Whirlwind Month and International Quilt Market

It has been a crazy whirlwind month (ok, September and October both were) and now I am home from International Quilt Market with stories to share.
First, this is a new design that will be released for sale in the spring but some shops were able to have it for free from my Schoolhouse talk. Hopefully they will use it as a Saturday Make and Take to get more people excited about redwork. I named it Spiral Trellis but there has been some talk of naming it DNA Daisies...What do you think?
As you will see over the next week, I am in love with redwork. The variegated threads available to us are just so luscious to use. So I have 2 new designs right now and 3 more coming very soon.
I met some very sweet shop owners this Market and I would encourage you to visit a few of them now carrying my patterns:
Jean's Corner in Livingston, TX
Austin Sewing & Vacuum in Round Rock, TX
STAY TUNED for booth pics, new patterns, and more stories.

Robin, when I lived in Texas 42 years ago, I could not believe how many people sewed, and how well. I wonder if they handed down those skills to the next generation? If they did those quilt patterns ought to fly off the shelves. Red work sounds like fun.

I love this design and I like your Spiral name best. Never been a huge redwork chick but I love the idea of using variegated threads and combined with this modern design you just may win me over. Glad to have been able to meet you for real at market and I hope it was all you were wanting it to be and more. I will be picking your brain over it as I stew and contemplate this next year.
