Please contact Sew to Speak to get signed up! I am in my first block bee this year with The Columbus Modern Quilters. In January our queen selected the Wanta Fanta block, and I was thrilled by how quickly it went together.
This month we are making the same block for another queen, and I am even more excited to see how both of these quilts go together. February was my month, and everyone made a filmstrip block that I will be incorporating into a border of a medallion quilt. My February goal came with an added bonus: when names were drawn from the completion link-up, mine was selected! What makes this project even better is that all of the blocks created for this blog hop are collected by our hosts to make into some gorgeous charity quilts.
For the first time I have a quilt design making an appearance in the pattern section of a magazine. November really flew by this year, particularly with the deadline for QuiltCon entries looming at the end of it! Here is an overview of the projects that have been happening in the last few weeks. Thank you for all of your work in hosting this fantastic event! Each time I discover even more talented people to follow.

This time around I was ecstatic to receive the prize for the Mini Quilt Category. My quilt actually came in second, but the first place winner had already received a larger prize, so the quilty love was spread around. I am so excited to start creating with all of these amazing products. Actually I have already used some of the fabric!
Thank you, Moda! My entries were similar to both shows, and I will be writing more in depth posts about each quilt in the coming weeks. Two of my QuiltCon entries were made specifically for challenges. The first is the Michael Miller Challenge quilt.

The other challenge quilt was for the EZ Quilting triangle challenge. My third QuiltCon entry was based on a mini quilt that I made earlier this year. It was machine pieced and matchstick quilted on my domestic machine. This quilt was a fairly last minute addition to my entries. It is a block based, machine pieced quilt finished with an edge to edge computerized quilt design that I designed using AutoCad. This is definitely a representation of an object, but it is also well outside the box for the types of quilts typically entered in this division.
The final entry for QuiltCon is one of my favorite mini quilts and it went into the small quilt category. It is also entered into the miniature quilt category for AQS. I have also finally set up a business Facebook page. I hope you will like and follow along with me there, too.
The link is also available toward the top right of this page. I hope you have had a wonderful November and are enjoying the rest of the upcoming holidays! I am looking forward to checking more projects off my WIP list this month and catching up on blog reading as well!

I started the year with a Day project which culminated in Resonance. Aurifil liked it so much they displayed it in their booth at Spring Quilt Market. Later in the year, I became an Aurifil Artisan!
