Summer is Hanging On!
As I write this it is a 76 degree, not a cloud in the sky day here in North Iowa. I love it when it stays warm like this into September. The winter lasts long enough as it is. I don't need it starting any sooner than it has to. I started my fall decorating though. It's fun to get those pumpkins and mums out around the house. The gardens have been groomed for fall (which took all weekend!) so here we go. Unfortunately, today I have lots of work to do so I am looking out at this beautiful weather. I may just kick off my shoes in a bit and take a swing on the hammock.
I have finished two of my latest patterns and they are on their way to the distributors next week. I have the samples traveling with two of them to the fall quilt market in Houston as well. Hopefully, I will get some good feedback on those. I am excited to be included in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks issue that will be on newsstands November 16th. Designers have contributed blocks that are published as basically a "block book". The 1st volume last year was a huge success (I also had a block in that one). Look for it on newsstands; it's a really fun magazine. As the release date gets closer, I will post more information and also a picture of the block I designed. Meanwhile, I will post a photo here of one of my new designs called "Autumn Breezes". I do love to design season themed patterns!
Well, that's all for now. Happy Quilting!
