Coming soon and a giveaway!

Hello friends! It’s been too long since we’ve chatted, and it’s completely my fault. Thing is, production is in full swing over here for my Spring 2011 patterns so things are busy, busy, busy! I’m officially signed up to exhibit at International Quilt Market this spring (and I couldn’t be more nervous, or excited!) so I’ve got a deadline looming.

All this excitement of course doesn’t keep me entirely focused on work. See that picture above? That wall was just screaming for some Valentine’s Day love, and I had to oblige. So, I took a little page out of Quilt Dad’s book, and made myself a little wonky block wall hanging out of some fabulous scraps. Of course, he uses a square to start off with, but since I was working with a heart, and it was more rectangular, I opted to try out the wonkiness (is that a word?) with a triangle instead. I am happy to say it worked out just lovely. A little Bleached White Moda Bella Solid, and some raw edge applique, and voila! I just threw it in a frame I had laying around, and things are just a little more festive around here.

Now, on to the giveaway! My cute little mom over at Gracious Rain is trying out her hand at quilting for the first time (with a little bit of threatening encouragement from her quilty daughter) and I’ve decided to celebrate by sponsoring a giveaway on her blog! So head on over, because 2 kits for my All Boxed Up table runner are up for grabs–perfect for spring in Kate Spain’s first line, Verna.

I’ll be back soon with some other fun stuff, promise!
