I also taught my Stars Over St. Louis workshop. It is another workshop on using mirrors and it is always interesting to see what kinds of fabrics people bring to create the quilt. Even if two people used the same fabric each quilt would be unique. My book is still selling well, which I am thankful for!

I do have some new kits available on my website. Tic Tac Toe, featured in Fons and Porter features more of the Habitat collection by Benartex. That fabric was so much fun to design with I created 4 different quilts with it. The other kits using the collection are Yin and Yang, featured in McCalls Quilting and AraBella a free web pattern on Benartex's website.
I will also be adding some new workshops to the website. They will feature the use of my Cutting Corners template set. The workshops will be on how to use the templates for different kinds of blocks that require cutting squares and drawing a diagonal line. This tool eliminates the need to draw the line. The quilts in the different workshops will be Tic Tac Toe for the advanced beginner and AraBella for the beginner. I will be adding more workshops using this wonderful tool.
