Selecting fabric for the July @aurifilthread #BeachHousesBlock block of the month. I’m thinking about sunsets and specifically the gloriously bright fuchsia sunset I enjoyed earlier this week on my evening walk.

I have had grief that gripped me so tight I didn’t know if I could get out of bed. This grief, this sadness is both deeper and yet lighter. I deleted the Words With Friends app this afternoon. I only had it to play against Babsy. Thank you, Barbara, for loving me like one of your own grandchildren and giving me the beautiful ability to have a relationship with a grandparent as an adult.
This little orange peel feels as light as I hope you feel now.

New fun photography prop alert!! My friend @zoomar is the Director of Awesome for @archiemcphee in Seattle. When they released their new rainbow finger hands, I could not wait to get some to put on my fingers. Besides infusing a bit of fun and whimsy into my life, I really think that Archie McPhee is brilliant when it comes to marketing, packaging, and delivering more than just a product to their customers. I’ll be adding more in my stories today to show you what I mean.

It is bittersweet for me to share that my article, Modern Quilting Decisions, is included in the July/August issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited. As many of you know, Meander Publishing is closing both Machine Quilting Unlimited and Modern Quilts Unlimited and the July/August issue that my article is featured in is the last to be published for either magazine and is available in digital format only.
I enjoy approaching each quilt with a fresh perspective, and while doing something new can start with apprehension, I am always the most excited and proud of a quilt finish when I explore, try something new, and learn. My goal with the article is to encourage you to try a new thread combination or quilting technique.

I always love seeing my patterns brought to life by others. This version of Wayward Transparency started in a class I taught in Cookeville, TN in April, and I look forward to seeing how Heather finishes it!

I have taken on a larger behind the scenes role with @thequiltersplanner this year: I am the technical editor, creator of the weekly content for the 2019 Quilter’s Planner, and I can’t wait to share with you the quilt I designed for the magazine this year, too! So it is with great excitement and pleasure that I am sharing that pre-orders for the 2019 Quilter’s Planner are available today. Follow the link in my profile for more details!

Which of the two covers are you going to choose? I haven’t decided yet!!

I read Alycia @alyciaquilts post about making Flags to honor QOV quilter Sue on Wednesday, and I wanted to get up and start sewing immediately. The blocks come together quickly and I will have them in the mail today or tomorrow.

I am leisurely sewing along with #TheSplendidSampler2 sew along, and I had a lot of fun selecting my fabric for Point Taken, the block released today and designed by Susan @yardgrl60. I love how the center yellow pops. 💛

Be sure to follow @stitchersforunitedfamilies and bid on one of the ~100 beautiful quilts. If you have any other questions, you can check out more information on the organizers' personal accounts: @katebasti and @ohsewbrooke

I finished quilting this version of my #waywardtransparencyquilt pattern for a friend. Swipe for my favorite detail (the corners!) and a view of the back. Heavily inspired by Tish @tishnwonderland’s recent ghost quilting on a mini #waywardtransparency quilt. 😘

Quilted with 50wt @aurifilthread in color matching tones (2360, 2330, and 2311), and I am especially a fan of the darkest shade because the color name is Chocolate! Yum! #aurifil #aurifilartisan #Quiltthelifeintoit
