Upcoming Adventures

While we hope you are cozied up stitching on something - maybe you want to plan a trip when the weather turns to spring (at least in our hemisphere).

Polly and I are thrilled to be going back to Nantes France for the Pour l'Amour du Fil Show put on by Quiltmania Magazine.  We will teach a couple of classes, sign books (yeah!) and meet and talk with all who attend.  We LOVE this show and you will too.  The ink will barely be dry on these books when we are in Nantes.  If you can't make it to the show - know we will be putting up pre-sales of the book in late February or early March in our Etsy shop.

What else has been going on?....... I have had my nose to the grindstone getting my "chores" done.  Tax papers are in order, Inventory has been taken, quilts have been sketched, and the quilting on the red and green Irish Chain is almost done.  I'll show the finished, bound, and washed quilt to you next week.

There is something pretty exciting about having all your chores done and being able to make something new.

Irish Chain Variation

The Irish Chain Variation is basted and in my hoop.  The pattern is also finished and in our Etsy Shop

The directions let you make a 2 color version (blue and white) or a 3 color version (red, green, and white).  If you like strip piecing....... this is for you!

Now that I have this pattern finished and offering it to you, that means I get to tackle the next thing on my list.  That would be designing another quilt - and taxes.  Wish me luck.  See you in a week or two.
