Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Good morning from Maine,
Is it really Spring? I suppose it is, somewhere. We could finally see our driveway and our front yard after most of the snow melted from this winter. THAT didn't last long. Last night we had about 5-6 inches of snow fall, and we're supposed to get another 1-3 inches today. Here are some pictures that I took earlier this morning (about 7:00 am). Have a great day.…Continue
The once quiet office is now bustling with activity since the Lancaster crew has returned. They are tired, but it is a good tired. I’ve already heard stories about how nice the Lancaster area is to visit and how they enjoyed being at the Lancaster County Convention Center. Great stories about the quilters they met and helped at the show, the funny things that happened and lots more.

There was such a crazy happening at the introduction to my new book "Wonderful 1 Fabric Curves" at the Capital City Quilt Guild in Lansing, MI. The cover quilt, made by Jan Gagliano, and "Medallion Daisies" were just shown when a bat flew into the building and 150 quilters had to evacuate SSSSSSSOOOOOOOO the presale book signing was postponed. What an omen to crazy fun times coming.

Good Morning Quilters!

The show has gotten some local press, and we thought it would be fun to share this with you. See a few amazing quilts and hear from Bonnie Browning, Executive Director of the Quilt Shows.

I heard from the AQS staff in Lancaster a few minutes ago. They are about finished with set up and are excited about the show opening tomorrow at the Lancaster County Convention Center. This is the second year we will have the show there and we are enjoying the city and the facility. I believe the vendors are happy, too, and working hard to finish setting up their booths.
I can’t wait to find out who the Best of Show winner is. That announcement will be made at 8:40 tomorrow morning…Continue
