This one from Quiltmaker Magazine July/August 10 Issue 134 by Theresa Eisinger called Pinwheel Cove was fast, fun and beautiful as it came together.  I just love it!  The blue is electric in it with the more suttle teal, medium and light greens.  I liked her version so much that was featured on the cover that I had to have one of my own--only in Batiks!  I've called my quilt Komfort Kove.  It's one of my 2011 UFO projects.  It will be going to Kerry's Quilting on Saturday and I'll be able to claim the yardage usage on Sunday with Patchwork Times!

I've been working on my 1st ever Quilty Lecture that is scheduled for Tuesday, May 10 at Sunshine Quilters in El Cajon, CA.  I've had several of my close quilting sisters help me choose what goes into my "trunk show".  Now all I have to do is find enough room in two (possibly three) large suitcases that I'll use for the transport.  Many of them are large quilts.  Its been suggested that the less the folds the more that I'll be able to pack in the space I've got.  My topic for the evening is "How to Get Published".  All the recent activity with being the 1st Quiltmaker Magazine Quilt-Along Blog Host on Quilters Club of America gives me lots to talk about.

I'm  still trying to find the time to put the finishing touches on my Paper Piecing Tutorial.  I used Dancing With Waves pattern for it.  Bare with me...it is coming.

Have you been on the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Blog Tour this week?  I've been on Monday and Tuesday and plan to go there next.  Some exciting blog sites to visit and lots of opportunities for prizes!  Tomorrow is BAE Systems Quilters May monthly meeting.  I'm planning a dry run....  Hope your week is filled with quilty things...make sure you visit your sewing room frequently...even if it's just to get good vibes!
