I just got the new issue of Modern Patchwork in the mail! I was very excited to see my Forest Daybreak quilt in this issue!

And of course we have all the aqua and teal stash builders in stock that will work with this pattern too. I’m glad to..

I love seeing all my friends in one place and I met A LOT of new and really cool people too. The show was amazing this year. There were SO many great quilts. I really loved it. Heather and all the ladies and gents that helped put this event on did a wonderful job. I didn’t vend this year and I’m really glad I didn’t. I got a chance to take a break from work (sort of) and really enjoy the show. And now I’m home and back to work. Luckily, the snow is starting to melt. After that taste of warm weather in Austin I really became done with winter. If you haven’t already picked up a copy of the..
