Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: News & Catching Up!

Hi friends! I love seeing all the quilts you have entered in the Festival! If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time!  Visit this post and select a category your quilt falls into, and link up.  Also, there have been lots of nominations, but there’s always room for more – select a favorite from all the categories to nominate for Viewer’s Choice.  I will sort through all the nominations over the weekend, and then we vote for our top three favorites!

I had a great Market experience with a full schoolhouse, and four signings giving me a chance to chat with a number of shop owners and fans.  I’m still in recovery and catch up mode around the house, but today I’m planning to ignore the laundry and enjoy my birthday! I think I will pull out my Dancing Stars blocks … Read More »


Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7

ETA : Winner is Sally, who likes to set her blocks on point!

Guess what? I’m excited to have a  block in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7!  I’m a part of the Blog Hop today hosted by Quiltmaker.  Join in the fun for your chance to win a copy at the end of the post.

My block is called Enchanted, you will find it on page 52 of the magazine.  I love watching blocks interact in a quilt top, and thought I would share a couple of options with you!

I love the simple, secondary elements within a full quilt top.

And a runner  set on-point, would make a fun addition to your table!

I think the block is much more fun in a group :)  How would you set … Read More »



Modern Patchwork – Spring 2013

Posted on April 22nd, by Amy in Magazine/Featured. 4 comments

Thanks for the well wishes on Modern Neutrals – I just realized that my post didn’t post as I wrote it, there was lots left off!  Sorry, I had wanted to tell you more about the inspiration and let you know where you could view more information.  So I’ve updated the post, if you’d like to read more.

Modern Patchwork is in bookstores and shipping now from Interweave! I have this sewing tote patterned in the magazine, along with an article about Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

The tote features 7 pockets. One for blocks, that also doubles as a ironing surface on the go.  One zippered pocket with clear vinyl, for little notions.  And room for a cutting mat, rulers, rotary cutters and more in the rest!

I haven’t had the chance to put … Read More »



Quilt Scene

Later today the Blogger’s Quilt Festival voting will end! Be sure to vote for your favorites in each category, AND your absolute favorite for the Viewer’s Choice quilts!

While you all decide on your favorites, I thought I would share this magazine on shelves now.

Quilt Scene is an annual issue by Interweave, and  I love all the information that they have packed into this issue!  Along with projects to stitch up, there are images of the quilts that were hanging in Houston, and articles to encourage us to build new skills and try new things.

My Bella table runner is included in this edition, even better it came home yesterday and will once again grace our family table!  I love the quick and easy nature of the project, and it’s a great shot of  color … Read More »



Featured :: Generation Q Magazine & That Patchwork Place 2013 Quilt Calendar

Posted on August 21st, by Amy in Magazine/Featured. 4 comments

My mailman has been busy bringing happy mail to our mailbox lately!

Last week, the new issue of Generation Q Magazine was delivered. During the month of May, I quickly pieced and finished a quilt with a little fall flair.  The issue is packed with info for quilters, and I’m happy to be included among great designers sharing fun patterns!

Once I have my quilt back I’ll share pictures – I promise! For now, you can check out where to buy the magazine here, and I noticed that Fat Quarter Shop already has it listed here.

Just yesterday my 2013 calendar arrived! I usually buy a calendar at the end of  November or December, since I rely more on my phone/ipad calendar a paper one is less necessary.  But, I’ve found paper calendars really helpful when … Read More »



Modern Patchwork + Just Ask JoAnn

I was so excited to pull my copy of Modern Patchwork from the mailbox yesterday!  (I even got an extra to giveaway to one of you – read on!) 

It’s full of home decor projects, bags, quilts and more – I had a couple of minutes to look through it, and can’t wait to make a few myself.  Here’s a peek at my clutch, and pillow cover that are both included.

They did such a great job with this magazine – I love all the photos, and the layout!  It’s available online and on newsstands now.

Over the course of a few months, and a number of emails, I shipped my iPad and computer case to JoAnn for a photo shoot!

I’m told these are available beginning this month in … Read More »
