Sometimes it is hard when you are working on fun and exciting projects but you can’t share with anyone because of the contracts you agree to.
I tend to make a bunch of samples using leftover and scrap fabrics. Since I make all of my own templates I like to print them and try it and see how they line up when actually using fabrics.
Being able to make and create templates for the designs I want to quilt is one of the fun parts of the project. Most of the time they work straight away but there are others that require a back and forth from the printer and the scissors. “This tab is too long or too short or if I clip this corner here it would allow for easy alignment.”
I have just started working on the first round of my 25 projects for book #2. I am super excited and grateful to the publisher that they want to do a second book with me. On top of that I have been finishing up a few projects for Quilty and Modern Ptachwork. Two should be out in the near future (Jan-Feb issues) and a few others after that. Also just was asked to do some more work for Popular Patchwork who featured my “Peaks and Valleys” quilt on the cover not too long ago.
