My quilt in Houston, a tutorial to celebrate, learn about good design and gratitude!

It was there, my quilt hung in Houston for the first time in the juried show.  A great gal Debbie, found it and took a picture of it for me.

Another friend posted it on fb for me, and told me it was hanging beside Sheila Frampton Cooper's quilt!  (the one to the right of mine)   I facebooked that it was hanging beside hers, then wondered 'Is she facebooking  that hers is beside Jackie White's?'  
I am just being silly, mostly because I am over the moon that my quilt finally hung in that show that I have spent so many years trying to get into!

To celebrate, head on over to the great Craftsy quilt blog and look at my fun tutorial on 3D flowers. They are so easy and the sky is the limit in making these!

I simply have to point you in the direction of '10 Principles of Good Design'. While not everything applies, it is an excellent read.

Lastly is a powerful video on gratitude that has already garnered over 1 million likes.

To all of you that read my blog... thank you!

First let me say Congrats on your quilt being in the show (yes I may have said it already but it bears repeating!)

What a great and simple tutorial on the 3D flowers. I am thinking "I can do that!"

I really enjoyed what I watched of the Gratitude video. I put it in my list to watch later when I have some "restful downtime."
