Book Signing Report


We had a great time meeting quilters in Southern Arizona last week.  I say we because my baby got to come along.  She loves people talking to her, so she did well.  See the quilt behind me — there’s a preview of one of the patterns in my next book.  It isn’t even bound yet!   

One highlight was meeting this quilter (whose name I didn’t write down quick enough — sorry! — I’m pretty sure it started with J).  She brought a quilt she had made from my Simply Charming Collection book.  I love seeing what people have made from my patterns!  She also gave me a couple great suggestions that I will be implementing in my next book.     
Thanks to the Squirrel’s Nest for having me!  I love meeting fellow quilters.  (And –who would’ve guessed — they have a great selection of oriental fabric at the Squirrel’s Nest so you know I came home with some!)

    Both the quilt behind you and the quilt “J” is holding are wonderful. But most wonderful of all is your Little One…too darling.

    You know you have a great job when you can bring the baby along and everyone loves it. Quilters love babies! Thanks for organizing the jelly roll project. I have never used pre-cut fabric. Wow, these things almost sew themselves!

    Your baby looks SO sweet there. She certainly is being exposed to the world of quilting at a young age!!! LOL
