Come and Visit me on SATURDAY!
This Saturday, February 21, from 10 AM until 1 PM, I’ll be signing magazines, laughing, creating chaos and giving sneak previews of my upcoming fabric lines, prizes and autographs (of the banned issue) and my new krakow fabrics at
Emma’s Quilt Cupboard 12 Main Street Franklin, Massachusetts Telephone 508.520.0234
Emma’s won the califon display contest and I’m driving up to thank them (they also won the complete line of my krakow fabrics). Here are a couple of pics from their winning display.
So please stop to say ‘hi’ this weekend for a few laughs, hugs, stash shopping and fun! xoxom
I’m really happy to be in the new issue of McCall’s Quilting
First, two table runners pieced for me by Elaine, owner of The Quilter’s Nook Studio, in White Oak, PA, using my califon fabric line. The Quilter’s Nook has kits available for these two table running projects so take a look. You can call Elaine at 412-751-1356
Then designer Penny Sturges of Quiltsillustrated has a sweet bag design using the B&W califon (but I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the McCall’s included a ton of bags recreating Penny’s design using a lot of different fabrics and hot designer combos).
You know, chickens, I was in blogging hell and didn’t have the change to show you the cover quilt for the latest Quiltmaker, and a quilt they are featuring using the califon fabrics. Take a look. It’s a fabulous quilt in person! Kindred Quilts is offering this quilt as a kit. You can call Kindred at 908-730-8896
I was working on a segment for Quilter’s Home at a local bead shop and saw these terrific glass buttons. My buddy Toby (owner of Kindred Quilts) told me that there is a glass making class at this shop that teaches how to make these glass beads. So Jeff, Toby, and I signed up! Here’s an example of what they look like.
So, guess what? Guess what showed up at the bead shop? The owner, Linda, had a bag made from my Katmandu fabric! The button on it is fused glass — the class we’re going to take. Small world!
I am so honored that designer Tricia Cribbs added a califon fabric quilt in her new latest book, Turning Twenty Simply Sashed. Now you know how I love a Turning Twenty, this is like icing on the cake for daddy!
The califon quilt is on the upper left of the book jacket. I love the quilt on the lower right!
Here’s the califon quilt in greater detail
There are a lot of cute projects and some yummy *hic* cocktail recipes in here! Ahhh, a woman after my own heart! But be careful. Too many of these ‘magic’ drinkables and you might end up like that freakozoid Octo-mom!
If you’e not a big fabric buyer (you like FQs and smaller), you’ll love Loose Change by Claudia Plett and Le Ann Weaver. I think it’s a very nicely done book, and while the quilts aren’t anything out of the ordinary (what do you expect from tiny pieces of fabric?), they are worth a look and are inspiring!
And, I wasn’t going to say anything, but what the hell….
We know who you are and your little cats, too!
(more on that later)
