As I'm writing this, the snow is falling and blowing here in north Iowa.  I think it's a little to early for all of this, but when it's before Christmas, I don't mind too much.  Once January comes, I'd like it to be out of here!  Ha Ha! Like that will happen.  If this is your first time visiting my blog, welcome! Feel free to look at my previous blog posts to see what I have been up to!  I am a quilt pattern designer who has been designing and selling quilt patterns for about 7 years.  I have a book out from Martingale & Company called Country Fresh Quilts.  My new book, Scrap Quilts Go Country, will be in stores February 7, 2011.  I am so excited!

Speaking of January.....that marks the inaugural issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine!  This is an all new online magazine that will be full of great patterns and other quilting information.  I have a pattern in this magazine for the table runner/wall hanging shown here.     I'm so excited to be in the first ever issue of this magazine!

Happy Quilting!

Yes, the cold has set in here in north Iowa.  The snow has fallen and so have the temps!  As I write, I have my little space heater going in my studio and with the door closed, I seem to be able to warm up the room enough to make it comfy.  I wanted to let those of you who are on Facebook know that I have created a Facebook page for my pattern business.  Look up Snuggles Quilts Pattern Company and you will see information on my upcoming patterns and tentative release dates.  I'm trying to find as many ways as I can to promote my business and this is just another one.  Welcome to the 21st century (as my daughter would say!)  So, pay me a visit if you are on Facebook and let your other quitling Facebook friends know!

Get ready for another great magazine.  This one is an online one!  It's called The Quilt Pattern Magazine.  I have a pattern in that magazine called Garden of Stars.  It is a pattern that is pieced and,  depending on which appliques you choose, can be a wall hanging or a table runner.  I will post more about the magazine and the project next week.  Meanwhile, click here to see a preview on the magazine:

This looks to be a fun magazine!

Happy quilting everyone!
