As I travel around the country - I have the delightful pleasure of meeting MANY MANY quilters!!!! Although we all look different and come in all range of ages, I especially love it when I meet young quilters. As such the case with Holly! Check out her work - WOW! And it looks like she is getting the judges attention also. Nice job Holly and CONGRATS on the ribbons!



Congratulations to moonwoman for her outstanding quilt exhibited at PIQF.











Did you get to attend the PIQF in Santa Clara, California? The show runs all weekend (October 16-19) and is a great show to visit.  It has wonderful quilts and many of our friends--Superior Threads (Bob & Heather Purcell), Cranberry Quiltworks (Gina Halladay-Quiltersbuzz.com), John Flynn &  Brooke (John is joining us in Season 4), Bernina, Gammill and many more. 

It's better to see the show in person but you will attend with TQS.  Join us as we show a sample of the quilts this year.  Embellishments and texture were everywhere.  Colors were outstanding and, of course, the wonderful Japanese quilts.  Over the next 5 days you will get a special view of a sample of the exciting quilts at the show. Come back often as the quilts will change every couple of hours.  Lots of quilts to see.



Once again, the quilters are going to descend on Alden Lane, in Livermore, CA. January 21,22 & 23, 2009. I will be teaching an extended workshop based on my book Simply Stars. The price is $250.00 and it includes lunch every day. To register you can email Cyndee at cyndeec@aldenlane.com or call at 925-447-0280. This class is my "signature" class and it is rare I have the delicious opportunity to teach it in a extended format - I look forward to this event and hope you can join us!



First Clue: This year once again, Ricky and I were unanimous with our vote - no discussion needed at all! We will let you know before the show airs, who this years pick was - but let the tease begin. This years person, is not only a quilter but a master gardener- His/Her pepper jam was to die for!





Ok, this time I'll give you the answers, but you have to figure out which block it applies to.
