Busy in our slow time

My husband told me I need to blog more, so here goes…

I am starting to get very excited because the quilts for the new book are starting to come in! All of my quilts for the book are done and are currently in line for quilting. The girls from my very talented piecing team are finishing their assignments and returning the tops! Sarah is doing her usual extraordinary quilting (and the designs will be once again featured in the book). We’re on track for our deadline. Even though it’s not my first rodeo, it’s still stressful wondering will you make it!

Our “big” news is that we have signed on with Clothworks to do some pattern designing for their new fabric collections. Our first assignments arrived, and we already have some action!! Woo hoo – you’ll be seeing them soon.

Deb Stanley (my best bud) just finished a free pattern for a new collection of fabric from Elizabeth’s Studio, LLC. It’s on their website as a free download. www.elizabethsstudio.com This fabric will be available in April.

I’m getting ready to head up to The City Quilter next week for New York Beauty Simplified! I enjoy the train ride up there.

If you’re going out to the AQS Lancaster show on Thursday, head over to the author round table panel. It’s moderated by AQS Executive Editor Andi Reynolds and there will be several AQS authors (including myself!) who will be there to answer your questions – NO SUGAR COATING! Think up some good questions for us – not “where do babies come from”. Come on, we already KNOW they come from the cabbage patch.
Stop me if you see me and say hi! The big boy with me is NOT my bodyguard, he’s my hubby and he doesn’t bite!

Next month will be visits to the Pieceful Shores Quilters Guild in Manahawkin, New Jersey and then up to Vermont to The Stronghouse Inn and then the Champlain Valley Quilters.

OK, I’m blogged out.
