Hello Friends, I hope you have been well! I am finally back in the land of living… sort of! During my time away, autumn happened! The following Autumn Comfort runner is featured in my upcoming Creative Quilts & Projects book.
I did manage to finish piecing my 30 blocks. Here you see all the blocks all stacked up… you have seen my Iron Man quilt. This current quilt sure feels like an Iron Man II quilt!!! However, my husband really likes this current quilt – thus a masculine quilt alert! Stay tuned for details.
I also finalized my travel arrangements to Fall Market next month! I will be in Houston from Oct 22 to Oct 25! Please email me if you want to meet up! I will have a few events during my time there – details to come. I will also be helping out at Sample Spree. I have never been to Sample Spree in my past Market trips… so I am eager to see how craziness unfolds in real life at Sample Spree! I have heard it’s a bit crazy, and that might even be an understatement!
And in the midst of the frenzy, this (THIS!) came in the mail — my Aurifil Subtle Strings thread pack!!! I am making a quilt with the threads in my thread box!! These thread boxes will be available after Fall Market in November. I am quilting a quilt with these threads. I will be able to share more about the quilt after Market!! I am VERY excited about this thread box… and will be posting more about it and the threads in the future. Miss Baby saw the box and asked, “Mom, why is your picture on the box?”
And of course, where would I be without my friends being my “eyes” out there looking for interesting things/links to send me? Mary emailed me a few days ago to tell me my Yuki quilt design is kitted and sold by Cotton Club. You can click here to purchase the quilt kits.
Before I forget, let’s take care of the ladies who will be receiving some Windham Chambray Rose fabrics from my post here. I decided to share the love, and managed to make 2 little fabric piles from my magazine project leftovers. So, the two ladies to be receiving the fabrics are: Sandy A in St. Louis, and Carol Hendrick. Ladies, I have emailed you privately asking for your mailing address. If you don’t receive the email, would you please email me your mailing address so that I can get the fabrics sent out to you in my next mail run?
So I get home from Fall Market, and will only have time to catch up with laundry and a little of housework before I leave again. I am teaching at Annie’s Craft Festival at Fort Wayne in Indiana on Oct 30-Nov 1. Will I see you there? You may click here to sign up for classes with me.
I think that’s all for now, Dear Friends. Happy Fall to my northern Hemisphere friends, and Happy Monday and Happy Week to ALL my friends!
p.s. The above pictures show some of the fall projects I have worked on in the past.
