  1. I was looking for the fabric pack for the quilt by Laura Nownes, Going to Market. Looks like the fabric was Riley Blake. I love the pink, lime green and browns and would make a great quilt for my Aunt.

  2. I just received an order of your rulers from one of my wholesalers. The rulers are great! – Just what are needed for both the right & left handed quilters. As a quilt shop owner for 15 years I would like to recommend that the packaging label needs to be improved on ( take a look at the OLFA – non-slip ruler – frosted advantage that you are competing with. We will push your rulers, but I can tell you that a customer won’t pick up the package/ruler with such a small label (it needs to be at the top of the package and much more “in your face” detailing. We hang all rulers & the label isn’t even seen. Sue Wells, Heritage Quilts & Fabric Shoppe

  3. I would love to win the ruler and grip-it,,,as a new quilter, I need all the tools I can get:) Just started quilting my first pieced quilt that is bigger than a pillow!

  4. Darra, I would like to send you an invitation to Cobblestone’ s 30 th anniversary party, but need an address. Denyse Eisenhardt, pres. 2012

  5. I fell in love with both the santa and christmas tree pieced blocks. The link to the the tree block appears to be broken. Is there another link?

  6. This is a tough one. We are blessed these days with such beautiful fabrics, that I find it difficult to throw much of it out . . . for sure I would keep a 2-2 1/2 inch square and maybe even some strips for a piano key border or a string quilt. And then there are all those little bits your might need for applique, It’s the reason my quilt room looks like the Fabric Fairy exploded. I love it all.

    1. Mary, Scroll down to the bottom of the post and you’ll see a place to comment. Better hurry…the giveaway ends at midnight, August 22, with the winner announced in my Friday, August 24 post. Good luck! Darra

  7. Could you tell me how I might get in touch with Sherry Reynolds? I am the Program Director for the La Plata Quilt Guilt (Durango, CO) for 2013.
    Thank you, Ann Karnes

    1. Hi Ann, I don’t think any of us know Sherry personally…just through her fabulous quilts. I know she lives in Laramie, WY, but she seems to keep a pretty low profile. Apparently she is a member of the Wyoming State Quilt Guild; they might be able to help you out. Their contact email is: wsqg@hotmail.com. Good luck! Darra

  8. Hello, I just visited your site for the first time and I love it! I logged on to see something from Jennifer, who is due to speak at my local quilt guild next month…I’m looking forward to her workshop. I was also excited about the 3 in 1 Color Wheel, what a great help that could be! I browsed all of your blogs and photos…and will be back to look and read again soon. Lots of inspiration!

    Thank you ~ Debbie Jenkins

  9. I really appreciate your instructions on how to utilize the 3-in-1 color tool. Choosing colors for quilts has always been a challenge for me… until now. Thank you. -Donna Novander

  10. I love the post on color! I belong to a group of artists (quilters, photographers,painters, mixed media artists) and we are in the process of going through a design book together. The exercises you posted from Joen’s book fit right in with what we are doing. Thanks!

    1. Linda, is that you? I would love to hear about the group you are in. Is it in Boone or in FL?
      I’m back to doing a little 3 x 5 collage a day, based on the challenge we set for ourselves in Amelia a few years ago. Laura has been interested in getting a creativity group together. Maybe?? Darra

  11. Darra,
    Catching up a little here- life and Dr. appts. tend to get in the way. First, thank you for the info on showing a design from a discontinued magazine. I think your suggestion will work. Second, your Nov. 4th post. Stars are still my favorite blocks. I have been using the fast flying geese method since 1994 when Quiltmaker published it in their Sept/Oct issue. They had a chart for a common sizes so I have even elimanted the math part. When I find technique pages that I know I will use I copy them. When I have two of these pages tape them together (back to back) take to print shop and have them laminated. Now I always can find them for quick reference.
    When you have time e-mail when love to catch up.

  12. Hi Dara,
    I hope it’s alright with you, but I just put a link to your post about Joen Wolfram’s new book, Adventures in Design on my blog, Notesfromnorma.blogspot.com. I have two quilts in her book and blogged about it just a little. Your review was so excellent that I thought it would be good for people to read your post. You said it so much better than I ever could.

    1. Hi Norma, I’m so happy that you linked my review! It was a tough decision which quilts to include. Your quilts in Joen’s book are wonderful. I’ve always had a thing for ginkgo trees, so the photo on page 48 really caught my eye. I’ll definitely visit your site, because I’d love to see more of your work. Darra

    My favorite flowers are yo-yos, with beads or sequins in the centers. My favorite “flower design” is a pieced vase-on-table, appliqued with dozens of bright yo-yo flowers, some green leaves, a bit of lace or ribbon on the vase, finished with pen-drawn green tendrils at the edges of the bouquet.

    1. Your flower design sounds fantastic, and I would love to see your work! We’re working on setting up a gallery feature on our site so that readers can post photos. Please keep an eye our for it. Good luck in the drawing! Darra
