Island Batik Ambassador

The highlight of my year has been that I was accepted as an Ambassador for Island Batiks.  I'm very excited to work with these beautiful fabrics and promote them in different ways.  I will be bringing sneak peeks of new fabrics, new projects and published projects, so keep watching this site for the most recent posts.

This is a sneak peak at some of the new fabrics that will be coming out this fall with Island Batiks.  I get the privilege to start designing with them now!

Dreams of Winter Gold

This special edition magazine from Quilter's World is called Quilting for the Holidays/November 2014. I have a project in this called Dreams of Winter Gold.  It is a bed runner made with beautiful Silent Night fabrics from Island Batiks.

Here is a partial photo of the runner.  The fabrics have a lot of gold print in them.  I designed the project while watching the 2014 Winter Olympics.  That inspired the name of the quilt- Dreams of Winter Gold.

I also have a project called Stretched Nine Patch Place Mats in the magazine.

Quilt Storage

Do any of you have the same trouble I do - what to do with all your lovely quilts?  My husband and I had been looking around for some kind of cabinet or shelving unit to store some of my quilts.  We finally found this lovely curio cabinet at a consignment shop in our town.  We just love it.  It has has glass on the top, the front and both sides.  You can see the quilts from any side!

This unit holds about 13 quilts.  Now what to do with all the other quilts....
