DWM: a clean slate

Nothing on the design wall today because I've been finishing flimsies (unquilted tops)!  In the past two weeks I've quilted and bound Rusty Bows , Leftovers , and  Ohio Stars .  I am nearly finished quilting Nine Patch Cross .  Pam S. finished quilting Double Delight which I picked up on Saturday and bound last evening.

A bad case of hat-hair....
Yesterday afternoon Irene and I joined many quilting friends at the Warren-Newport Public Library for a book-signing by Jennifer Chiaverini whose latest novel is Sonoma Rose.  It's the 19th novel in the Elm Creek Quilts series and she told us she's under contract for three more.  Jennifer's first-ever library appearance was at the Lake Villa District Library in 1999.  We had to persuade the publisher that, yes, quilters would come out for an author program.  Now Jennifer goes on tour to both libraries and quilt shows when her new books are published.

Jennifer's first library program: 3/21/99, Lake Villa District Library

You can see what other quiltmakers have been working on at Judy's Patchwork Times blog


  1. You're making me tired with all the finishing you've been doing. I bet it feels great to get those done!!

  2. How fun was that!!! I just won a copy of the book on a blog. And, the book was all over the vendors at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival.

  3. So cool she came to your guild again. I'm still hoping her publisher will bring her within less than 5 hours from me next book tour. I just finished the Sonoma Rose Book last night!

  4. Oh, how lucky you are to be able to meet the author. I have all her books, except the last one, and have loved living the quilting life with her characters.

  5. Like Gari said -- I love the Elm Creek series -- such fun!! Looks like you had a blast! :)


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
