How are you? It is snowing here today.
I love snow but to be honest, I am just about done with it this year. Snow is always so pretty but… so is blue sky and 70 degree temps!
This is how Lily is spending the day. She is NOT a fan of snow.
This week I spent a dew days taping a quilt class up in Golden CO at the F&W studios. What a blast I had! The group they have there was terrific to work with and they made my job easier. Thank you guys!
Of course, it is never easy for me to tape a show. I get so nervous before I start and then, once each taping session is over, I can’t even remember what I said!
This is a picture of the set for one of the lessons. Since I was making small projects, I got to decorate the set with quilts from the book and some of my magazine quilts. I tried to choose ones that coordinated with my projects.
The class will go live in July on craftonlineuniversity.com. I will keep you posted on the details.
I love when my quilts end up on the cover of a magazine. It really is such a thrill to see. And this was super special because my daughter, Alyssa, pieced the quilt top for me. I was so busy that month and she came to the rescue.
This is the June/July issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. The quilt, Sea Glass, was quilted by the amazingly talented Crystal Zagnoli of the The Quilted Cricket. I love it! The fabric is by P&B Textiles called Soft Dreams.
Oh- I almost forgot! I have 2 quilts in this issue! This is a little banner that I made that they also included- isn’t it cute?
It is called Book Nook.
This quilt, Mix it Up, was in the McCall’s Quilting May/June issue that I showed a couple of weeks ago. But, since I now have a magazine to give away, I am showing it off again! Love this one too.
I was in a quilt shop the other day and was looking at fabric. I saw fabric from this line, Mixology, on the shelf and I was thinking, wow, I really like this fabric. Then I realized, wait a second, I know why I like it, I used it in this quilt! Silly me.
So, onto the giveaway!!
I have 3 magazines to giveaway. One McCall’s Quilting and 2 McCall’s Quick Quilts. How cool is that?
Leave me a comment on this post and I will draw 3 winners on Sunday night, May 1st, after 9pm (my time). As always, if you are signed up for my newsletter, you get an extra chance- IF you leave a separate comment.
(If you want to let me know which magazine you would prefer, I will try to accommodate you depending in how it goes when I draw names. First name pulled gets first choice.)
Next week is the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks vol 13 blog tour. It starts on Monday May 2nd and I will have links for you here on the blog.
My day on the tour is Wed May 4th so be sure to come back for that!
Have a great weekend!
