First up, I'm preparing a tutorial for my Framed Nine Patch quilt. I'll post part 1 on Wednesday Apr. 6, and part 2 on the 13th. Part 1 will cover fabric selection, cutting, and making the starter blocks. Part 2 will cover cutting up the starter blocks, rearranging the parts into nine-patch blocks, and adding optional borders. I hope you'll join me!

Another priority for me this week is to make new Cut and Shuffle Quilts block samples for Paducah. I'll be demonstrating my Block Mama method in the AQS Author Demo booth on Thursday from 4-6 pm and on Saturday from 10 am-noon. If you're going to Paducah, please come say hello - I'd love to meet my readers!
And not quilt related, but still sewing fun, I'm making doll clothes. My SIL has been encouraging me to check out the toys, etc. at the local Goodwill store. So I went last week, and although they didn't have anything I wanted for grandson CJ, I did find a doll I couldn't resist. She's an 18" doll similar to American Girl, in excellent condition, never played with, but no clothes or shoes. $4. I'll make clothes and accessories for her and give her to my great niece for Christmas. Isn't she pretty?!
