Meeting my Fellow Minnesota Island Batik Ambassador!

Today I had the opportunity to meet one of my fellow Island Batik Ambassadors from Minnesota Vicki.  Where to meet?  Duh!  A quilt shop.  The fantastic All in Stitches in Zumbrota, Minnesota.  I haven't been there in three months and I was itching to go back. Check out Vicki's blog Vicki's Crafts and Quilting.

Besides both of us being from Minnesota, the other reason we were meeting was so that I could give her a copy of my new book Folk Art Quilted Traditions so she can work on a project for me!  I can't wait to see what all my bloggy friends create from my book.  The blog hop will be October 10-14!  Make sure you come back and check it out.

And here's a peak at the back of my new show quilt that will debut at Quiltweek Des Moines in October.  If you've been following my blog for awhile you have seen what I referred to as Blog Quilt #1, the project that started it all.  Here's the front before it was quilted.

And here's a peek at the back.  More in October when in debuts!

I hope you get to quilt today!
