Last November, I was able to spend some time with Rosa Rojas at the Pinwheels Quilt Show in Sturbridge, MA. Rosa is a native of Spain, but travels frequently to the US, Mexico and France to promote her Apliquick techniques and products.

There is still time to enter the Newsletter Name contest and win this great prize!! I plan to send out more frequent newsletters with more useful tips and techniques for applique. The newsletter will be getting a new format, new features such as our Applique Tip of the Week, and a new name!
You can help me come up with a creative new quilty name for my newsletter If you play along, you will be entered into a drawing for a 10 yard pack of Mistyfuse® (7 yards white, 3 yards black) and this beautiful Jelly Roll from Benartex called Tie Dye Batiks.
I was at Genesee Valley Quilt Fest recently, and seeing many of my favorite customers who have all my tools. Everyone enjoys watching the demonstration and a good percentage of customers go home with at least one template, if not all seven. Yet at the shows I often hear "I have not yet removed the shrink wrap!" That makes me sad! I invented these tools to help you be more productive and creative. So how do I get my customers to use the tools they have purchased?
I am happy to announce my first ever Appliqué Design Challenge. You know how much I love Mistyfuse and FreeSpirit fabrics so I'm excited to have them as co-sponsors. Your challenge is to create an original quilt design using any appliqué elements that you can cut with my Leaves Galore and/or Hearts and More templates. All designers will start with one of four Cameo panels by Kaffe Fassett for FreeSpirit. Your final quilt will be 30" x 30" which gives you space to create your own design of applique elements around the Cameo panel.
Two exciting things are happening with Hearts and More this week. First, Generation Q magazine is blogging about and having a contest to win my book and a small set of Hearts and More tools and a copy of my new book! They have asked readers to comment on what you would write on the hearts in this sweet little Conversation Hearts quilt! In the comments below, I will put a link to the Generation Q contest so you can go, write a sweet saying, and win a copy of my book and tools!
