Publishing Quilting Modern has been quite an endeavor and it’s time to celebrate!
Jacquie and I weren’t much for the idea of a traditional blog tour that stretches out forever and you hear the same thing over and over, so we opted for something a little different. Each of you have been a part of our journey and we’d like to celebrate with our blog friends, so we’re having a virtual party and you are invited!
We’re calling it the ‘Quilting Modern Blog Blast!” A team of talented sewers and quilters are attending and we hope you’ll join in. You’ll find out all the details next week, so for now mark your calendars for June 1 – 3 as party time!
The party starts Friday, June 1 with tours of Jacquie’s and my studios and continues all weekend. So for now, save the date, stock up on your favorite beverages and snacks. Attire is casual…I’ll be wearing what my husband refers to as my ‘uniform’ and I’m thinking balloons and confetti poppers might be required at my house.
With the exhibit up at Island Quilter and a few book signings behind me I’m enjoying a little downtime to party with the techniques from the book and reinvent/remake the quilts.
I remade ‘Shattered‘ using the ‘slice and insert’ technique.
I’ve played with mixing the ‘Fractured’ and ‘Swirling Medallion’ quilts to come up with ‘Psychedelic Baby.’
I inserted blocks that I designed using the crazy piecing technique into the design layout of the ‘Tunnel Vision’ quilt.
I hope you get some time to play with the techniques too and that next weekend you can take some time to sew and join the party!
