January Block Posted - One more month to go

The January Block for my "Life in the Midwest' Block of the Month has been uploaded to my website.  I can;t believe it has already been a year since we began.  The final block will be posted in February. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of everyone's completed quilt.  This year expect another BOM project and maybe a mystery quilt too!

Two fun classes added

I will be teaching two fun classes at The Quilt Shoppe in Stewartsville, MO. http://www.quiltshoppeonline.com

The first will be March 31 from 10am - 1pm. It will be a race to the finish to complete a quilt top with 1600 inches of 2 1/2" strips! Make a quilt top in an afternoon.

The second class will be April 21 from 10am - 1pm.  Participants are asked to pick up Thangles at the store.  Make as many (or few) half-square triangles that you want by September 26.  Then more you bring, the more you will get in return. Then in October, you will receive as many as you have dropped off. We will present many options for using these triangles (the best way to achieve a scrappy quilt). We just ask that you use your favorite 100% quilting cottons (purchased at an independent quilt shop).  See you soon, and lets start swapping!

Need Your Help!

So, for the second time is as many months, someone signed up for one of my quilting classes because they and I quote "saw me in a magazine"  Not knowing what magazine this could be, I am asking all quilters to look through their magazines for the past year and see if you find any pictures of my quilts. I would really appreaciate it, because I would like to find a copy somewhere.
