Feeling A Little Blue is a Good Thing!

A few weeks ago, we sold out of my Mrs. Miller's Apprentice fat quarter bundles, but am happy to say, they're back in stock!

In this case, being in a blue mood isn't a bad thing at all!  Teehee!
And, there's a bunch of pretty lights for your truly sunny side.  

You can find Mrs. Miller's Apprentice yardage and bundles at your local quilt shop and right here.  

Last Friday, I happily put the finishing touches on the manuscript for my second book for Martingale.  Oh....I am so jazzed about this book!  It will be out next spring sometime.  Seems like so long to wait, doesn't it?  But, considering all the work that goes into creating the beautiful books they do, transforming a pile of type written pages into the glorious color filled books we love, we have to be patient and give them time.  Sigh...so hard to wait!

In the meantime, I'm making progress (with lots of help from Debbie) on three new patterns.  Tokens of the Past: Gathering In Blue is nearly done.  Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for a few sneak peeks!  

There are no less than three new fabric lines in production as well.  I'll begin another next month sometime.  There's always something new brewing around here.  We have to keep our fabric stashes well fed.  Wink, wink!

With the manuscript now complete, I'm back to my early morning sewing.  I love starting the day that way.  It makes me feel so centered and happy.  I'm still making (read can't stop making!!) Circa 1880 Nine Patch blocks and never get tired of them.  They are such a happy, easy block to make.  I'm also sewing pieces for a new quilt (not a quilt in this new batch) as leader/enders with my morning sewing.  I feel like I get so much done before 9am!!

Well....back to getting things done for spring market.  Hope Spring has arrived at your doorstep!


  1. Not a single sign of spring here yet. Still hoping! Love those blues! My friend is making Mrs. Miller's Apprentice with her local shop (Cottonweeds in Freeport) and it is stunning! Still plugging away on my circa 1880's and loving it.

  2. Out on a walk last evening I saw the most incredible little blue birds. So bright and cute--I haven't noticed them around here before, but I would count them as a sign of spring.
    Headed to Village Dry Goods this morning for Circa 1880 Club. Maybe I will see some of these blues and be able to snatch them up!
    Can't believe all the irons you have in the fire, Pam!

  3. The blues and the neutrals made my heart sing!! Going to my local quilt shops tomorrow and will see if they have your fabric for sure.

  4. Loving the fabrics of Mrs. Miller's Apprentice. I am moving along now piecing month 3. Thanks for designing such a beautiful quilt and fabric. I am so happy to be a part of this BOM.

  5. What gorgeous blues ~ my favorite color!!

  6. Yummiest blues and both, blues and neutrals, are an eye catching.Beautiful combo.

    Yes, Spring arrived.

  7. I treated myself to a bundle of Mrs. Miller's Apprentice fat quarters a few weeks ago. The fabrics are so beautiful--it's going to be hard to cut them up!

  8. I love those blues, and the shirtings. I just went to your "store" and everything is so tempting. I want it all.
