A Pink Christmas

I owe you all at least 10 new posts and I haven’t forgotten about you.  I’m keeping a list of things to tell you so I don’t forget.  I’ve been working like crazy on new things for quilt market, and that’s why I’ve been so quiet.

For now, I have to tell you about the Moda designers new book with Martingale!  It’s called “Moda All-Stars Mini Marvels” and it gets released today! Here’s my quilt called “A Pink Christmas”. If you love wool applique combined with fabric this mini quilt is fun to make. The instructions are in the book! We’ll have some books and kits for this little mini available in November.  I’ll give you advance notice I promise.  

If you love mini making mini quilts you will love this new book!  If you’re coming to quilt market, don’t miss the Martingale schoolhouse.  We’ll be “parading” our quilts from the book.

Back soon,




The world of applique just got more exciting because Aurifil is introducing a new 80 wt. thread at Fall Quilt Market!   Can you imagine a thread from Aurifil intended specifically for applique?  I’ve had the exciting task of testing this thread and I actually used it to stitch my bunny block for The Splendid Sampler.  I’m in love with it!

I used it for some English Paper Piecing and loved it even more.  With color and quality as only Aurifil can do, this 80wt. thread is the perfect companion for applique.   It stitches like a dream.  They’re going to start with a selection of 88 colors!

 There’s only one place you can buy this thread before market.  It’s available from my friend Kimberly over at The Fat Quarter Shop!  She has 36 of the colors available now, in six collections. Over the next few months she’ll be telling you about each one.  It’s an applique event you don’t want to miss.
