While still pretty excited about Blue and White, which will be shipping in 1 month, I have been busy with secret sewing.
I will be able to show you our new collection very soon.  It's happy and cheerful and just what everyone needs right now.

Since most of my secret sewing is finished, we now are getting everything ready for this adventure.  If you plan to be in Nantes and want to take some classes with Polly or I you can sign up here

I received a nice note recently that the Olde Kent Quilters Guild from Chestertown Maryland has a raffle quilt made using our Coastal Lily pattern.  
The raffle supports  Deborah's Angels charity quilting program, which has donated more than 2400 quilts to sick and in-crisis children since 2004.  Brava Ole Kent, well done!

Blue and White Book - Pre-sale - With SUPRISE!!!

The time is getting closer! Just a few short weeks away from this book coming out.  We are pretty excited here and we hope to get you a bit excited too.

I have posted the book in our Etsy store for Pre-sale.  Why do you ask would you want to buy it a few weeks before it's published?? Here's why..... every pre-sale order of this book will be entered into a raffle to win a blue and white quilt made by me or a blue and white rug made by Polly.  That's why.... Here is the link to the pre-sale.  This book will also be autographed.

Polly is at the Miromar Design Center today at the Ralph Lauren Home Center with some of her rugs.

This is the quilt you could win - the Antique Duvet quilt...

And this is the rug...

Oregon, Airports, and Quilt Planning


Polly and I were on the Oregon coast last week for a little relaxation and some intensive sewing.
A great time was had by all (we stitched with some Moda colleagues) and we lucked out on the January weather.  We actually had a few clear days of watching the surf.  Just don't ask about the flights home.  Can you say "Delta Computer Outage"?
I worked on a couple of projects. I am sliding into home on the Star A Day quilt.  I am on my last block and I need to only make about 20 more stars.  

This wasn't my project - it was Jennifer's.  We applaud her choice of fabric!

These blocks were on my design wall for a few days and I quickly stitched them into a top.  This is a homage (brazen copy) of an antique Amish quilt from 140 years ago.  I used Bella solids, 2 Grunges, and 1 cross weave to "texture up" the traditional Amish look.  Why did I make it? Just because.  I had a picture of the original on my bulletin board for years.  It was time to seal the deal.  I sent it off yesterday to Kari to baste.  I will hand quilt this one - at my leisure.  

I've had a few good productive days getting ready for new fabric to land on my doorstop (new quilts to make!!) and planning for our trip to France in April.

We're wishing you some happy, productive days in this short, yet sun challenged month.  To help you achieve that - we have a sale in our Etsy shop until this weekend (February 6th) for 30% off.  Just use the coupon code WINTER to get your discount.
