Working!!!!!!!!!! over the past 3 weeks I have been in Big Bear Lake at Patchworks Quilt Shop.  A BIG THANK YOU to Karen and Sally for inviting me for a trunk show and workshop.  I had a ball and to the ladies of their guild THANK YOU!!!!!!  I also attend a Meet the Teacher event in Carson.  Had a lot of fun, met a lot of people and a lot of old friends dropped by that I have met from vending at quilt shows. AND......

I have been sewing and designing new are some pics of one that I just finished.....DRUM ROLL......

Partial corner blocks

Corner blocks completed

Full Quilt

I know its a departure from the civil war quilts I have designed...You should know I have so much I want to touch on, I can't keep it inside.  The picture of course does not do it justice.  The fabrics I used are not really bright, but subdued.....this will be released in a book form.  I had to break down the quilt into sections so that it would not be overwhelming.  The quilt main body uses only one block, then of course the border blocks and the corner border blocks.  It was a step out of my comfort zone and I knew it was time for me to challenge myself.  I had a ball.  Only took me about 5-7 days to make the quilt.  I will be adding some embroidery to know I have too........this book should be available within the next couple of weeks.  It will be available on my etsy site ( and website....
I received the pictures for my book....YAYAYAYAYAYYAY!!!!!!!!!!
The pictures were taken on an 1800s farm.  As soon as I get permission, I will show you some pictures. back to work...I have a Christmas quilt I am working on....I should have the sample ready next week...I will post pics......
Until then......keep stitchin'
