Sharing Quilt Market: a Giveaway

  I've been away recently attending Quilt Market in Salt Lake City. Quilt Market is a twice-yearly gathering of wholesale venders to showcase their products and sell to the owners of quilt shops and such. This year, I decided to go and try to give my patterns and cards out to shop owners to introduce myself and patterns, and to (hopefully!) increase my wholesale sales. I also met with some magazine editors I am hoping to do some projects with. All in all, the event is super big, super exciting, and a bit exhausting. I can only imagine how it must...

Happy Fall Fabric and Pattern Giveaway!

Happy November! Just popping in quickly to say thank you for all the sweet comments on my new quilt pattern, Sparkle, and also on my little Bikini quilt in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. I have not been organized enough lately to answer individual comments, but I do read and appreciate each one. I can't believe my Bikini quilt was nominated for viewers' choice in the quilt festival over at Amy's Creative Side. I've never really had success with my quilts in competitions and stuff, so that is pretty flattering... You can vote this week for you favorites (including viewers' choice),...

Giveaway! fabric and quilt pattern

Things are crazy busy in my world right now, so let's do something just for fun: a giveaway! I have six fat eights (9" x 21") of prints by Joel Dewberry plus a copy of my Dutch Windmill pattern.  These are prints from the collection that I used a great deal in my Eclipse quilt. I love the retro-style florals and geometrics in my favorite complimentary combo: blue and orange. Dutch Windmill is a quick-make quilt, with instructions for three sizes. It is a great design for showing off your favorite prints. In addition to the quilt on the pattern cover, I...
