Hello and happy 2012! It’s been a busy couple months but I’m really excited for some new quilting. I’m so honored to be the incoming president of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, and my fellow officers and I are planning some fun things with the guild! Hope to see you at our January 19th meeting – 7-9 pm at PNCA, room 205.

I have a new patchwork project to share that I’ll write up and post this week – a little companion/sequel to the Sunshine and Sock Monkeys Quilt.

Everett really loves this one! It was kind of hard to get even a quick snapshot of it.

Last, I just posted a new correction for the Market Tote (page 141) from Modern Log Cabin Quilting.

The seam allowance is incorrect on the first page (says 3/8″, should be 1/4″) – lots more details here on the corrections page. I’m so sorry about the error, but you can make a beautiful, sturdy, slightly smaller bag with the 3/8″ seam allowance, like Mary‘s here on the right (approximately 14″ blocks instead of 16″).

I’ll see you soon with the new project and some of my favorite photos of reader-made projects from the book – thank you to everyone who has added theirs to the MLCQ flickr pool!
