2019 Best Year Ever, In The News, Rambling On

Flying High in February

They say “birds of a feather flock together” and that’s true in quilting circles also! Oh do I have some fabulous friends that I flock with ~ and do I like feathers! I’m soaring high today with TWO huge announcements so without too much pre-ramble let’s talk quilts! 

Twilight Chic Week

Flying high as time flies by….so eager to share the announcement today from Deb Tucker’s blog – Monday kicks off #twilightchicweek which is simply a snazzy hashtag introduction to a week long blog hop showcasing Deb Tucker’s signature fabric line, Twilight Chic, by Kathy Engle for Island Batik. And yes, yours truly is part of the blog hop!! I’m sew excited to share with you the secret sewing project I’ve been working on this past week! The schedule is listed below and I will be the caboose on this quilt train! You are in for a fabulous ride! The CI’s (Deb’s Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors) will be your guide as we share our creations using this beautiful fabric line. Countdown! The event begins Monday February 4th concluding Saturday February 9th.  Be sure to follow Deb’s Social Media for all the links (you may also bookmark this page) and check out her website for giveaway details.

Free-Flowing Formal Feathers!

You may or may not remember one of my road trips last August ~ actually I took flight (pun intended) to Utah for the filming of two episodes for  Quilt It! The Longarm Quilting Show filmed at Handi-Quilter’s Headquarters.

Well!!!!! Drumroll please…or in keeping with the silly theme, flap them wings sister! 

I’m so pleased to announce that my episodes on Season 8 will be airing soon!  As in Februray 6th and 13th!!!  You do need to subscribe to Quilting Company TV to view – they have a reasonable monthly subscription – details here – or you can wait about 6 months for the pubic release.
