Where does time go?

Can’t believe it has been two weeks since my last blog post.  Well, maybe I can, I was gone 6 days to teach at ‘Block Party’ event, hosted by Quiltmaker magazine in beautiful Portland, Oregon – fabulous time, great students, awesome event!

I was able to do a few posts to Facebook through Instagram on my smart phone since it is so easy.

I learned some things from my teacher friends about social media, let’s see if I’m a good student going forward, cross your fingers!

I had issues while in Portland – my laptop wouldn’t pick up the free WiFi at the beautiful Red Lion Inn.  And get this it also wouldn’t detect my MiFi that I pay for monthly – not a happy camper (probably operator error?).  These are the two reasons I didn’t Blog while away, now I’m home and will try to catch up in pieces and parts.

This evening will be a few high-lights.

First ‘Madison Manor’ fabric line is beginning to arrive at your favorite quilt shop!  You can see the line here:                                                                  http://www.andoverfabrics.com/Grid.php?GroupName=Madison%20Manor

FYI – it is much prettier in person, isn’t it always.

There is also a link on my home page for the ‘free to use’ (FTU) quilt for ‘Blue Variety’.  Candy did another great job for us on this beauty.  Remember, if you don’t need a quilt that size, make a unit for a table topper, or expand to a table runner, wall quilt, etc.  . . .  your choice.   🙂

If you shop my webstore, we are down to 10 sets available of the 5 book bundle special.

Would like to share this picture of the happy teachers in Portland – I think we were all photogenic at that moment.  Great memory for me!

Gudrun Erla, Bonnie Hunter, Debbie Caffrey, Jo Morton, Beth Farrier, Diane Harris, June Dudley and Peg Spradlin with her DH Darold.  Julie Herman was under the weather and don't have a picture of her.

Happy Stitching!

  1. Jo, I really enjoyed your back basting appliqué class at the Block Party! Besides learning a new appliqué technique I had a great time in class!!! This was an introductory class for a friend that attended with me and I’m happy to say she loved the class, found it very relaxing and is ready to sign up for a beginning quilting class as well. I think she’s “hooked”!
