Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: News & Catching Up!

Hi friends! I love seeing all the quilts you have entered in the Festival! If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time!  Visit this post and select a category your quilt falls into, and link up.  Also, there have been lots of nominations, but there’s always room for more – select a favorite from all the categories to nominate for Viewer’s Choice.  I will sort through all the nominations over the weekend, and then we vote for our top three favorites!

Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival -

I had a great Market experience with a full schoolhouse, and four signings giving me a chance to chat with a number of shop owners and fans.  I’m still in recovery and catch up mode around the house, but today I’m planning to ignore the laundry and enjoy my birthday! I think I will pull out my Dancing Stars blocks and keep working on them :)

To celebrate with you, I have put all my books on sale in the bookshop, for today only! 25% off the publication prices, and no code needed.

Awaiting my return from Market was this quilt, which is in the July/August edition of Quiltmaker, and on newsstands soon!  Aptly named, Wildflower Fields, and made with PB&J fabrics by Basic Grey for Moda.


And the contract for my next book was waiting for me too! Working with Martingale has opened many doors for me and I love the writing process! The manuscript is due in early January, so I’m planning to enjoy the summer months with my family, and make all the necessary plans to begin sewing while the kiddos are in school next fall.


That was a lot to catch up on!  I have some Market loot pictures to take, and I’ll share more then.

I hope you are having a great day, and if you haven’t yet – enter a quilt!

    Happy Birthday Amy. I am celebrating your birthday by taking the last of the paper off the back of my dancing stars quilt. It is looking great. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

    I can’t link up? It’s the 24th and should still be active?

    So sad that I appear to have missed the chance to add a link :(. There is no “Add your link” box appearing in any of the categories. I thought today, the 24th, I could still add. The quilts are all lovely though.
