The winner of Fast, Flirty, and Fun is Linda Zobrist! Congratulations! Linda tells me that she’s new to applique and just finished her first class, and has so much that she wants to make. Very cool. Welcome to another appliqué enthusiast!

Now for some odds and ends of a varying and diverse nature, in no particular order.

In December, blogger Violette Severin published an interview with me as part of a series of articles about quilters who blog. If you’d like to read a little bit more about moi, click on over!

Adel Quilting & Dry Goods in Adel, Iowa, is running a teapots BOM with my Teapots 2 to Appliqué. Click over to their blog and scroll down the right-hand sidebar to see some very cute teapots. You’ll also see lots of other yummy projects and some recipes!

Two quilt shows are coming right up in northern California. I’ll be at both of these in my cozy little booth.

Sidebar: Now if you’re not in that thin green strip of the weather map that shows highs in the 50s, my sympathies go out to you. I feel your pain. I went to college in Boulder, Colorado, and also lived in central Ohio for a few years. Lots of snow, and I remember driving home from a meeting of my small quilt group and it was 30 below. My stick shift didn’t want to shift.

San Francisco Quilters’ Guild Show, February 26-27, 2011

“Symphony of Color” is this year’s theme. The featured artists are Marcia Stein and Janet Mednick. The show takes place at the Concourse Exhibition Center. Check out all the information at www.sfquiltersguild.org.

Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association Show, March 5-6, 2011

The SCVQA holds a beautiful show every other year. The Santa Clara Convention Center is the same venue as PIQF so it’s a great space for a quilt show! Check out all the details at www.scvqa.org.

Until next time,
