Earlier this week, the Quilting Gallery turned 7!! I want to thank you all for visiting my site over the years, leaving comments, sending me email, buying my patterns, joining swaps and other fun events. I adore all of you!
If someone had told me seven years ago, that quilting would become my main source of income and encompassing so much of my life, I wouldn’t have believed them. But that it has, and I’m very grateful and fortunate to be able to live the life as a quilter.
I have lots of exciting things planned for you in the new year. Of course, the move has put me a bit behind schedule, but I’m working hard to get caught up.

Earlier this month, Aurifil announced the 2015 Aurifil Design Team. For the past few years, designers have been making free quilt blocks to share with Aurifil fans. You might remember my Nana’s Buttons block from earlier this year.
Next year, instead of blocks, the designers will be sharing free mini quilts with you. Here is the star-studded line-up of designers:
