An Exciting Announcement!

I am SO excited! I finally conquered one of my fears and wrote a quilt pattern! I have quite a few patterns that are scattered through my art journals, but I've been too intimidated to actually turn them into real patterns. Now that I've finished this one, I am gearing up and ready to finish them all! (as soon as I can find the time, of course.) Some of them I have started the actually quilt for, others not. But either way, I'm hoping that you'll see more from me in the future! (like the Giant Granny Square Quilt someone asked me about over a year ago. Nope, I haven't forgotten.) :)

Anyway, to celebrate my first full quilt pattern (because trying something new, and busting through intimidation is definitely worth celebrating) I have put together a blog hop! There are some amazing people joining me and I'm so excited! (and grateful!) Some were kind enough to test my pattern for me, and bear with me with all of my delays and updates. After my pattern was finished, I asked a few more people to join in. So be sure to stop by and visit all the stops! :) It begins on Monday September 9th, right here with me.
