I've been working really hard this week on Spoken For, my newest pattern. You know I'm loving the plaid.
The fabrics were designed by Karen Styles from Marcus Fabrics and are called Elizabeth's Dowry.
All of the sixteen blocks are unique.
When I got back to this quilt on Tuesday, my design wall looked like this.
Speaking of snow, it has now turned into Sierra Cement. The temps have been down in the low 20's during the night, which turns our world into an ice cube. It is worth your life to take a step outside. I'm staying inside with my sewing machine running full speed ahead.
Speaking of cold and snow, I can now share a piece of news with you. It's official......insert drum roll here.......I've been asked to teach on a 10-day Princess quilting cruise to Alaska in July of 2018!! I will be teaching the four days when the ship is at sea. The rest of the time, I get to have fun will all of the quilters at the ports of call and additional excursions. I'll be posting more details as they become available. I do know the ship will be leaving out of San Francisco. It will stop in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Tracy Arm Fjord, and Victoria, British Columbia. Start saving your money now, and get on board with me and make plans to quilt and cruise. Mr. Joe has his bags backed and he's ready to go!
