PBS TV Re Broadcast-New Book Offer

The 1100 series of Lap Quilting will be re broadcast starting February 11, 2013 at 6:00 am and at 12:00 every Monday and then Friday on the network. Do check your local TV listings for an update. Then on March 29th the 1200 series will be shown. Maybe you are a new quilter or just want a refresher from the past series or maybe missed a couple of the shows, do tune in for lots of fast paced patchwork and quilting. The companion book for the 1100 series is Lap Quilting Lives, shown below.

On my Quilt Store page of my web site at you will find a new Trio Book Offer. Sadly, my last book, Georgia Bonesteel's Quiltmaking Legacy, is all sold out. Good reason to buckle down and finish the book in progress.
BTW--sorry for the misspelled word on the previous posting. That will teach me to edit first. It is six, not sic.

Quilt Retreat, 2013

Once again, my Freedom Escape, alias Montreat Quilters and now the Carson Spring Quilters met for the 29th year. As teacher, I was privileged to spend several days with them with my new Building Blocks pattern. Fun to see the patterns on the design wall and then the various color renditions. We had 29 busy stitchers so impossible to photo all for the longest blog every, but here are a choice few.
 Mary proudly sharing her golden choice of colors. Will await final version next year!
 Always the over achiever, JoAnn displays a completed wall hanging. Now--to the quilting.
 Patti had some fabric dilemmas, but no problem as that only makes for a more creative top.
 My Baby Blocks take on a new look set in a sic pointed star variation. Still to come, just the right border an to avoid those dreadful "Y" connections : splitting that top 60 degree diamond into two triangles for easy sewing in rows.
