Revitalizing

Hello fellow quilters. It's been so long since I blogged that I honestly wasn't sure I could even figure it out. Facebook and Instagram are so fast that I have really funneled most of my social media presence there as time is at a premium. I will give you a quick run down of some of what I have been up to. Quilt market happened. This year was in Portland, Oregon which was really nice. I have never attended that market before and it was a really  great market for me. I flew alone and had a very basic booth- booth in a bag.
Which actually worked out just fine. I released a couple of new designs and took along some of the designs that I released last market that are still going strong. The quilt in the top photo is Trellis and it is made from Diamond Textiles wovens. I love Diamond Textiles and use a lot of their fabric. I also released a new wool Block of the Month. Check your local quilt shop for availability. It is called The Seed Merchants.
I love this quilt. It has been in my sketchbook for a while now. It is a representation of old seed catalogs. If  you know me well at all then you know I love old vintage ephemera. This quilt is an 8 month program. Seven blocks plus borders. If you are interested in just the pattern set, it is available on my website.
Simply Vintage #27 is now available on my website as well. In case you missed it- I designed the 2018 Mystery Quilt. It is called Manor House and is wool applique on a grunge dot background. Part 1 was released in issue 26 and now part 2 is in the latest issue. 
Here is a peek at the first two parts. You can check out the magazine for a better view. Since I am just getting back, I won't drag you down with a super long post. 
 I will be back on Thursday and every week after that as part of the Splendid Sampler II design team. The first Splendid Sampler was so well received that a second one is on the way. Each week a free block will be posted and I will share my version of the block along with tips. 
You can get more info, including the name of the designers and links to their sites at https://www.thesplendidsampler.com/2018/04/10/a-very-splendid-sequel-indeed/
I hope to see you here each week!
Happy Quilting,
Dawn
