Quilting Gallery Newsletter – 6 January 2012

Welcome to the latest edition of the Quilting Gallery Newsletter filled with lots of quilty FUN!

I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season and I wish you the best for 2012. I enjoyed spending some quality time with family, friends and, of course, Milo. He had is 4-month check-up at the vet’s yesterday and now weighs a whopping 6 lbs. He’s added a good 6" in length and 2" in height. He’s a quick learner and can already do sit, shake both paws, down and we’re working on crawl right now. I will post some updated photos of him on the blog this weekend. Here he is helping me open a Christmas present:


I managed to get two Smitten with Mittens Table Runners completed in time for my family to enjoy over the holiday season. Mittens pattern courtesy of Erin Russek – download links here.

I’m currently working on a massive list of free BOMs, quilt-alongs, challenges, etc. starting up, or already in progress. The list will be published on the blog this Sunday. If you are organizing a free group project, email me the info (link, photo/graphic & two sentences).

More fun stuff below including next week’s LIVE radio show and save a UFO from certain death – a quilting challenge.

Save a UFO from Certain Death

Quilt Challenge Save a UFO

Are you ready for a challenge? Along with Quilting Is Murder, I’m thrilled to be hosting this quilt challenge where we ask participants to save a UFO (unidentified project) from certain death by finishing it up!

Head over to the Quilting is Murder – Save a UFO Challenge page for all the details. I hope you’ll join the FUN and rescue one of your UFOs.

I’ve challenged myself to complete my postage stamp quilt top.

Quilting Radio Show

On Monday, I’ll be a guest on Pat Sloan’s live Quilting Radio show. You can listen in live at 4pm Eastern (3pm Central, 2pm mountain, 1pm Pacific) or the show will be available for download after too. I’ll be sharing the plans for 2012 at the Quilting Gallery including a super secret project that Pat and I had been working on.
