C&T Blog Post about I Love Precut Quilts! and a Show

YAY!  I should be receiving an advance copy of my new book any day now...maybe even tomorrow.  :)

In the meantime, C&T blogged about my book on Friday.  Here's the link.  Check it out -- it shows several of the projects and features the introduction from the book.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.......

I Love Precut Quilts! Blog Post


Now I don't normally vend at shows because I'm more of a designer/quilter/author/lecturer but one of our local shows, Octoberfest,  lowered its fee so I thought I'd take a chance since I have umpteen quilts that need to find new homes.  (Honestly, I think I need to start a quilt adoption program.)

Although sales weren't that great and I went home with almost all the quilts that I took with me -- umm, that was around 66 -- I had a great time and did a lot of networking about my book, lectures, teaching, etc.  So, maybe this show will surprise me at some point in the future.

Here's some pics of my booth.  I was pretty luck that the vendor diagonal to me never showed so I, of course, offered to fill the space with quilt eye candy.  (wink, wink!)


  1. Very nice and I can't wait for the book to come out!

  2. Nice booth. I got to show off (not sell) some of my vintage machines. Since I've been doing this longer than any of the others, and, since I was the first in this building, I get more space (Woohoo!) and can spread out almost as much as I want. I'm not a precut fan. I like to prewash my fabrics, since I've had problems with quilt quality fabrics bleeding, especially in the last few years. I'd rather cut my own fabrics (and I hate cutting). It does look like a nice book. Good luck.
