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!

A Quilter’s Affair is coming, plan ahead!




Bring on summertime and the fun quilter’s retreats we’ll be enjoying! A Quilter’s Affair in Sisters, Oregon is just about heaven on earth for me and about 40,000+ of my quilting friends! This year I have the great honor of teaching these three quilts, and I couldn’t be looking forward to it any more!
Hot Ziggidy! is a fast and fun quilt, large blocks that show off your large scale prints. The pattern is a downloadable from Craftsy that you will notice on the left sidebar.
Shooting Stars is a Hunter’s Star variation where the colors drift in diagonal rows across the quilt, and it has my signature pieced border that blends so well, and is easy to add. It’s from my book Perfect Fit Pieced Borders, which you might already have, and if not you can pick it up from the Stitchin’ Post, or get it from my shop page.
Spinal Cord is an intriguing block, you’ll be surprised that it goes together as a tumbler design rather than a rectangle. This one too, has my signature pieced border which makes it very special. It’s also from Perfect Fit Pieced Borders.
There’s plenty of time to sign up for classes, so don’t hesitate. Look through the on-line catalog and choose your favorites! I’ll see you there!
