Progress...

Nothing to show on my design wall today...

Last week I finished Big Print Beauty, which you can see in the post below. Tomorrow I'm speaking to H&H in O'Fallon IL about working with large scale prints.

Book progress is coming along adequately. Singing the Blues is in the piecing progress, and it will be ready to go to the longarmer later this week. 
Labyrinth is completely done except for the sleeve. Zen Garden is at the longarmer. After talking with my editor last month, I don't have to remake Positivity after all (AQS had suggested a fabric collection that's so not my taste) so Positivity is already done. That leaves Luminosity up next, and I'm working on collecting the fabrics for it.
All the book quilts require sleeves, so I bought muslin, which I am not counting for the stash report. I'll make one continuous length of sleeve according to AQS's specifications, and cut it to length as needed for each quilt.
This month I have to deal with the "About the Author" blurb and get a photograph taken. Ugh! My plan is to have everything for the book finished and written, double checked for accuracy, proofread, etc., before I go to Paducah in April. That leaves me two weeks after I get back from Paducah to deal with file management according to AQS's very specific requirements.
I'm satisfied with book progress so far but I still have a lot of work to do so I have to stay on track.

Unfortunately the blog is suffering from starvation while I work on the book. Hang in there with me and I'll have pretties to show on the blog sooner or later!

Linking up today with Judy at Patchwork Times, even though I don't have anything to show.  Thank you, Judy, for the opportunity to link up and benefit from visits by your readers!
