Hello Friends, I hope your week got off a lovely start! I am still chugging along at my end tending to the different irons in the fire! First off, the second round of flowering has begun on my rose bushes. Due to the heat, the flowers aren’t as pink as in the early spring. And they don’t last as long either.
I actually tracked the “life” of a rose on my Instagram stories a couple of weeks ago, trying to see how long it took for a bud to mature into a flower. With the growing conditions in my reason, I say it’s about 14-18 days. I never thought it would be that long.
Every week I receive emails from quilters asking where they can purchase stand-alone patterns for kits they see in catalogs like Keepsake Quilting. Most of the time these patterns are not available as stand-alone for sale patterns because they are exclusive collaborations among all the parties involved in offering a design as kits . The only way to get the pattern is to purchase the kits. I have also learned that Keepsake Quilting almost never re-kit a project after their kits sell out.
So if you like a kit you see, it’s probably best to purchase it while it is still available. Click HERE to check out the kits that I have designed for Keepsake Quilting.
I thought I would share with you the newest kits available that I had designed with the Walnut Creek fabrics by Windham Fabrics.
The first one is Homestead. Click HERE to purchase the kit. Remember the house blocks I had shared with you a few weeks ago? The design is offered as quilt kits using the Walnut Creek fabrics.
The second one is Plum Creek. Click HERE to purchase the kit.
Receiving frequent requests for my stand-alone patterns is a big determing factor for the launch of my own pattern line in December 2019. I want to thank those of you who have purchased the patterns. I am appreciative of your support. Please know that my editors and myself work really hard to make each of these pattern happen!
Click HERE to see the current offerings. More will be added within the few weeks.
All my patterns are non-fabric specific, and oftentimes precuts friendly. And chances are I am sewing my quilts right along with you!
What if you really like the version(s) of my quilts I have shown in my fabric choices? Email me, and I am more than happy to share with you names of fabric lines, and pertinent details.
Please also let your quilt shops know that copies of paper pattern are offered exclusively to them. They just need to email me for details.
This is one I am working on. It is actually a log cabin quilt. In case you missed it, I had blogged about it here. Pattern is available here. And here is my latest progress picture. A quarter of the blocks are made!
Meanwhile, I am working on these blocks…. details coming soon!
That’s all for now, Friends. I am burning midnight oil trying to get a huge quilt completed…. This quilt has more than 850 HST units! I am crazy, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
Take care, and may the bluebird of happiness fly up your nose!
Till next time!
