Painter's Garden BOM Sneak Peek

I realize you might think it's awfully early to be talking about a 2018 block of the month quilt. But believe it or not, this is how early I am working on it in order to have it ready to roll out next year.

Painter's Garden is the name of my upcoming BOM. It features my Twilight Tones collection, which you can see on the Marcus Fabrics website here.

For Painter's Garden I am working with my friends at Aurifil Thread to put together the perfect thread collection to go with the BOM.

I am also working with my friends at AccuQuilt. Painter's Garden can be cut with the Go!Cutter and the 8"Qube (plus some other dies). Instructions will include traditional cutting, plus cutting for the Go! The system is really quite impressive--I had everything cut out for two quilts in one sewing day!

If you are thinking about a block of the month quilt for 2018, ask your local quilt shop to get on board with Painter's Garden. And check back in for updates and more sneak peeks here on my blog and over on Instagram.

So long and here's a shout out to all of you from my husband Oliver and our grandson Hunter.
