Spring Market

I recently returned from Quilt Market in Kansas City! It was a whirlwind, exhausting, and lots of fun. The "Recombobulation Area" in the Milwaukee airport helped a little, but discombobulation still abounds.

There were, of course, tons of new fabric lines and patterns to see. Many of them will be making their way to the shop soon and in the upcoming months. It's so hard when you fall in love with a fabric at Quilt Market, but it doesn't arrive until September or October!

I'll be posting pictures and updates from Quilt Market so check back soon!

Lotta Jansdotter’s Echo in the Shop

I finally got my shipment of Echo by Lotta Jansdotter. It seems like everyone else has had theirs forever. I’m SO excited to have this collection. I just love it. It has a beautiful contemporary simplicity with only one color per piece.

I’ve been really racking my brain trying to figure out a quilt setting that I want to put these fabrics in. I want something very simple to feature the fabrics, but that is still dynamic and not just patchwork squares. I still haven’t come up with anything, but you’ll be the first to see it when I do.

Jump on over to the shop to buy some of Lotta’s beautiful fabrics!

Quilt camp updates

Peeps, it's TOO HARD to blog from an iPhone. The format & pics get all screwy. Tweeting is easier. Check out my twitter page or Facebook (tweets are being posted there also) for quilt camp updates. Links to both are on the right hand side of the blog.

Quilt camp!

The first completed project of quilt camp - a blinged mug rug. I have actually done other things, but this is the first done to completion. Back to the sewing machine (after a layover at the snack table).

I'm heading up to beautiful Door County, Wisconsin for a semi-annual quilt retreat that I've been doing forever. So any new orders placed starting right NOW will be shipped on Monday. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'll try to post pics from the retreat, but don't hold your breath just in case I'm having to much fun or am too sleep deprived to remember.

Pincushion Swap

I made a cute little pincushion for a swap partner on Flickr. I really like the way it turned out. I may need to make another one for myself.

World Domination

Well, not quite yet, but I’m trying.

My husband bought two huge vinyl maps & arrow stickers for me. This way, I can put an arrow sticker on the map for every order & have a cool visual of where my orders are being shipped.

You guys, I’m not kidding when I say they are huge. Each one is 36 inches by 50 inches. They’re like huge wall stickers. There’s only one wall in both my sewing room and fabric room where I had enough space to hang them. I suppose he really wants me to be successful at this & take over the world & need lots and lots of space for the little arrow stickers.

You can’t see the arrow stickers in the pics above, but they’re there. I only put one arrow per location even if there has been more than one shipment per location. I’ve sent orders to 33 states, 5 countries, and 4 continents. The most popular state is Wisconsin. That’s where I’m located.


Internationally, I’ve sent a few orders to the UK, and a half dozen to the east coast of Australia.

I even had one order go to Sri Lanka.


But Canada has been the most popular international location. And the ONLY place in Canada I’ve sent orders to is Victoria, British Columbia. In fact, Victoria is not only the most popular international location, but the most popular city worldwide with the most individual orders. I’ve sent over a dozen orders to Victoria.


Only 17 states, 192 countries, and 3 continents left to go…
