The winner of my 100 Blocks Volume 9 drawing was No. 134, Marta!

Thanks so much to all of you who stopped by on the blog tour. If you didn’t win a copy of the new issue and you’re wanting one, I have them in stock now on my website, on the Patterns page.

I also have a few copies left of Volume 8, if that’s one’s still missing from your collection.

Following closely on the heels of the 100 Blocks blog tour was our monthly book feature and giveaway. The reader who came up the winner of Rami Kim’s book was No. 5, Dot. Congratulations! Dot says her son-in-law is of Korean ancestry and she’s interested in learning more about Korean art. Very cool!

In other news, I am so happy to say that my husband Dana and I are coming up on our 25th wedding anniversary on May 19! We’re going to Hawaii for a week, to Hilo on the Big Island.

I’ve done some investigating of quilt shops, but I could always use a little inside info! Any recommendations???

    A few years ago when we visited the Big Island we had dinner at Volcano’s Lava Rock Cafe near Hawaii’s Volcano National Park. There was a quilt shop near the restaurant, but we were unable to make it during the day when it was opened. I would highly recommend visiting the volcano’s at night to see the glow from the crater. Have a great time, it is a very beautiful island.

    This is from an older list so I’m not sure how accurate it is. Some of the shops are in the Kailua-Kona side of the Big Island.

    Meanwhile, have a wonderful trip. Hilo is lush with plants and flowers…beautiful gardens.

    I live in Ewa Beach on the island of Oahu.
