Sue, Donna, and Linda Gosselin, a SPD Certified Instructor, belong to Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild and we recently revealed our 2016 Challenges. The theme for challenge was "modern". To participate, we purchased a bag that contained two fat quarters and two crayons. We had to use both the fabrics in the bag but could add four additional fabrics as long as they matched the colors of the crayons. The fat quarters were a Kona white and a gray fabric with some circles and helped unify the finished pieces.
Who else is going to AQS Quilt Week in Syracuse? Joanne and I will be in booth # 1821 with all our Sue Pelland Designs products. We do demos all day long so stop by and learn about the Leaves Galore and Hearts and More templates. Even if you’ve seen our demos before, we are always adding new tips and techniques to our talk so it is worth a stop.
The new website is online today, my new book has arrived and we are heading to Paducah in the wee hours of the morning. With so much going on, there are bound to be a few snags. Please be patient this week as we get out all the book orders and break in our new shop.
When you buy anything from my website between now and April 30th, you will receive a free pattern for a quilt block. You will also be entered into a grand prize drawing for one each of all my quilt patterns, with a combined value of over $150!
Friday arrives and it’s SHOPPING DAY! Armed with my lists, my good intentions and my credit cards, I am off to the shops to find all the bins, baskets, and labels I need to make my sewing room livable again. Then off to the fun stuff, the fabric store where I stock up on my list of fabrics and notions. I try not to stray too far from the list. The eye candy on the shelves can stay on those shelves unless it is going to help me finish my PHDs, my Projects that are Half Done!

I have the worst “Deadline to Finish” ratio in the entire quilting world. I am still working on the Hearts and More book, and it has been at least 18 months in the making. While writing the book, I have neglected my blog so today, I’m going to walk you though MY creative writing process. Emphasis on “creative”, and not so much on “writing”!
