March is usually a crazy time of year, in my world (and not due to basketball). I am hoping it is not the same this year. It’s been a month since I blogged last….wow where did time go. I have been super busy with various projects…
1. Sunday Best; 2. Rails; 3. Negative Crosswalks
QuiltCon 2017 happened last week. Three of my quilts were accepted, which was so great to see in the show. Sunday Best (first quilt on the left) was also in the QuiltCon Magazine and was the feature quilt for the section introduction of “Quilts of the Show”. I was thrilled.
I also organized a showcase for Quilt Design a Day that had some amazing quilts from amazing people.
The whole weekend was so amazing, as I got to meet old friends and make new friends and got to try hand quilting for the first time. Overall, a fantastic and memorable weekend.
I published my second article for the MQG (you need to be a member to view the link) on Improvisation: Shapes and Lines.
Also, the other big news item, is….I am self-publishing my own book (with help from a great technical editor and graphic designer). The book will be on the process of Quilt Designing. I hope to have it for sale late Q1/ early Q2 2018. I am so excited and can’t wait to share more.
I hope to be blogging a little more this month (shouldn’t be hard to improve from 0 posts in February ;-)).
It was so lovely to get to chat and “work” with you at registration at QuiltCon. You have so many exciting things going on! Self publishing really seems like a brilliant way to go.
It was really great seeing you again too. I am excited about self-publishing and the friends I have helping me out. It should be fun!!
