Look what is on the front cover to the AQS 2013 Contest Rules....Yolk Music! I knew it was going to be a cover girl, but had kind of forgotten about it and was surprised when I saw the book.
I am very lucky and very excited to be a guest judge for The Printed Bolt's fabric design competition. The first entries have been submitted. Don't tell me what you think until after the weekend, as I am trying to be impartial as I look at the designs. My Thursday "sew mates" Linda Warren and Hinkie Pinkie were here today when I looked at the submissions for the first time. For two opinionated ladies, they did a great job of keeping their mouths shut and not commenting. After a quick review I already have a few favorites - and I am sure I will buy some of the fabric that is printed from Spoonflower!
You can see the entries and you should vote by Sunday, March 25 at midnight for your favorite designer here.
The string quilt top is almost finished. I just need to finish pressing some of the seams. Because it is foundation pieced, I need to press the seams open. I hate that job so much. The top has been done for a week, except for 5 seams that need to be pressed open. UGH. What quilting jobs do you hate???
