I brought home some goodies from England for you!
It was fun to see all the various publications that we can’t get here.
The covers are intriguing, and I wanted to devour each and every one ---some things are the same as what we can get here, I think the internet and digital media has made it so we all see what each country is doing in live time, and that is wonderful, but I also love to catch glimpses of how things are different, how things THERE reflect the life and the times of the people in that country.
Katy Jones, Editor of Quilt Now Magazine!
I first learned of Katy when my Scrappy Trips quilt went viral thanks to Katy starting a #scrappytripalong on Instagram. VIRAL doesn’t begin to describe what happened to that lowly little charity quilt pattern that I published in 1999. Fun how new fabrics and a whole new onslaught of quilters can give an oldie but a goodie new life!
When Katy messaged me after reading that I was on the plane to the UK, we arranged a meet up.
You can find Katy’s blog HERE and be watching for her new fabric line, Priory Square from Art Gallery Fabrics to be available soon. I hope to be bumping into her in Houston in October! ((If I’m able to make it, the jury is still out on that one!))
At any rate..Katy gifted me THESE copies to offer to you as a give-away!
It’s a value packed issue, including supplies and pattern for TWO strawberry pincushions in each package, one for you, one for a friend!

On the Quilty side…
I was up at 4am, couldn't sleep ---((Thought I was over the jet lag!)) and puttered around in the sewing room searching for border fabrics for a project I was working on in June. JUNE! It’s been borderless since JUNE! Well, I plan to fix that this next week when Siobhan and Tonya come to retreat with me at Quilt Villa. I’m making piles of everything that needs to go!
My stash is ages old and full of many treasures. Fabric really doesn't have an expiration date does it? How long has this been waiting for just the right project?
I love my fabric no matter how long I've had it. To me it's about color and value and texture and emotion and not about any one particular designer, manufacturer or fabric line. I feel very much in the minority where that is concerned. I just want to choose and use my fabric without labels.
And oh yeah…there WILL be QUILT CAM tonight at 9pm Eastern! Bring a project, come to the blog, find the post and click the arrow to start the feed and sew with me!
See you then!
