I hope you have some free time Monday June 22 at 4:00 P.M. EST to listen in, because I am going to be a guest on American Patchwork and Quilting with Pat Sloan! I’ll be talking about my life as a quilter, and talk a little bit about the book and other stuff, too. I am nervous and excited all at once. I’ve been listening to Pat’s podcasts for a long time!
And now, my other news. A couple of weeks ago, I sent one of my quilts out to the NQA show. This quilt, “Eggs and Darts”, is one of the ones in my book Wanderlust Quilts, and I love it. One of my goals is always to be a little better than I was on the quilt before, and I had heard that the judges there at NQA were thoughtful and serious and I wanted some comments about things I could do better. Imagine my surprise when I saw this on Christa Watson’s Instagram feed:
That ribbon was for First in the Modern category! I almost passed out. I had designed and quilted this, and my dear friend Sue Bishop helped me out with the construction because the book was on such a tight deadline. I couldn’t have gotten all my projects finished in time without her. What a week! Hope yours is full of quilt goodness!
Just in: my book received its first review at Right Sides Together! I am so thrilled she got what I was trying to do. I’d love it if you checked it out
