Woohooo..I got a post. Thank you May! My first one!

Here is a picture of a Cathedral Window quilt I have made. Its kind of in the shadows as it is hanging on a branch of an ancient oak tree. I am trying to come up with a nice picture to put on the front of my pattern. Not sure if this can be lightened up or not, but I love the outdoor look. What do you think?

I have been invited to conduct a workshop on my technique for making Cathedral Window quilts and am both excited and nervous. The workshop is not until October, so I have lots of time to fret about it.

Here's a close up of the quilt. My pattern shows how to do all the foundation sewing on the machine - including sewing the tabs down before you sew in the colorful patches in the "window".

I am currently working on a couple of applique border quilts and a New York Beauty quilt that I call Christmas Beauty because it is in Christmas colors. I have always wanted a special quilt just for Christmas. I am going to a quilters retreat at the end of this month and plan to work on the Christmas Beauty at retreat. I already have my project bag packed with the blocks arcs that I have already made and all the other block pieces. Can you tell I am excited?

Have a good day everyone!
