I wanted to share a few quilty things I’ve been up to this Fall. 🙂 I went antiquing last weekend and came across the perfect, vintage wooden frame for my La Conner mini quilt! This quilt was made by Alli of Woodberry Way using La Conner fabrics. You can find the pattern called Sweet Marie from Alli’s shop, right HERE. I have plans to hang this in my dining room.
Now for some shop news for my sad and neglected shop…lol. I will be posting some La Conner bundles and scissors on my blog shop shortly, including signed copies of both of my books. I just need to get the shipping squared away.
La Conner scissors – they match the fabric! <3
We’ve been having a lovely Autumn here in Seattle and every nice weekend it’s been a corn mazin’, cider drinkin’, pumpkin patchin’ kinda day. I live for days like this!
When I was treasure hunting last weekend I also brought home this vintage quilt (shown behind those lovely dahlias, below). I saw this quilt about a month ago and contemplated getting it. At the time I decided against it, but it always stayed close to my heart. When I saw it was still available, I knew it was meant to be!
Some other fun news…! On Monday at 1:00 pm Pacific (4:00 pm Eastern, 3:00 pm Central, 2:00 pm Mountain) I will be interviewed on the American Patchwork and Quilting podcast hosted by Pat Sloan, the voice of quilting! 🙂
Update: Please visit the website link below to listen to my interview, episode #357:
I will be talking about my latest book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Vintage, as well as my fabric.
Speaking of my book (which you can read more about here), I thought this would be a good opportunity for a book giveaway!
Update: This giveaway has ended and winners notified. Thank you!
I will be giving away 3 copies of my book. To enter, click HERE.
I will contact the 3 winners on Nov. 12th. Good luck!
Some other fun stuff…a couple weeks ago I hosted a QAYG workshop for the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild! I truly had so much fun and had a wonderful bunch of people in my class. I loved meeting each and every one of them!
Everyone left with a FINISHED quilt as you go pin cushion, a pair of scissors and pins! 🙂
Didn’t their cushions turn out great?!
Anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you all have a wonderful November ahead!
No better way to end this post than a corgi on a quilt. 😉 Hello from Paige!
I love listening to Pat’s interviews while I’m sewing. Looking forward to next Monday!
Book looks beautiful 🙂
What a fun post! I love Fall too. And vintage anything mainly quilts and linens.
LOVE Your books, Sooooo much fun
THANK YOU for a Beautiful Book Giveaway! Love it!

Sometimes Jera I would so love to be able to live in the US. Then I could come to a class of yours and gain a bit of confidence with QAYG. Oh to be able to make such gorgeous things. I have been spoilt by a friend from the US who sent me a charm pack and some scissors from your La Conner range, I just have to think of what to do with them. Oh now I see your book competition is only open to people in the US too, bother !! Anyway thanks for being an inspiration.
P.s The photo pf ypu and your boys in the corn is priceless, so lovely.
I too, was SO disappointed that the book giveaway is only open to the US …..can I ask why?
This book is going to be as great as the last one! Looks wonderful.
Can’t wait for the new book , loved the first one .
Your book looks amazing. Would love to stsrt those projects
Need to add this book to my collection. Just doing quilt as you go projects.
Ahhhhh….already purchased your second book (I have the first one too) so I’ll have to let someone else win lol. I had it on my Christmas wishlist, but couldn’t wait until then lol. Can’t wait to make something from it. I’ve only made some pillows from the first book, but I just love the QAYG method. And I love your new La Conner line. I’m still working on my quilt using your High Tea fabrics. Love, love, love them. And as cute as your kids are, I always love the pictures of Paige. So silly. I have a corgi too.
I would love to learn how to QAYG.
Your book looks fantastic. Looking forward to hearing you on Pat’s show on Monday.
Your book looks wonderful!
Thank you for the chance to win one of your books. I love your new fabric line too!
I have both of you books and love them!
Can you explain how you mounted the quilt on the window?
I just love it!!! So clever
Thank you for a great explanation. I was looking online for a similar idea and really appreciate it

Lovely QAYG pin cushion. Is the pattern for this in your new book?

Hello. I’m writing from Stray Threads Quilt Guild in Redmond WA. My guild is hosting a quilt show in October 2018 (26th & 27th) and were wondering if you would be interested in being a guest designer. We are seeking local designers that we can feature for a 3 hour meet & greet on one of the days. How can I reach you?
