So if you want to learn a some great paper piecing tips, and make a super cute wall organizer to boot, go to the QuiltCon site and sign up!
Keep in mind, advanced registration ends on Feb 7 and no MQG discounts will be given if you sign up at the event.
The winner of the Lotta Follie fq set from FabricCadabra is Amy Cavanagh! Amy I've tried emailing you and it wouldn't go through. Please contact me by Wednesday or I'll sadly have to choose a new winner.
I can't believe it. My book is finally out and I had my first book signing. I am still waffling between periods of disbelief and pure excitement. I mean, I never would have thought even 5 years ago that I would have authored a book.
It was an honor for me, having my first signing at favorite fabric shop here in Fort Collins, Mama Said Sew/Jukebox Quilts. The Fort Collins MQG showed up in full force (including my friend Maggie from the Front Range MQG, thanks Maggie for the awesome surprise! and L-man even made an appearance!), and they were all so encouraging and genuinely excited for me. I am so grateful to have this quilting community!

Interweave did an amazing job capturing my style from the fonts they used to the page layout. I am so blessed to work with them!
Which brings me to my next topic, a paper piecing interview I'm doing over at Crafty Planner.

As I was scouting out P&B's website, I came across the line Fresh Pick, aren't they awesome?? The peas are adorable, and I love the monochromatic veggies and tomatos!
And I'm really liking the colors in the Zenith line!
How about this pigeon stoop print from the Port City line? So cool! I've used it as a bag lining here.
