monday 9/15/14

Guess I should post something, it’s been too long since I’ve done that. My design wall has stayed the same for weeks. I’ve been too busy with other things going on. I was looking for some fabric the other day and ran across this panel that I bought last summer. In looking at it, I thought, hmm….I wonder if that could be worked in with those blocks over on the wall…….? So I put it up and now I have to come up with a way to make it fit……..

I think the colors work great together. So that’s the plan, as of today! LOL!!
