So many projects, so little time!

Hi friends!

How are you? This time of year is very busy for me as Quilt Market is coming up again in May. So I am working hard to get new patterns ready to go, making the quilts, taking photos, creating handouts… the list of TO DO items is long!

New pattern: Savannah Squares

 

So I have not done some other quilty stuff. 🙁

Of course, either way I get to make quilts, so I guess it is all OK!

Sneak Peek: Saybrook Signals

 

One project I can’t wait to start uses this wonderful pile of fabrics from my friend Josie Severson – she sells these fabrics here on her website and on her ETSY site.

She has canvas fabric, cotton jersey, cotton sateen (which is what I am using), organic fabric and other home goods like pillows and coasters all using her hand drawn designs. They are super cool!

I have been anxious to start playing with the fabrics as they have been here for a while and I just love how they feel. The plan is to make a crib quilt version of ZigZagNoli. But other time sensitive projects took precedence. But, next week I go away for a few days to a retreat and this project is on my quilt retreat TO DO list!!!

I can’t wait!

What projects are you up to right now?

This week on Monday I was able to visit with the Columbine Quilt Guild in Arvada, CO. I showed off some of my quilts and patterns doing a trunk show and lecture and had a chance to chat with some of the members. they are a really nice group of quilters! In a couple of weeks, I will be able to visit with another guild in Parker CO. I love chatting with quilters! 

Sneak Peek- new pattern Portland Parks using the line Literary from Windham Fabrics! Love the quilting!

 

OK- time for me to get back to work and finish up a few of these new projects so I can start on my Zig ZagNoli quilt.
