It’s that time of year again – when the quilt designers are busy as can be behind the scenes getting ready for fall market, but aren’t quite ready for the full reveal yet. That means I am really lacking for blogging material lately! I hope to start sharing the new designs in the next week or so.
If you want to see them sooner, you will have to join me at Gruber’s Quilt Shop this Saturday for their School House event. It will be just like school house at Quilt Market, only it’s for regular quilters (not shop owners). I will be speaking after lunch at the main assembly. In addition to sharing my newest patterns, I will be giving a trunk show and showing lots of quilts. There are a few spots left, so it’s not too late to sign up. Just contact Gruber’s at 320-259-4360 or click here for more info.
And – since I can’t do a post without a few photos, I thought I would share this fun quilt that my Mom made.
It’s called Race Track and it’s from my Little Quilts for Little Kids book. The fabrics are from an older line from Riley Blake and they are perfect for this design.
The piecing is super simple and there is just a touch of machine applique. The road doesn’t quite look like a road without a car on it!
My original version from the book is the one below.
It’s another Riley Blake line, but I like Mom’s version with the car fabric better. By the time I was making this quilt, that fabric line was long gone. You know how it is, grab it while you can! They are out of print before you know it.
If you are interested, you can see more from the Little Kids book here.
That’s all for today – I hope to see a few of you at Gruber’s on Saturday!
