Road to California Photos!

Thursday, January 31, 2013
I had a great time at Road to California this past weekend.

Here are a bunch of photos from the show!

The left side of my booth.

My family posting photos to Instagram as soon as we were done setup!

Ready for day one

Doing ruler demos!




It was great to have Angela Walters in the booth for a book signing. Angela quilted all of the quilts in my booth so it was as if I had set up a gallery of her work!



We also had a chance to get a good photo of us!!

Thursday evening Emily Cier & Angela Walters gave a lecture on modern quilting. I don't have many photos since I spent most of the lecture holding their quilts. I feel very lucky to count these two talented ladies as friends.  

Time for day two!!
 


We passed over 4,000 facebook fans during the show!! I'll be having a giveaway over on facebook next week to celebrate.

Here is the entire booth

Day number three!


Sunday was the last day of the show. It was great having my family to help me out in my booth. Thank you to all the fans & supporters who stopped by!

We sold out of almost all the kits we took to the show! I have a few left and have listed them in my online store

This Thursday January 24th is also visit your Local Quilt Shop Day!

I'm a HUGE fan of Local Quilt Shops. Did you knowI worked in one for a few years? Yup!! A LQS is the best place to learn how to quilt! The service you get is also fantastic. I have a few shops that I consider my LQS since I've moved around. I've taught at all 3 of these shops and shop at them whenever I'm in town.

Sew Modern in Los Angeles, CA



Quilt in a Day in San Marcos, CA



The Village Quilter in Mount Holly, NJ



So this Thursday go drop in your Local Quilt Shop and let them know how much you appreciate them!!

Toes in the Sand!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Toes in the Sand is finally here!!

I've been busy shipping them out to shops & distributors so you should see them popping up in stores very soon!


I'm so incredibly happy with how they came out!! This is more a book than a pattern. 
It is 8 1/2" x 11" and has almost 40 pages! It is all full color and full of everything you need to make 12 blocks!! The blocks are created using the Hex N More Ruler or the full size templates that are included in the book.


Join Me!

I would love for you to come join me & others that are going to make this quilt. I have created a Flickr group that will serve as a place to share photos, quilt-a-long style. 


This book has 12 blocks that are intended to be made 2 a month for the course of a year. Many shops are participating in this block of the month. Some are featuring the same fabric, while others are using different fabrics.

Participating Shops



The Village Quilter - New Jersey
Sew Creative - Oregon
Tumbleweed Quilts - Massachusetts
Quilter's Way - Massachusetts
Hearts in Hand Quilts -Massachusetss
