The new patterns are almost ready to release! The photographer will be here Tuesday! I thought you might want to see some more images from A Gardener's Alphabet.
I have to admit... I've sort of fallen in love with this quilt and I've chosen my very favorite blocks....P (poppies), Q (queen ann's lace), M (morning glory - heavenly blues of course!), G (grapes), and K (kohlrabi....YES KOHLRABI!)
Oh yeah....and R (wild roses), and S (Spring & Summer...with appleblossoms and apples)
I'm kind of fond of the berries too.....B
The only problem is.... this pattern was just too big! (not the quilt.... the actual pattern!)
So I decided to split it up...two blocks to a pattern... and present it as a block of the month!
This way, there'll be big, color pictures of the blocks on the pattern covers and that will help everybody with their color tinting!
There will also be two Easter patterns... a pillowcase called "Here Comes Peter Cottontail", and one called "All My Eggs In One Basket". Also there will be "Hedgerow Wreath"... a flower wreath that you can put a monogram in the center of.... "Sweet Violette", a pillow with a bouquet of violets on the front....and a little Valentine (yes, I know it's a little late!LOL!!!) Called "Crazy Love".
There'll be many more new designs coming out in May at International Quilt Market in Kansas City too!........along with my new fabric line from Lecien.......nope, no hints or sneak peeks!
I should let you know too, that the October and June 2013 retreats are full. There are a few places left in the December retreat and several in the March one. BOY they filled up quickly!!!! I can't wait to meet everybody that signed up!!
Well....suppose I'd better get back to writing patterns!
Thanks for a great 2011!
