I've been plodding along all day working on quilting my Deadwood quilt. It's a group project quilt. The blocks were gifts from 1994! If all goes as predicted I'll take it off the Gammill tonight. Whoo-hoo, ready to bind! Also, today was filled with a gazillion phone calls - some very long. But that's business and I don't want to bore you.
One of my conversations was with Jan Magee, editor of The Quilt Life magazine. Maybe you've heard of it? Well, she was asking if I could spread the word that we are looking for fun photographs with the letters T Q L in the photo. I know my peeps are the most creative on the planet, so why not ask YOU to see what you can do. They can be for any month or season - or totally just whimsical. That's what we want. Here are a few that have appeared in recent issues of The Quilt Life magazine. I carved the apple.
We've even had a version spelled out with dog biscuits! What will your creative mind think of? I can't wait to see!
and if we use it we'll send you a free copy of the magazine!
Mindless rambling alert:
It rained this afternoon in La Veta. Yay!
Mable's big ole happy-dog tail keeps knocking some of my Streak of Lighting patches off of the design wall. How shall I solve that problem? (no pins please)
Tomorrow I'm going somewhere I've never been. Hint.... it's quilt related and I don't have to get on an airplane.
Ricky Tims is rolling out his new "Gaelic Blessing" quilt which features a variation on the Double Irish Chain pattern with a beautiful Celtic Cross done with minimal applique. This pseudo-traditional, easy-to-make quilt measures 63" x 63." Both the pattern and hand-dyed fabric kit are now available!.
Please take the poll below and help us determine how many patters and kits we should prepare, this does not obligate you in any way.
