My Minnesota trip.

I am finally getting around to post about my trip to Minnesota.  I had a wonderful time there and the weather couldn't have been more perfect.  My first stop was at Just Sew Studio in St. Louis park.  Two days of long arm classes and Jennifer was a great host. 
I mean really, the weather was so perfect. 

Next stop was the WOW guild and I was able to teach a piecing class for the first time.  I taught my Bohemian pattern and we had a wonderful time together.  Isn't it fun to see all the different block possibilities?  Just by changing the colors?  It was fabulous and the ladies were so sweet! 

Thankfully I was able to get out and appreciate the beauty of the fall colors in Minnesota.  I even got to see the Mississippi River as well, now that's a big body of water!  Our little Virgin River here in Saint George is barely a trickle of water - except for when it floods - at that point, run!  It was so amazing though, you can find beauty everywhere in the world.

Last stop was at O2BQuilting where I had a fabulous time with these ladies.  I am always so grateful for the kindness of quilters.  I feel so lucky to meet so many of you and can't thank you enough for coming out to my classes! 

Here's a little sample of the quilting I shared.  Thanks everyone for a fabulous time in Minnesota! 

I got home in time to enjoy Halloween with the kids.  They are growing up so fast, so I am soaking in every moment with them.  It was a wonderful holiday. 

And, here's a peak of Janet's quilt that I am working on.  I am excited that the quilting is going so well.  I will keep posting here on my blog, but for the day to day posts of all that is happening in my little world please follow me on Facebook, or Instagram.  

Take care until next time!  Oh, and thanks for the love on my iquilt class!  You are all the best!

All in the Studio.

So, I haven't been able to share complete projects with you because I am working on my book, but I figured a couple of sneak peeks would be fun.  First things first though, I am completely distracted by beautiful fabric.  If you know me, it's been hard to keep bundles of fabric in my studio.  I end up giving them away because I can't get to the projects away. So, I have made myself a new goal!  The goal is to keep the fat quarter bundles that I can't live without. I do, after all - co-own a quilt shop. ;-) Good Karma is one of those bundles I can't live without, isn't the fabric just gorgeous?  It is sitting in my studio just looking pretty and waiting for the project to be made into.

So, this is my first sneak peek.  Gorgeous, eh? 
I finished last week and the quilt turned out fantastic, and huge!  I don't know why I made the quilt so big, but I am happy to be finished with it.  I can't wait to share the entire project with you, but you'll have to wait. It will be worth it, I promise. 

To keep my own sanity in the studio, I always try to have a "want to" project going.  This want to project is the Metro Medallion quilt by Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I am going to make a queen size quilt for my bed.  I am looking to update the colors in my room and I love the colors I have chosen for this project.
You can also see another peek of one of my other quilts for my book. 

Life is busy, but it sure is fun. This little boy is the light of my life - his father's too.  We are so happy to have another year with him home while his older siblings are in school.  This picture was taken last week when we went to Superior Threads to get thread for our customers.  He was so helpful.  He looked for the numbers on the So Fine thread, I told him how many to put in the basket and he pulled the whole order for me.  It took twice as long, but it was so worth it.  Love this boy.  

I hope you are enjoying October so far, I can't believe it is October already.  Time moves too quickly, but we are doing our best to enjoy the journey.
