News(letter) from the Nook Aug. 2018

Can you believe it’s the middle of AUGUST already? Bananas! It’s muggy and hot in Atlanta so I’m happily staying inside, continuing to get my house in order post-renovation and grateful that my kids are already in school so I don’t have to entertain them in this heat. And, yes, we go to school so. early. here; BUT we have lots of breaks, so there’s that. I guess. And also yes, I’d like to retire in the mountains one day.

I have a few things happening in the next few weeks.

The lovely ladies over at Create Whimsy recently reached out to ask if they could spotlight me on their site. Of course!!! The interview will be live today. It’s a Q&A and you can read about it here. It was fun to reply to the questions. If I answered, or partially answered something and you want me to expand, please drop me a line. I’m happy to  – I didn’t want to drone on and on and bore people.

My episode on The Quilt Show airs on August 26th. If you are a member at www.thequiltshow.com you’ll have access to the episode as soon as it airs. If not, though the site is FULL of valuable information so you should (hint, hint), don’t worry – you’ll be able to see it a few weeks later. You can read about the upcoming episode here.

At the end of taping, we took some photos (this one is courtesy of The Quilt Show). Here’s a fun out take…

I’m participating in Gnome Angel’s 100Blocks100Days sew along. It began July 7th and will end on October 14th. Angie has ALL the rules on her website (www.gnomeangel.com) or you can click here and get right to it.

I’ll be making block 54 and will share all my tips and tricks on August 29th. I’m excited to participate in this fun sew along and hope you will consider participating. There are a lot of talented quilters and sponsors this year, and I KNOW it’ll be great!

I’ll be teaching a Machine Piecing Hexagons class at Intown Quilters on September 16th.

You can sign up here. If you’ve been wanting to learn this technique, this is a great class. I’ll go over several cutting methods and a give you a LOT of hints and help you troubleshoot.

I’m hoping to add another pattern to my store in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for that, too.

Happy Piecing!
