It’s been a while since my last post as I’ve been a busy bee preparing for Quilt Market 2016 in Salt Lake City, which happens to be NEXT WEEK! Commence panic mode…Ahhhhhh….ahhhhhhh! Please find time to stop by my booth at Lecien Fabrics & introduce yourself! It would make me the happiest. Also, I’ll give you a gift for stopping by 😉 If you’re at market on Thursday, May 19th, I will have a school house presentation at 1:55 PM room 253A.
Before my giveaway (at the end of this post), i will bombard you with a bunch of pretty photos of some preparations leading up to quilt market. =)
First of all, that corset (above)! I will dedicate a whole blog post to that, but for now I had to share a picture. I just couldn’t keep it to myself! It was made locally by my talented friend Hilary who is the owner of Period Corsets. This is a custom, casual-style corset that can be worn with jeans. and believe it or not, it’s quite comfortable! My inner Wonder Woman came out when I tried it on.
Super-duper cute business cards! I ordered these from www.moo.com. I had fun choosing various card backings using my prints.
I’ve started another quilt as you go project, which I’m almost done with. I will share more once it’s finished. Also, I’m introducing a new QAYG technique which will be in book #2.
The color schemes for this quilt started off as blues and yellows , but then I decided to warm it up with reds and dusty pinks.
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day! These cute 2.5″ square mini charm packs arrived in my mailbox last Sunday, along with a jelly roll (aka sushi roll), fat quarters and charm packs. I just might be handing these out at my booth at quilt market! 😉 It was a pleasant surprise on Mother’s day. Okay honestly, I was squealing out of excitement from the moment I saw the box on my doorstep. Paige was looking at me with her head cocked to one side wondering what was wrong with me.
This mini quilt will also have it’s own blog post dedicated to it (as a free pattern will be available – woohoo!), but again, had to share a glimpse. This one was made by my talented friend Tiffany Behmer.
Here’s the back of the quilt, quilted by my friend Monica Skov of It’s Just Sewing.
Sharing another glimpse…this time of a beautiful tea towel! This is one out of a set of four. Made once again by the amazing Tiffany! 🙂 I am so thankful for her.
Thanks for hanging out until the end =) Now for my giveaway!

That corset is amazing! And your fabric line is so lovely. As I looked at it, it reminded me of my wedding colors 30+ years ago. I’ve saved my handmade ring bearers pillow; and I plan to use it, my veil, and my wedding gown (yes, I’m going to cut it), along with wedding photos printed on fabric to make a wedding quilt. I think “High Tea” might just fit right in with my design I have in mind. If not, I’ll finally make ME a lil quilt. Thank you for sharing your creativity and enjoy that corset!

A quilt with this is a must do!
Strawberries, tea, pretty, soft colors! I must make a quilt and matching pillow cases for my bed whether I win or not. Thank you for this beautiful design!
