What's new...

I've been working on a new quilt for a while now. It's nowhere near ready for publication so I can't show the whole quilt top here, but I can show a bit of it! Think of this as a bite o' cake rather than a whole piece o' cake.

Love the orange polka dot fabric. Do you have any favorite stores where you shop or do you just pick up fabric wherever you travel?

LOL! A bite of cake! That's funny! They way it looks, I think I would like to have the whole cake (and eat it too!!!)
I am very excited about your upcoming book, you always make such beautiful quilts! And my 4 year old daughter wants me to "read" the bookks to her. Especially "Covered with Love" That's her favourite :-)

Just this morning I was debating washing some new fabric or not. I was reading some blogs and followed Quilting Fiesta's link to your post talking about washing. So thanks for the advice. Sometimes I wash, sometimes not - depending on how lazy I'm being. But I think I'll wash from now on. Also having grown up near Balto I appreciated those pictures. And I wish I could get my husband to sew on bindings - lucky you!

Have been resisting curves...think this might be the time to take a chance on them!

In answer to the shopping question... I shop a lot at the Quilt Asylum in McKinney, TX. It has great fabric and is close-ish. I also buy fabric when I'm on the road teaching. In fact, I picked up some Japanese shot cottons from a vendor at the Quilter's Gathering in NH just this past weekend. I've washed them they are in a pile looking at me. They want to be used soon, I can tell.
