McCall's Quilting Magazine

Do you have your copy yet?  Here is what the cover looks like - make sure you get a copy of your own - it's the November/December 2015 issue!  It is just hitting mailboxes now for subscribers, and should be in the stores in a week or two.  I am lucky enough to be included in this one - my jewelry is in the "Fresh Picks" section!

We've been busy with orders already and are also getting ready for our next show, which is just a few short days away.  If you are nearby, I hope you come to the show!  Here is the info on that again...

Hawkeye Heritage Quilt Show

Friday, September 25th - 9:00 - 4:00
Saturday, September 26th - 9:00 - 4:00

U.S. Army Reserve Center
Des Moines County Hwy 79
Middletown, IA 

Of course we will have lots of our jewelry there and also plenty of fun socks!

I've also been really busy stitching and trying to get a few things out of the UFO pile and into the FINISHED pile!  This is a quilt that I made years ago but thought I would hand quilt it.  Then I had a reality check and took it to the machine quilter!  Binding is on and it is DONE!

I thought this picture of Boomer and Bailey was cute.  Bailey was actually being calm (a rare occurrence) and sitting still for a little while!
Back to work for me - hope you are having a great Monday!!


  1. Congrats on another magazine appearance!
    Those socks must make for happy feet--they are so fun.
    A finished quilt--wonderful! Is each block center made from a different toile fabric? I'll bet that is fun to study.

  2. love your dog photo - what a cute pair! congrats on having your jewelry in the magazine, I hope it brings you lots of orders!
    wonderful quilt finish!

  3. I may have squealed when I saw your work in the magazine! Yay for you!!!
