180 Doodle Quilting Designs

Good Morning, Quilters!

I’m back at my desk (and my sewing machine) after two wonderful weeks with Baby Louis–my new grandson!  So grateful to my daughter, Claire and her husband, Andy for sharing this time with me!

When I arrived at home…a box of books!!!

Four of my doodle designs were chosen for 180 Doodle Quilting Designs by Karen Burns (Martingale)

BTW-Martingale is publishing my book of designs (in Tuesday Tutorial style with step-by-step photos) Spring, 2017!

180 Doodle Quilting DesignsThe book (printed on my favorite glossy book paper) contains designs by nine quilters including Karen Burns, Angela Walters, Christa Watson and YOU-Know-Who!!

Each design is offered in three formats:  for a square block, a triangle block and for a border.   I just know you’re going to LOVE this book!

Buy it from your local quilt shop or use my Amazon Affiliate link—HERE

IN OTHER BOOK NEWS….

My book is in the works–all the tutorials are stitched (I had to re-stitch every tutorial so they’d be color-coordinated.)

I’ve been working with the editors to get all the copy and captions written and next week they start taking the real photos and doing layout!!

It’s SO COOL to be published!

I’m off to the post office….mailing copies to my Mom and Sisters….

Then to my sewing machine…I can’t wait to test drive the motifs in 180 Doodle Quilting Designs!

LOTS MORE QUILTING ALL WEEK!

May YOUR day be filled with creativity!

Open Line Friday–Mysteries…

Mystery Books

 

Good Morning, Quilters!

I’d like to take a minute to welcome all of you who have joined us from QuiltViews.  We are thrilled to have you join us.  Thank you to Ann for the “shout-out”.   Make sure you sign up for this great newsletter-tips, techniques, and ideas from American Quilter Society.

Today is OPEN LINE FRIDAY….

We reserve Fridays for Questions…Anyone can ask…EVERYONE answers!  There are  more than 6000 of us with all kinds of quilting experience.  If you have a question, chances are, someone else does, too…and chances are someone in the group will have the answer.

Mystery Books

SEARCHES

I frequently get questions about how to find a previous post.  I don’t mind answering those questions–usually I can put my mouse on it in just a few clicks…but you may find it faster by using the “search” function in the sidebar. (If you are reading this on an iPhone, the “search” function may be at the end of the post.)

I recently had a question about choosing a Needle.  I usually recommend free motion quilting with a Topstitch 80 or 90 depending on your thread weight.  Topstitch needles have a slightly rounded Sharp tip, a large eye and  a deep groove for the thread.  For more about threads, you might like:  How to Choose a Needle for Free Motion Quilting .

Mystery Books

MYSTERY

I hope you are all enjoying our Mystery Quilt-a-Long as much as I am….

What about YOU?  Do you enjoy (non-quilting) mysteries? How many of the Top 100 have you read? Do you have any books or movies to recommend?

I am currently reading The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey.  It’s listed as one of the best mystery books of all time.

We’d love to hear YOUR recommendations…

Also, if you have any questions…

We’d LOVE to help…

Signed,
