Courthouse Steps

Sewing just for the fun of it, at a leisurely pace, has been a real treat.
  Even at minimal speed, these Courthouse Steps blocks are growing. 

Psycho Kitty and I have finally agreed on a block arrangement.

Unless, of course, he changes his mind again.
Have a good week.

I'll share more about this later, but for now, I just wanted to share the cover
of my new book, Scrap-Basket Beauties.

Eighteen more quilts using Jelly Rolls, scraps, and stash fabrics.  Coming in March. 
I hope you'll love it as much as I do. 
Here's a little sneak peak of a few of the quilts on the cover of Martingale's catalog.
And speaking of Martingale, rumor has it there's a Black Friday sale going on over there.

Covington County Quilters Guild

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of teaching a class in Andalusia, Alabama for the Covington County Quilters Guild.  They're such a great group of quilters, and it was such a fun day.  I'm just now getting around to sorting through some photos, and I'd like to share some with you.  Here's the "class picture."


 We had a trunk show of some of the quilts from my books.  Here are just a few. 
My friend Karen (a/k/a Nana Girl) went along with me.  She brought along some of her quilts as well, and we had a second trunk show in the afternoon.  Twice the fun!  Here are just a few of Karen's quilts.  You can visit her blog to read about them. 

Two trunk shows AND a few quilts shared by guild members -- what a treat!  Cheryl was in one of my classes at the Quilt Symposium of Alabama, and drove to Andalusia to hang out with us.  Here's a picture of her Flowers for Nana Girl quilt.  She used a sunflower theme.  Just gorgeous!

Here's a guild member, Karen, holding her Omigosh quilt.  A work of art.  You wouldn't believe how tee-tiny the pieces are in this quilt.

And I believe Karen made this quilt, too, but I got sidetracked when I was snapping the picture, and now I can't remember. 

Thank you so much, ladies, for inviting me, and for being such a fun group.  It was a blast!

Have a great week!
