She's BACK!!!




Yes, I won a ribbon for being "The Most Inconsistent Blogger EVER!

But seriously, "Food Frenemies" won an Honorable Mention at the AQS Fall Paducah Quilt Show this week. 

I thought it would be too silly a quilt to be considered by the judges, but I am so pleased.

Thank you for messages of concern.  I am still kicking.  CRAZY summer, same as all of you, with not enough quilting time.  

AND I am working on a super-secret reproduction project from something dated during the 1600's.  SO COOL!  I am not going to reveal any of it until I have gotten past the tipping point.  I think lots of you will be interested in doing it, perhaps.  I am certainly obsessed with it myself.  

When I did my "Baltimore Rhapsody" music blocks/quilt and let the block posts just trickle out, I was shocked that people were actually wanting patterns of the blocks.  I was always feeling behind and stressed about getting blocks done in a timely fashion and getting the patterns prepared.

(Still feel like that as I try to finish the saxophones and folk instruments...sigh.) 

That is how I backed into selling my patterns.  That project appealed to a certain niche of musician and musician-lovers.

This time, I want to be past a certain point before I reveal so that I can get out in front of all you speedsters who might be interested in it, as well.

THIS IS GOING TO BE SUCH A COOL, UNIQUE PROJECT!

I have been drawing blocks for 2-3 months now.  Now I am beginning to choose fabrics and construct each block.  So much fun...I wish sleep wasn't necessary.

I have LOTS of photos from the Fall Paducah Show to share with you, starting Monday.  I should have all the pictures loaded on my computer by then.  Plus, I am going to a small, sort-of-local show this morning where I will take pictures.  They only have a show every other year, but that guild has some GREAT appliquers!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking in on me.  I will try harder to be "home" when you do!

In stitches,
Teresa   :o)

  2. SO nice to hear from you. I was going through my reading list just this week and considered deleting you because you hadn't posted in a while. It's been a very busy summer for me, too, and it doesn't look to be slowing down any time soon. I am trying to get a little bit of time in the sewing room every day that I am home. Congrats on your win!! Looking forward to seeing your new project.
