Quilting Florida and packing for a SewDown.

I’m getting the final pieces together for my (very soon) exhibit at Bok Tower–it opens Saturday–and will include a few images (like the one above) from my upcoming book.

After posting this pic while gathering quilts, I got pretty excited to see some local folks showing interest in the show. So, I’d really like to plan a day for whoever is available and interested to meet up. I was thinking that we can check out the show and then wander around the gardens…chat…maybe bring some handwork or something to sit and work on in a shady spot…anyone with me? The show runs until June 4th, and I’ll throw out 2 potential dates. If you are interested, comment on your preference and we’ll go with the one that seems to suit most people. How about April 26th or May 24th? Both are Saturdays.



Anyways, here are some more sneaks from my book that will be on display at the Bok show…

Otherwise, I need to get to packing. SewDown Nashville is finally here, and I’m leaving tomorrow. Can’t wait to teach and to enjoy some good, quality time at the sewing machine with new and old friends. If you aren’t able to make it, I’m sure the IG feeds (mine included) will be blowing up with activity.

    The book does look exciting! To far for me to come (!) but it sounds wonderful to meet up and stitch. Enjoying your IG feed too.

    I’m a little late weighing in, but the May date works better for me. Excited to see your exhibit. I had a great time in your Sewdown class!

    Love your quilts! Yes, would love to meet up at Bok Tower Gardens – either date works for me.

    May 24th for me! I’ve never met up with real live modern quilters before…meep!
