I haven't had a chance to post in awhile, so its time to catch up. My quilt arrived on time to the publisher and she seemed to like it, so now I just need to send the pattern and instructions. I got the chance to go to the quilt show in Harrisburg last weekend with a friend, where we decided to buy a long arm quilting machine. We have about a month to figure out where we will put it.

Just dropped off a quilt to the long-arm quilter, finally! I should have it back by the end of the week, time enough to get the binding on and have it to the editor of the magazine that wants to publish it by Sept. 15th. This will be my first quilt in a magazine if all goes well.

Got to start a new project today! I received some new fabric from Moda to make a sample quilt that will be featured on the front of the pattern when it is ready. By the time I have the pattern ready, the fabric should be in the quilt shops and available if someone would like to make a quilt just like the one pictured on the pattern. Now I just have to hope all goes as planned.

Today, I started cutting the fabric for the raffle quilt for my guild with another guild member. We didn't get too far since I had to go back and check some of my measurements and whether the fabrics we chose would work the way we pictured, but at least we got started. I tend to wait until the last minute on my projects, so it is helpful to have someone to work with that likes to jump in and finish up early. Now I can get back to all of the other projects I have in the works. More about those later
