I have a few more weeks of summer left but today I woke up with that energized feeling that usually comes in fall and on New Year’s Day. Suddenly I want to finish up my summer projects and get going on a new year for Quilt Cabana Patterns. My company calendar runs Sept. to Sept. (in my mind) because I started QCP in the month of September. I have a lot of “irons in the fire” at the moment and each one brings a new challenge and chance to bring you all something new.
First of all, my quilt, “Boo-tacular”, will be featured in the Oct./Nov. issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. The lovely staff over there sent me a wonderful picture of the quilt in the magazine to be used on my blog/website but I don’t believe I can post that until the magazine is on the newstand in the next few weeks. Once I see it’s out there for sale, I’ll post the picture. I can’t wait to share it with all of you!!
Soon I’ll be getting my “Leahbelle’s Garden” quilt pattern ready for sale. This quilt was featured in McCall’s Quick Quilts in July. This quilt is a tribute to my grandmother’s garden. This grandmother would be Leahbelle, not Daisy, who I mentioned in my previous post on “Why We Quilt”. Leahbelle was also an avid seamstress and all around crafter as well as a gardener. I’m lucky to be blessed with such creative roots.
I can’t wait to record the next episode of Quilt Cabana Corner which will come out in September. I have lots of ideas for that podcast as well as the popular Magazine Round-Up!
I’ll be taking my yearly trip to Keepsake Quilting the week after next. Pictures will be posted!
Little Quilt For Big Occasions continues to do well and I hope you all have ordered your copy either from me or the other retailers I’ve listed in recent posts. You can still get a copy and if you live in MA, you can have it signed personally by me at Pieceful Quilters in Middleboro, MA on Sept. 10th from 1-3pm.
Also in the works is something of a personal challenge I’ve been working on for the last month. This will take some time to complete and all I can tell you is that it will involve your ebook reader and quilting….
Do you feel Fall-ish yet? What’s on your to do list for the cooler months that you have been putting off all summer long?
Have a super day!
