It’s always such a relief to FINALLY get this far…

I sent my patterns to the printer this week, yeah!!!

That means soon & very soon I’ll have new patterns to show you!

Suzn+Quilts+Millbrook+1892+Moda-4Remember this from a few months ago?

Moda’s Mill Book 1892 collection.

(I can’t believe it’s been that long!)

It takes a lot of work to finally get to this step.

I never time myself,

but believe me it takes months from the conception of a quilt design

to patterns in a bag or book, ready for you to sew.

International Spring Quilt Market is May 15-17 in Minneapolis.

I will have no less than (& perhaps more than)

two new patterns that showcase my Tiny & Mini Dresden plates,

a new Quilt-as-you-go table runner pattern,

& & &

another pattern that incorporates

both my Tiny & Mini Dresden plates with a Quilt-as-you-go lap quilt!

How about that?

I can’t wait to show them to you :)

Until then

I promise I’ve been working,

but I do get sidetracked once in a while &

not in an entirely lazy way…

I sometimes stop to capture an image of the beauty of the process.

These are the Tiny Dresden flowers for my new quilt with the Mill Book 1892 collection.

Once I popped the paper templates out of the centers,

I spread them out on my kitchen table to dry under the ceiling fan.

They’re so pretty I couldn’t help myself.

I was so intently working that I forgot to photograph my helper while she was fully decked out with all the Tiny petals, sorry.

I did get a shot of the second round of Mini petal sections drying one day last week though.

When you make the Dresden blocks a bit at a time, when they’re finished, they seem as though they went together all by themselves!

Recess over.

Back to work.

Perfect timing too, UPS is here with my extra fabric!

Just keep sewing,
