Here is a Sneak Peek at
Heart & Soul Sisters
Jamie will be working a booth at Quilt Market showing off her latest line of fabric and demonstrating her design process. You really do have to pop over to her blog to see some of the wonderful things she is doing with her fabric. Quilts, paper doll play time, and especially the SHOES!!!!
And of course because it is Jamie, the rebel quilter, who’s work very often has zippers in odd places I chose to pull a few colorful zips out of the shoebox that has been taking up space in my studio for ages. Perfect use for them! (Thanks to Sue Bleiweiss for the idea!)
Now can I just share something for a minute? Let me tell you how quilting is good for my family. It’s good for my soul. I have a teenager. A very intelligent teenager that hates to do things that are hard – like major school projects. Said teenager hasn’t quite figured out that ignoring hard stuff doesn’t make it go away and we had, shall we say, a difficult time last night. Even though I was running very, very short on sleep I had to stay up late shepherding this recalcitrant teenager through an overdue assignment. If I didn’t have a project to work on while repeating the mantra “do the work, do the work, do the work” every two minutes I think one or the other of us might. not. have. survived. the. night…
yes my friends.
Quilting saves lives!
