Pillow Talk


The Moda blog hop starts tomorrow! Take a trip over the Atlantic and visit Aneela Hoey in Great Britain. She is a new designer for Moda fabrics and her first line of fabric will be released this April. She's already posted her note and has a giveaway of her fabric too!

The quilt above was made from a "layer cake" of our Antique Fair fabric from Moda.

Our "Pillow Talk" day is Feb. 2. On the second we will be giving the pattern for the quilt above.

This has to be short today. A Stitcher's Journey is turning out to be about 52 pages! I have to finish it up and get it to the printer or we won't have a book for market!

We are expecting a winter blizzard here! Just right for staying at home and working.

Hope you are all warm and safe!

  16. HI -- Beautiful quilt and fabrics. Almost makes me wish I quilted, but I spend all of my time stitching your cross stitch designs. Even though I was fortunate enough to attend two of your classes this past year, I am eagerly awaiting A Stitcher's Journey.
    Good luck in getting it ready for market.

  19. Can't wait for your new book to come out. Will be calling my LNS for a copy as soon as they have it. We are getting ready for the blizzard here too, around 2 feet of snow. I'll be burning some of my favorite scents of candles and doing a lot of stitching.

  21. Love the new quilt top. Would love to have the pattern.
    My first day back to classes is most likely to be cancelled on Wed. and it would be a great day to stay in cozy and quilt.
    I will have to look for a layer cake of the new line.
    I just can't seem to get enough of your designs. My eternal thanks for the talents of BBD.

  26. That quilt is so charming. I love the basket block and the red background. I keep coming back to look at it. I must get to a fabric shop and see your new fabric line because I don't think the photos I've seen so far do it justice.
