100Days100Blocks2018

If you don’t follow me on Instagram – you should, by the way 😉  – then you might not be aware of the #100Days100Blocks2018 Sew-A-Long going on right now. My friend, Angie, over at Gnome Angel, is the woman in charge and you can find all the pertinent information here.

Basically, it’s a 100 Day sew-a-long making all 100 blocks from Tula Pink’s City Sampler book. You will need to book to participate but I can tell you that the instructions are easy to follow and the blocks go together very quickly. It’s a GREAT way to build some skills if you are a beginner and a fun quilt to make for quilters of all ages. Besides, it’s a block a day. You can handle that, right?

I made Block 54 – you can read about that here. Online, you can search using the hashtag #100Days100Blocks2018 to see what quilters around the world are making. It’s been fun to see all the blocks people are making.

You’ll have to follow the appropriate people to win – there are daily prizes and larger sponsors. I’m giving away a copy of my book!

And, between now and the end of the sew-a-long I am offering 20% off at my store using coupon code 100Days100Blocks2018.

News(letter) from the Nook

It’s been a while since I sent out any news. A long while, actually, so I’m going to hit the high points with a revamped newsletter. I hope you like it. Many of you already know the following because social media is great. If not, enjoy.

My book, Piecing Makevoer, SOLD OUT, y’all!!! C&T printed more and you can get a personalized, signed copy on my website.

After years of people asking, I finally took the plunge and have started to release patterns. I only have a few right now, but I’ll slowly add more. You can find the patterns here.

I traveled to Denver, Colorado in March to tape and episode of The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. It was SO. MUCH. FUN!!! The episode will premier in late August. 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.

Last but not least: I’m going to be participating in Gnome Angel’s 100Blocks100Days sew along. It begins 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!

Happy Piecing!
