I’m out and about today doing a mini-workshop and trunk show and thought I’d leave you with just some “this & that” kind of thoughts.
1. There’s a Quiltathon this weekend. If you want to participate, get some cooking and cleaning done ahead of time! I hope to get lots of sewing done and will be here to cheer you along.
2. I truly would love to respond to every comment/e-mail you all send me but I simply cannot. I appreciate every comment and e-mail I get and I promise you I read them all but I’m spending way too much time on the computer. Often I plan to go back and respond to some of the comments/e-mails and then they get buried under more comments/e-mails and I never get back to them. I apologize for not sending personal responses and I hope you all understand.
3. The Star Sampler BOM – I will be doing this as a BOM and I hope to start on July 15. If you plan to participate, add my blog to your bloglines or whatever you use. I cannot e-mail everyone and let you know when the next installment is posted. The plan is to post new blocks on the 1st and 15th of each month but I will be traveling a good bit during the time we’re doing the BOM and I know there will be times when blocks are posted on the 14th or the 16th (or earlier or even later!). And, when a new block is posted, the old one will come down. The various blocks may be offered for sale later or for free on a website. I’m not sure what the future holds but if you want to do the BOM with me, make sure you stay up with me on getting the instructions.
I didn’t get finished with the top last week, as I had hoped, because I was really close on one of the green fabrics, made a wrong cut and had to order more fabric. I want to get mine finished and then get a few blocks ahead of myself on the instructions so I can make sure there are no errors.
I will be posting more about the yardage requirements, etc. over the next couple of weeks.
That’s all the “this & that” I can think of for now!
Don’t forget to breathe, Judy!

I don’t have a blog but I have your blog site on my favorites. Is that ok? I would love to do the BOM with you all.
Count me in!
hey it is June and you used 76 yards…so use 76 more in the next six months and walah! you used 150 yards!!! that is how I would look at it….
Can’t wait to hear about how your workshop and trunk show went today! And I can’t wait for the BOM to start! I feel a stash-busting coming on!!
Thanks for the wonderful trunkshow and workshop. We all really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the bom starting next month.
i think i’ve got enough fabric for the BOM (hopefully!). looking forward to it!
I’m planning to participate in the Quiltathon this weekend, but may do more quilting than piecing. We’ll see…
