Just finished up a hand appliqué project for the November/December issue of Quiltmaker. Whew! It’s always a load off my mind when I get to the end of this type of assignment. And yes, they really do work this far ahead.

It’s a really cute piece. Kind of holiday-y but also very much in the red-and-green appliqué tradition. The article will include back-basting, so be on the lookout for it.

Next weekend I’m driving up to Santa Rosa, California, for the Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County show. That’s wine country! Dana tells me that we drove past on a trip that we took one time to Napa, but this will be the first time I’ve really been in Santa Rosa. I’m really looking forward to it. That’s one of the great things about being a traveling quilt-show vendor… I’m getting to explore lots of cool places in this wonderful state.

The featured quilter is the one and only Judy Mathieson!!

Judy is known for her extraordinary Mariner’s Compass quilts. She’s also a dog person so she’s all right in my book :).

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie
