Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. It’s been a busy few weeks! Seattle gets so excited for summer that every evening/weekend has multiple events going on, so I’ve barely been home. I also spent a few days in Tucson 2 weekends ago, so it’s been a little crazy. However, this past weekend, I did force myself to stay home for a little bit and sew. This is Block 4 of Star Gazing. It’s a big block – 24″. What’s cool about it is that it’s all made with regular piecing, no paper piecing. Every time that I thought about needing to make it, I kept thinking it was one of the 2 PP blocks. Though Block 5, which is next, is one of the PP ones. PP isn’t my favorite activity in the world. At all.

While in Tucson, I met with Swan to discuss some Bella Girl business. We’re planning to release this pattern to quilt shops in the next month or so. I also saw the versions that she and Kathie have made (sorry, no pictures yet, but the quilts do exist). We also tentatively decided that we are going to launch our Quilt-Along in January 2016 using Star in the West/10 Shades. There will be more information on that as we get closer to the end of the year, but look out for that.

I promise less time between my next update!
