I'm getting ready to teach the Barns class tomorrow at Quilted Threads, so I am gathering up all my stuff. The class is full, but QT always creates a waiting list so I will teach the class again later, probably after the Holidays.

I'm very excited because I'll have the Colorado quilt with me, and it will be quilted! I can't wait to see it. The quilter, Janet Lee Santeusanio of Woodland Manor Quilting, will be delivering it to me later today or at QT tomorrow, I don't know which yet.

Janet Lee wrote "... those birds and chickens are so flipping cute..."

You can see every bird I've ever made if you just look through the history of this blog. If you want to make your own birds, you can buy my tutorial, for sale on Etsy.

The barns were inspired by my friend Julie Sefton, who literally wrote the book on building free pieced barns, Build-A-Barn.  Julie's spectacular quilt, See Rock City, is on display at Quilted Threads. It's well worth a trip to QT to see this quilt in person.

And you may have noticed a new button on my sidebar. I'll be teaching a Birds class at the MQX show in Manchester NH next April. Registration starts November 15th.

It's lovely without quilting but will be so fun to see it quilted and by Janet Lee no less!

Congrats on the MQX gig and for the FANTASTIC Colorado quilt finish. I love the flowers you included....they really add some sparkle and balance to everything, both literally and figuratively, representing your SIL. Hats off to another fantabulous finish (a made up word, I know, it fits such a stunning quilt).
