My block is on the cover!

Look what landed on my doorstep yesterday!  My complimentary copies of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 3. 

....and my block is on the cover!!

 There it is! Horizon block- the red, black and white block right there!

Check me out!  My name and website right there in a real quilting magazine! 

Pardon all my exclamation points but this is big for me!

The magazines will hit stands May 10th so run out and get yourself one! There are so many talented designers and fabulous blocks jam packed into this one issue.  You won't be disappointed. 

There will be a blog tour the first week of May where you will be able to visit the blogs of most of the designers featured in the issue.  Be sure to follow along.  The info is not posted just yet but check closer to May 2nd by clicking HERE.

p.s.- I have another fun accomplishment to announce next week.. stay tuned.

Tutus coming soon!

I have had many requests for a tutu tutorial and pattern from my YouTube subscribers and Facebook fans. So, I'm proud to announce.....I've been busy working on a new video tutorial and e-pattern for tutu skirts and dresses!

Here is one of my tutu skirts on my new model, Anaya! 
I had to borrow a friend's daughter since we have a boy.  I did try it on my son but my husband just about fell off the couch when he saw him so I knew I had to find a new model. oops!  

Here is a sample halter tutu dress.  I'm still working on some measurements and widths of elastic, etc.  I want to make sure I like everything about it before finalizing the video tutorial and e-pattern. 

Both patterns will include charts for fabric/notions, cutting and final tutu skirts and dresses for sizes newborn to size 10.  

Stay tuned!
