Happy Monday, and what to expect…

Hello Friends, I hope you had a great weekend.  My life has gone by like a blurry whirlwind of late!  I am leaving for Market in four days, and I still a little bit to get done before I can leave… thus the whirlwind!  I am going to give you a few heads up’s on things upcoming!

TOMORROW – my turn on Windham’s First Blush BLOG HOP and GIVEAWAY!  Check back on my blog tomorrow sometime in the early afternoon for the post.  It all depends on when I get my pictures taken of my project. I live dangerously, I know…. not by choice, mind you.  I used to have all my clothes and shoes laid out for an entire week.  Now, I kind of just jump into what’s available! :o)


For now, all I can show you is the “dress-fitting” shot of Softie the Squirrel.


FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2016 at Houston Fall Quilt Market: Schoolhouse

I will be presenting my next book at Schoolhouse (Room 352A from 2:50-3:05pm) on…. on…. yes, domestic machine quilting!  Many of you have written to ask about having my Thread Talk posts compiled into a book, and yes, it’s finally in the process of happening.  I cannot be more excited about it.  So, if you are going to be at Market, or know someone who will be, and want to hear my humble 2 cents as a happenstance quilter.  You know where to find me! The following project is one of the projects I will be showing…. love this one!


SATURDAY (October 29, 2016) – MONDAY (October 31, 2016) at Houston Fall Market: Extension of Me… I actually don’t know what designs of mine that have been made into display samples.  But do check out the booths: RJR Fabrics, Hoffman Fabrics, Windham Fabrics and Quilting Treasures.

I know for sure you will see my quilty shenanigans at the booths Quilting Treasures and Aurifil using the following fabrics and threads.  These Bleecker Street fabrics are amazing, and you have to check out the quilts I have designed with them at Quilting Treasures booth (#2422).  These fabrics ship in November 2016.


See those embroidery floss?  I am happy to announce to you the release of Marmalade Meadows, an embroidery floss I curated for Aurifil.  These same floss are also supporting floss for Quilting Treasures’ Bleecker Street fabrics. Marmalade Meadows will ship in December 2016, and I will be sharing supporting projects starting shipping time.


You will want to check out Marmalade’s Merriment, stitched with Marmalade’s Meadows embroidery floss, at Aurifil’s booth (#1924).


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2016 (4-5pm) and SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2016 (9:30-10:30am) at Houston Fall Market: LIVE MACHINE QUILTING DEMO at Landauer Publishing’s Booth (#646). At least that’s the plan, and I will do my best…. or you will get to see my flop at the machine!  I will also have my Thread Journey quilt for your close-up inspection.  Come by, and I will be happy to answer any questions you might have!



That’s it for now, Friends.  I going to fly for now… see you back here sometime tomorrow!  Have a great week!
