Coming down the home stretch on my book! Fingers crossed it's ready to hand back over to my publisher tomorrow ( @landauer_publishing ) this is a peek at 9/12 of the quilts in my Utility-Style Quilts for Everyday Living book coming out this fall. After a world-wind two plus weeks of photographing and laying out the book I'm so excited to finally see it in print soon so I can share what I've been up to. Nothing worse than being too busy to post on social and having a ton of great images to share all at the same time! πŸ’ž #sharonhollanddesigns #sharonhollandquilts #sharonhollandphotography #utilitystylequilts #landauerpublishing #ihavethisthingwithquilts #makemodern #ilovequilts #scrapquilts #usingupmystash #vintagefabric #repurposedfabric

Had a pretty great view of the eclipse today! πŸŒ˜πŸŒ‘πŸŒ’ All photos were taken with my phone. I just put the solar glasses over the lens. We went to Carbondale, IL - the exact place where the 2024 eclipse will cross too! Already planning to be there in 7 years!

So far there are 792 pieces of fabric in this quilt with 132 waiting to be sewn into this top. As I'm sure you know, that means I'm 86% done sewing my Cobblestone quilt top. Pattern on @aquiltisnice 's blog. #ihavethisthingwithquilts #quiltersofinstagram

I adored this gallery. The scale of the quilts combined with how they were displayed gave such a glorious feeling of being completely surrounded by colour and patchwork. And of course the project itself was wonderful to read about - a challenge to make a progressively more difficult block every day throughout the year, a group of quilters supporting and encouraging each other throughout the project. Absolutely inspiring.

Baby-Ready! :: This sweet commission makes my heart flutter. Won't it be a darling addition to this little boy's nursery? 😍If you or a loved one have a baby on the way, I'd LOVE to do more quilts like this. 😍😍😍

Next Up :: This sweet customer baby quilt is getting some loopy love before it heads home in a couple of days. These blocks were signed at the mama's baby shower, and the colors match baby's nursery. How sweet is that?? I hope I get to do more custom quilts like this in the future! ❀️

I liked this week's Summer Sampler block [Saddle Star] so much I made another one. For my other Anna Maria Horner Sampler quilt. πŸ˜‚

Cups and Glasses:: Coffee cups hold sizable kitchen real estate in our family because in the Bright-Dobbins-Knight clan, coffee is a cornerstone of family culture, a source of energy, humor, and togetherness. β˜•οΈ (Block 5/25 of @quilterpatsloan 's Grandma's Kitchen QAL) #patsloanshowandtell #grandmaskitchenqal

A MUST SEE! Mark your calendars for Sept 23-24 and come take my Octagon Shimmer Class Sept 20-21 (Wed-Thurs) here at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore California. A variety of classes as well as a weekend of quilts hanging in the trees. There's no other show quite like this. I love the early morning hoisting of quilts to the end of the day low light that makes them all look like stain glass as the volunteers bring down these works of art. So much love and goodness at this event. The air is fresh, colorful plants and pottery mimic the pattern and color of hundreds of quilts hanging in ancient oaks. Plan ahead, come take my class and a day to walk it with your family or quilty friends. This is my second year teaching here in my favorite bright and airy classroom. Class is 9-4 both days and includes yummy bag lunch. Visit @aldenlanenursery for sign up and more info or visit my website for link.

This week our #PicturesThatShouldBeQuilts is the stunning Lençóis Maranhenses National Park in Brazil! It is truly stunning how nature produces such visual marvels like this! The contrast of color and the sharp natural lines would make this scene a fantastic inspiration for a quilt. Can you think of any other natural scenes that would make for a good quilt?
