Sewing Competition and Retreat!

First of all, I just had to share this cute little mini-quilt my friend Dolores sent me with a quilted version of my apple logo. Using Sandy Klop fabric no less! I love it and I'm going to hang it in my sewing room. It's motivating me to get in there and clean up some of my mess so that I can see it better. ;)

A few other public service announcements:  Rachel of the blog Family Ever After is hosting Season 2 of the "Sew-vivor" sewing competition! I am a guest judge this year (but don't let that fact minimize the coolness of this opportunity.)

Auditions are open if you want to compete and show off your sewing chops! Go here for all the rules, competition topics, and other details and go here to learn about entering the competition and the sweet prizes involved!

And finally, there are still spots available for Riley Blake's first annual Fabric Fest. I'm so excited to spend 4 days with a bunch of fun, sew-y people. Go here for all the details!
I'll be teaching a few classes on modern quilting, quilt-as-you-go techniques, and what to do with all your scraps. Please let me know if you are going - I would love to meet you!


  1. What a fun little quilt, so inspiring!

  2. The retreat would be so fun! Vegas is actually relatively close. I just really hate going there. :P

    I know, come to San Diego!!

  3. Wow I WISH I could come to Vegas and spend time with you!!!

  4. So, I want to know, are you dressing up like that in Vegas? ;o)

  5. Aw...glad you like it buddy!:)

  6. Gah! So cool you are going to the Riley Blake thing in Vegas. What fun! Why are all these events on the west coast? I want to come!


Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.
