July Newsletter 2019

Welcome, Thanks for sharing your time with me. I hope you enjoy reading our newsletter. Please contact me with any comments and suggestions. I love to hear from you.

What is New and Exciting

This month I am working on another pattern test for Erica Jackman at Kitchen Table Quilting. It is called the Zola Quilt #thezolaquilt. It is a fun intermediate pattern that is fat quarter friendly. I am testing the lap size and hoping to do a Liberty Fabrics rainbow. Look for progress photos on Instagram and Facebook. The pattern should be available this summer.  As always, patterns that I test and love will be available in my shop. If you would like a kit put together for the quilt we can do that too. Contact Blue Barn Quilt Co.

I am an active member of our local County Quilters Guild and the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild. As June marks the end of our guild year it also means planning for next year. Plans are being made for sew-a-longs, block of the month, workshops and retreats for next year. Stay tuned for updates. Your local guild is a great place to meet new friends, learn new techniques, and share your love of quilting with community service projects. Check out your local guild.

What I'm Reading:

I love to read. I especially love books about real people, World War 2, and how to live a better life. I will start with one of my all time faves.

1. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. This one is about giving thanks and finding joy in life. I love this book.

2. The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball. It’s a memoir about farming, food and love.

3. The Tattooist of Auschwitz. An extraordinary read! I couldn’t put this one down.

At my reading chair eagerly awaiting my attention are

1. Happiness by Randy Alcorn

2. A Vineyard in Tuscany by Ferenc Mate

3. The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff

What I'm Listening to:

1. The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast

2. Modern Sewciety podcast by Stephanie Kendron

3. Back Porch County playlist on Apple Music (I’m trying to broaden my horizons)
