Spring WAS HERE!

Hi all! Hope your April is looking better than mine! Today there is 6" of snow on the ground and more is falling as I write this.
"Spring WAS HERE"
should be written in the snow on my driveway!
It was, we saw it. All the signs of spring were here, and my tulips are 12" tall with buds ready to burst and covered in snow now. UGH! Depressing as it is, there is some good news to share!

I am wrapping up the finishing touches on a quilt book that I am writing. It will go to the printer sometime in the next 10 days! It is really fun to see it coming together and I can't wait to share it with you! So as soon as I can I will. Instead here is a sneak peek at some of the quilts from the book-not much to see yet is it? More will come soon. I am doing a lot of binding right now! The book will be ready for Market in May and I will be releasing it around May 1st-one month from today~!
My book is titled: "Tidbits from Triangles"
Yep it's all about Half Square Triangles-- and even the beginners out there will love it, because they are the reason I wrote it! I don't want any quilter, new or experienced, to feel intimidated by a quilt design with a lot of Half Square Triangles in it-- I break down the hard parts and make them easy for you. My book has some easy patterns in it, and some a little harder, but they are all fun to make.

Also, a new Schnibbles project for April and the Parade of March quilts has been posted on Sherri's blog for the Schnibbles quilt along.

Lastly, a new block for the Jelly Roll Sampler has been posted on moosequilts. This one was designed by Debbie Maddy who is a great designer and loves designing with half square triangles just like me.
