What's up?

Hello Friends! Long time no talk!
I attempted to take a "easy" spring as I had a lot happening personally. 
Like.... A big special project, that you will hear about soon, New Quilts, 

and, this peanut....Had a big Birthday, and...

Can you believe it?  She went and grew up on me...

So, I have stayed pretty close to home, teaching and doing retreats here in NYC, 
besides getting off to the Iowa Quilt Museum for my exhibit opening.

So now that school is wrapped up with a neat and tidy bow, 
She started working for me for the summer, before heading off to RPI in August.  (!!)

Which means, I am packing up for my summer Work Road Trip!
This year I (we) am heading to Des Moines for a week of classes, then a quick hop over to Winterset Iowa, to teach at Piece Works Quilt Shop, and then to give my Lecture on Creativity & Play
at the Iowa Quilt Musem among my quilts!
Please come!

Friday, June 29 at 5:30 PM - 8 PM CDT
Iowa Quilt Museum

I hope to see you there!
More to come!


If you haven't popped over the website lately, 
we have many new patterns, and bundles!
(Update your solid stash with our large affordable bundles!!)

Three Generations! 

more later! I gotta pack!

I've made it to Winterset, Iowa for the opening event of my exhibit

Evening Event 5-8pm Sat. April 21st! TONIGHT!
Goosebumps? Check!

It's been amazing to look back to works I did long ago, and where I am now...
I included work from 1983, 1992, 2000, and up through til now.
I love seeing how something I was doing then is still appearing in my work now...
Somethings can change, but a real basic theme, of looking , improvisation and tradition keeps ringing through.
I do hope you will get to see the exhibit, and the Museum!

Thanks Marianne Fons for taking me around town, and asking me to do this! And for all the folks involved with the Iowa Quilts Museum for giving me this opportunity. Thank you so much!

Hello my Quilty friends!  I have news!  I am honored to have an exhibit opening at the Iowa Quilt Museum, April 17th, showcasing works of my 35 years of being a Quiltmaker!
You shrug at the 35 years, But Yes, With a Birthday just days away, I can confirm.  LOL

In other news!
My website has been given a fresh new look! 
You can also follow my Instagram account over there if you are not on Instagram! (scroll to the bottom) 
Hop on over and see all the goodness!
We have some really fun new items coming soon, So sty tuned!
Below is one of my newest templates, called Pavement Puzzle!

 I have been playing with a two color option, But keep playing it up by cutting other fabrics! I have a hard time just making a quilt two colors! Even though I love the look, the urge to throw something else into the mix is just so tempting!  See below?

Ultimately, I went with the Rainbow collection bundle, Available in the shop. (and my NYC store!)   I do love how a pattern can change so easily into something really exciting, just by posing in some fun color choices!

I hope to see you in Iowa! Or any other of the events I will be at this month!
I will be teaching one class, and Again,(my second year)  hosting the 
Paducah Spring Awards ceremony which will be shown live, online!

Oh Boy!

 So, I'm at home this week! I am not at QuiltCon this year!  ...And look what happens? 
First Place for Modern Traditionalism on my Color Study H1 Quilt!
WHAT!  What a treat to find out that it has some ribbon bling next to it!

A BIG thank you to the Judges for choosing my quilt! It is part of a new series I am working on. I have been exploring color and how it can change depending what it's sitting next too.

And yes, this is the Technique from my Newest Book, Modern Quilt Magic.
Do you have your signed copy?  ;-)

And, Shelly from Prairiemoon Quilts, quilted it for me. Ribbon candy and straight lines, simple, but beautifully done!
As Shelly always does! I pretty much let Shelly quilt everything for me these days.
I have two long arm machines, but I just don't have time to do what I want with them!
one needs to be home more to quilt, which is why I am hone now.
I head next week to teach a five day class at  next week... and I LOVE teaching there, and having 5 days with my students...  

Shelly and I make a good team... Thanks Shelly!

I have a new Template set available at the store!

Have a peek!
