Back to Basics News!!

Last week I got some super exciting news!!  Back to Basics was accepted to be part of the Modern Quilt Guild Showcase at International Quilt Market and Festival this fall!!  Super Happy dance :)  I love this design and quilt and am so very excited that it has this wonderful honor to be showcased.


And the timing could not be more perfect as the quilts are returned in December and I am teaching this as a class the first week in January at the Quilt St. George retreat :)    I am so looking forward to that class.  I added size options to the pattern so it will be so fun to see what fabrics and sizes my students choose ;)


I best go add a quilt sleeve to this so I can get it in the mail ;)  EEEkkk!!!!


Have a Happy Quilting Weekend ;)

P.S.  The kids all had a great first day of school, mom sighs with relief :)
