Quiltmaker magazine  is inviting everyone to a BACK TO SCHOOL party!


Each weekday from Sept. 10 to 14, please join them for “Quilty Pleasures“,  for a free quilt pattern in bite-size  morsels, tips and techniques and giveaways galore!  The idea is to celebrate fall with a fun,  easy new project!

On Monday, my Knick-Knack fabric will be featured.

They will be giving away Knick-Knack fabric on Monday!  Be sure to check their blog tomorrow for details.



I have used the Electric Quilt software since it first came out in, hmmm I think it was 1991 or so.  The Electric Quilt Company is lovingly known as “EQ”.  The software is now in its seventh version, EQ7 and is still my go-to software.

Recently, they started a new webpage: Do You EQ? and it is just chock full of free downloads, lessons and the like.  I’m honored to be featured as a “Do you EQ” artist.

What a nice surprise to be contacted Sarah at EQ yesterday, she had seen my quilt in October/November issue of The Quilter magazine, using my Knick-Knack fabric line and knew I used EQ7 to create it.

What a nice surprise to see my quilt in their blog today! (EQ blog link)
