Yes, I know my blogging efforts are pathetic. Sorry.

A quick note that there are still spaces in a five day workshop I'm doing with Quilting Adventures in Texas next month. There is still time for you to sign up.

The workshop is officially to design my kind of quilts, but if you just want to hang out and make a quilt without having to design, that's fine too, I'm bringing a bunch of patterns.

Check it out here

I promise to start updating my blog on a regular basis! (yeah, I know I say that all the time...)

Here's a picture of a new quilt in the meantime:

This quilt is named "Spirals" (yes, I know that's very original). I used the Accuquilt Go! to cut most of the shapes. I designed a die for them, I used that for some of the parts, and then used other dies they have for other parts, and then I used my computer to design some of the OTHER parts.

I do have a pattern for this, and it's available in my classroom when I teach. So far, I'm not selling this separately, although I might do that in the future. You don't have to use any dies to make the quilt, all the shapes needed are included in my pattern and they can be traced and cut out by hand.

In the meantime, this quilt is going to go to the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival, with the Mancuso Brothers. I've taught there the last two years, and judged, so I didn't enter a quilt in the show. This year, I'm teaching for them in Denver (DNQF) and in Pennsylvania (PNQE), so I submitted this quilt to the show.

I hope you are having a lovely winter. Or summer if you are in the Southern Hemisphere.
