Sewing and Quilting Expo coming to Pittsburgh!

In case you haven't heard, The Original Sewing and Quilting Expo is coming to Pittsburgh for the first time! The show is August 2, 3 and 4, 2012 and registration for classes has begun. Lots of big name teachers and wonderful classes! I even have the opportunity to teach my tips and tricks for paper piecing with directional fabrics!

Pictured above is my project. They are ornaments with a little pocket in the back where you can hide a gift card or other small gift for someone special. Both ornaments are made with the exact same fabric but used in different positions. If you've ever wanted to use a directional fabric in a paper piecing project but found it difficult to get it just right I can show you how!

Here is a link to the Pittsburgh show:

Quilt For Sale!

This beautiful quilt is completely hand-made. I was told it was hand-pieced and it is obviously hand quilted. It measures 80" X 92". The background is pink and the kaleidoscope blocks are fussy cut and pieced from the same fabric. If you are interested in purchasing this quilt contact Kathy Hartman at 412-563-5871 or Serious inquiries only please.
