What new quilt patterns will the new year bring? What beautiful fabrics will we be adding to our stash? How many UFOs will we complete?
A new year of quilting brings much excitement and opportunity to be creative. Along with all the new quilts I hope to make, this is going to be my year to finish up all my UFOs. (But then you probably heard that from me last year and the year before so you won’t take it too seriously.)
I want to congratulate Karen, the winner of the ebook version of my 10-book Quilting Cozy series earlier this month. Karen, I hope you’ll enjoy this complete set of the series and that you will drop me a line (QuiltingCozy@gmail.com) as you’re reading and let me know what you think. Congratulations to you! Everyone else, stay tuned for future Give-Aways!
I also want to welcome all my new followers. I promise not to inundate you with emails. I generally only do one or two blogs a month — just enough for us to keep up with each other. I do encourage you to leave comments. I try to answer them all, time permitting. There is also a CONTACT ME page on this website where you can write to me privately. I love hearing from my readers, quilters, followers, and friends.
While I’m here, I wanted to tell you about my book signing at Capital Quilts in Gaithersburg, Maryland this past weekend. (What an incredible shop!) The delightful group of quilters and readers had many questions about the books, my characters, and the writing process in general which led to a lively and fun discussion. My hand is still stiff from all that signing – the customers bought every book on the shelf. Time spent with quilters and in a quilt shop just can’t be beat!
During the month of January 2019, C&T Publishing will be re-releasing the last two books of the ten-book Quilting Cozy series. Both of these books, Tattered and Torn and Left Holding the Bag offer a glimpse into quilters’ past. In Tattered and Torn, Sarah and Sophie attempt to track down the history of a vintage quilt while Left Holding the Bag offers a look into the world of feedsack fabric. Mystery, relationships, a side trip to New Orleans, and lots of quilting abound in both books. As always, the pattern for the cover quilt is included with each book. Enjoy!
So that’s probably it for 2018. I’ll see you again in the new year and I wish you a happy holiday season and a joyful new year.
My very best wishes to all.
