Stitching Lines is proving to be very popular. As word gets out, I am getting more and more orders. I am thrilled that quilters think my idea is a good one. Drawing the line on the back of squares over and over was always such a pain. Not until I introduced my Stitching Lines, did I realize that so many other quilters had the same complaint. I am looking forward to growing my business and showing quilters that there is a better and faster method available.

I'd say the South Bay Quilter's Guild Quilt Show this past weekend was a success. Although the guild members said that attendance was lower this year, I would say the show was a success for me. I demonstrated "Stitching Lines" for two days and they were received quite well. Saturday was much better than Sunday, which was almost a bust. But all in all, I was happy with the show. Next show will be in June in Santa Monica. Two lovely ladies came by my booth and told me that I had been accepted into their show.

I am excited to add two new products to my website......................ahhhhhh, Andy added them for me! I have finally finished Split Medallion. I love this quilt. It has been super easy to make and I love the look of circular objects without sewing a curved line. Amie Potter quilted this lap size. She "saw" exactly what I "saw"...................the circles and the diamond shapes. It is so great to send a quilt off to a quilter and have it come back better than before. Thank you Amie!
I have also developed a new product I call Stitching Lines. I have always found the chore of drawing diagonal lines on the backs side of squares to be tedious and time consuming. Stitching Lines eliminates that step in quiltmaking. I spent a lot of time finding the right paper. With other products, the paper does not always peel away easily. The paper I use peels away quick and easy without little tiny pieces stuck in the stitching line.

I have started a new Free Block of the Month (or thereabouts) I am calling it Computer Desk. It might be silly, but I am having fun with it. My son will hopefully have it up on my website early this week. When it is all done, I am going to hang it up in my loft where I have my office. I have even put a couple of photos of Tess on the screen! Some of the pieces will be small, but all will be doable.
(Is that a word?) Look for a nice wood grain fabric for the cabinet, either dark of light. And I picked a dark brown swirl print for the interior. The rest of the fabrics will just come from my stash. Join me this year in making Computer Desk.
