I am offering a couple of things that will help you to keep leaning and sewing during these unusual times.  The first is that my goal of adding Instructional Videos has finally become a reality and there are three of them for you to watch now:

 Keep Learning

In-person classes are not an option right now, but that doesn't mean you have to stop learning!  I recently reprinted my book Design Essentials: The Quilter's Guide and not only will if give you a better handle on  design principles and elements to help you make better quilts, but there are several technical approaches for you to try when you are making your next quilt.  Best of all it's a $27.95 book on sale for $22!

 -How I've been Keeping Busy-
Our young friends had a baby last month and before their due date, I busied myself making a baby quilt for them. I chose  Moon Over the Mountain blocks, each bordered with a narrow yellow and then a wider print border. I love giving this quilt with the classic baby book, Goodnight Moon by Katherine Wise Brown.
Wishing you all lots of Creative Juices flowing abundantly and Happy Sewing!
