- Sherri McConnell in Nevada, visit www.aquiltinglife.com/
I've been a huge fan of Sherri's work for years, who isn't! She has an amazing sense of color, and you can see that in her Moda fabrics she and her daugher Chelsi design. Her books are full of yummy quilts you want to make and she is another person with a 'to dye for' website name 'A Quilting Life'.. it's perfect! Sherri's Splendid Sampler Story is a tribute to the ladies in her family that gave her a deep appreciatin for quilt making.
- Julie Karasek in Elm Grove, Wisconsin at www.patchedworks.com/ visit http://fabricjules.blogspot.
I got to know Julie when we both gave talks at the Moda Open house. Now everytime I'm at the show I have to get a 'Julie Hug'!! She gives the BEST hugs ever! She and her husband Frank own the most adorable quilt shop in an old build. .. ok.. i've only seen photos but you KNOW it's cute! Julie is a party maker, if you are doing an event at her store you in for a treat because the fun is never ending! I hear during some clubs she even serves special cookies that are NEVER served any other time.. see.. don't you wish you were there? Julie's Splendid Sample story is about a memory from her first quilt retreat.
- Ebony Love in Northern Illinois visit lovebugstudios.com/blog/
Ebony is such a clever designer and die cut expert! If you ever want to know anything about any kind of die cutting, she is your 'go to' person. She and 'Mr T.' have a lot of details for you. And she hosts lots of fun things at her website. I am always impressed she keeps up on the lastest and then runs a fun project to go along with it! Her Downton Abbey series of projects were my fav. Dec 18 is Ebony's day on the Spendid Sampler, you will LOVE her block
- Martingale in Bothell, Washington! visit with the editors at blog.shopmartingale.com/
My publisher is Martingale and I have been over the moon getting to know them. They are an incredible team of smart, clever and hard worker people. When I put my best effort into my book, I know that over 30 more people put in their best effort too for books that are worth owning. They are also publishing the Splendid Sampler book and two of the three Editor blocks have been shown. Jennifer tells us about homes, Karen about her button basket, and we still have one from Beth!
