First, I am so excited to be a guest on American Patchwork and Quilting Radio podcast  hosted by the one and only Pat Sloan. My segment will air on September 21st, 2015 but go ahead and tune in now, look at the archives and hear your favorite quilters and designers who have already been on.

My quilts were traveling this Summer with the amazing Terri Sontra from Purple Moose Designs. They went to quilt shows in Maine and Syracuse, New York and the patterns were very well received. Yay! Thank you Terri for taking such good care of my “babies.” 🙂

Looking ahead to expand my Summercrafter business I always thought a retreat would be just the thing. Because I don’t really have any quilting buddies, my five year plan includes a little quilting R&R right here in Florida.

 I think it would be a great time to meet and sew with new friends, enjoy the beautiful Florida coast sunsets and shelling and do a little quilt shop hopping. So I’ll keep you posted as plans come to fruition.

I have really been looking forward to the swaps I joined on Instagram. The first one that needs to be completed and done by next week is the Beach Bound Mini Quilt Swap. This was my mosaic. I love waves and beach and the clean relaxed look. My partner has similar taste, I’ll be posting details of the one I am making for her, I even made my first Dresden block! Swaps are a great way to meet more quilty folks, I am hooked!
