Exciting news! I'm a finalist!

I got some exciting news today....I am one of the top 100 finalists in the Accuquilt Barn Quilt Contest. This is the block I entered. It is one of the blocks I designed for the new Sampler Quilt I recently completed. Please follow this link and like my block! If I win, it will become a barn quilt at the Accuquilt headquarters in Fremont, NE. 

I have been working on a new design for a mystery quilt. I posted pix of the fabrics awhile 
back. I am almost finished with it, just have to add the borders. I am planning a class with 3 sessions to give everyone a chance to make this mystery and also keep them guessing! I haven't taught a mystery quilt for a couple of years, so it should be fun. Sorry I can't post pix of it, you might tell!  

 I have also been working on the Circle and Spin quilt for my daughter. Here are the blocks I have done so far.

I love asian prints! Can you use too many in one quilt?
 So vibrant, so alive... it wrong to love fabric this much?
