It’s not too late! Quilts and More Still Available!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There’s still time to pick up your copy of Quilts and More, Summer 2018.  My quilt, Block Party is on the cover, and it is full of fun projects, large and small.  I plan to do some embroidery this summer inspired by this magazine!

Check out your local bookstore, I know Barnes and Noble has it, as well as quilt shops, craft stores, grocery stores, and if you’re in the PNW check good old BiMart!

One thing I love about this magazine is the alternate color-way version that is included, and for my quilt pattern, Joanna Burgarino, Editor, made a miniature wall hanging/table topper!  Also, in the pull-out there are COLORING diagrams for each quilt included.  It gives you so much confidence when you are choosing fabrics to know how the colors work together as a whole!

So, get your copy, it’s not too late, Quilts and More, Summer 2018 will be on display until July 17th!

Interview at the Bee Hive!

Anna & Sheila in the Bee Hive!

I want to share a video with you today from Anna of “Quilt Roadies on You Tube” fame, you may also know her blog “Woolie Mammoth“.  We talked together a couple weeks ago after a class I taught at the Stitchin Post in Sisters, Oregon.  Anna was in the class and invited me to her home studio, The Bee Hive for a visit.  Well, as you can imagine, when two quilters get together we have SO MUCH to talk about, and now you get to hear some of it too!

Click through HERE to see the video!  We actually didn’t talk all that much about quilting! It features my currently most popular classes–I think you’ll enjoy it, and you will see how much fun we had together!

Upcycle/Recycle!

Well, it’s been rainy and windy for the last few days here in the Pacific Northwest! I thought I needed a pick-me-up, so I’m sharing a project that was featured in an article in the Fall/Winter issue of Make It Yourself.

These flower pot cover-ups are so cheerful and fun!  I especially love having something to set my Christmas poinsettia into that will fit with the rest of my Holiday decor, and what better use is there for a worn out Christmas sweater!!  Find out how to make them, and lots of other projects in the magazine, it’s available now at newstands.  The article has several designs from  Lisa of Towerhouse Quilts too, BONUS!

Check out Make It Yourself on facebook, they always have creative ideas to share!
