I'm shocked how long it has been since posting! So much to do, all the time but social media has become a very important aspect of designing fabrics, quilts, and publishing. So I need to make you a priority! I post faster and definitely more often on Instagram and Facebook. Instagram is my favorite of the two.
So here is my little corner in the Moda Designer Studio! I had so much fun designing and making these quilts for this Market. The fabric range simply kept begging for more quilts to be made! I finally settled on 5 patterns, but have 8 quilts total.
This sampler is the 6 month version of the 12 month Block of the Month program designed by my friend Julie Hale of Bits 'n Pieces in Michigan. She did an awesome job with my fabric line. The line is called Rachel Remembered. More about Rachel in a minute.
Besides the debut of a new line of fabric, I have a wonderful new book with Martingale, Treasury of Quilts, based on quilts from my block exchange group, the 19th Century Patchwork Divas. I'm thrilled to show you some quilts from the book, even though the photographer is not the best, ME! It was my pleasure to co author the book with my friend and fellow Diva so founder Carol Staehle. Below, the tree quilt is on the cover and belongs to Deb Otto. On the right is my quilt, Stacked Baskets.
Another tree quilt, by Stacey Barrington
On the left Sunburst by Annette Plog and on the right by May Freeman is the the album exchange, enhanced by darling baskets on 3 sides. (wish I had thought of that!)
Both of these are Carol's quilts.
Sorry I didn't get more photos! where did the time go???
My project in Mini Marvels.
Dinner with friends is always a Market treat. Top row: Margo, Peg, Annette. Seated: Me and Julia.
I only took one food photo. The most wonderful simple cucumber and tomato salad EVER from Southern Goods. Don't know if you can see, but the pale yellow base for the salad is pureed deviled eggs! OMG! genious!!!! also pickled onion, fresh dill and pepitas. I'm swooning just thinking about it.
Here is what I missed while away...Madison's last soccer game. Here she is with my son, her Uncle Matt, who happens to be in charge of the league. I showed this photo to everyone I could find....It made me so happy. Thanks Rachel for sending it and the Halloween photos. Yes, I missed Halloween. [insert sad face here]
Cutest witch ever in a pumpkin patch!
But Goldilocks for Halloween. An uncooperative bear, AKA Murphy is beside her.
Long week plus away, but now home and back to work! Be watching, things are happening and I'll be posting. Thanks as always for following me.
~Until next time,
