Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are ready for a great week of quilting fun. I know that I am! Last week was a week of problems at our house. Tension issues with Freddy that took almost 3 days to fix, wavy borders on a client quilt that needed special care, hubby’s truck died and went to truck heaven (hey, it was 23 years old!), and my car broke down and needed towed to the dealership. All in all, NOT a fun week.

This week will be way better, fingers crossed!

I’ve got a bit of exciting news.  Last month I received an invitation to speak at one of the local quilt guilds on the topic of pattern design at their July meeting. The president of the guild saw my quilts hanging at the local quilt shop and gave me a call. It was so unexpected to get that phone call!

I don’t usually have a problem speaking in front of groups, but I prefer to sit back and let others do the talking. So I’m just a tad bit nervous. The meeting is this evening, so for the last few days I’ve been gathering up my quilts and making notes on what I want to say. The presentation has been my main focus this past week, and I’m super excited to meet more local quilters. This is definitely my crush this week!

I also have a new pattern coming out later in the week and I’ll share more about that in a few days. The layout of the written pattern has a new look and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Since I don’t have any of my own pretty pictures to share today, let’s take a look at a few of the projects you linked up last week. I was so impressed with everything you are working on!

Jen of de Jong Dream House shared the process behind her Celtic Midnight quilt. It was very interesting to read how she designed her quilt and about the inspiration behind the design.

Tanya of Tanya Quilts in Colorado has been playing with a pair of flamingos – Flo & Freddy. They are so freaking cute! I love this little quilt and the way she quilted it. This is one I’d love to see in person – check it out!

And last, but not least, Yanicka of Finding Myself as an Artist shared the progress she is making on her quilt “Wolf”. I am enjoying watching her put together her wolf quilt and am looking forward to seeing it finished.
