Houston 2014

We extended our stay in Houston this year.  It was a great experience at both Market and then Festival.  Several quilts were received well.  So many kind words of encouragement and support.  From the trip, to all the new faces, and  fun sights we did not miss a minute. This time away from home provided many opportunities for inspiration and helped me to polish a few ideas that have been percolating. I cannot wait to share them all with you soon.

New block of the month "Beauty All Around" (62" x 77").


Many thanks go out to a great, hard-working team.


One of many stops.

Winner! To Market To Market...

Fall Quilt Market is right around the corner and as many of you know I'm busy, busy getting ready. I missed Spring Market so I am taking things I had ready to take to that show along with my new projects. These last few months have been busy but we are so excited to be making another trip to Houston. Gloria Parsons of Olde Green Cupboard is going to be in my booth this time helping me out. She is so much fun and what a kick.
 
Geoff and I are about finished with our new Block of the Month pattern called "Beauty All Around" which will be available for shops to buy at Quilt Market. I know I've shown you this before but we are so happy to show it to you again and get your comments. Would you like your local quilt shops to carry this pattern???? Many pre-orders are in the mail.

"Love Bunny Hops"

I've been cutting so many kits. After Market we will have some on the website so keep watching!

Whew I am tired from just reading about your schedule. I would enjoy a copy of your pattern. Thanks for a chance.
Jacqueline, please contact me at geoffsmompattern@gmail.com with your address and the pattern will be on its way.
Fall is sure in the air. The trees at the cabin have turned and are so beautiful. Life is good here at the Weeks' home.

San Diego was a blast! Let's Have a GIVEAWAY!!!

Glad to be home!
Here is a student from San Diego Quilt Show class "Land That I Love". We had so much fun! No time for much shopping (so sad), but visited lots of friends. (I even made time to have a date with an old boyfriend. Wow.  As the time flies by.)

Love my students. We had some great class giveaways. All had a super time. We shared finished projects and started a few more.

I have been planning a few quilting retreats. I didn't even have time to tell you all about the "Primitive Gatherings" group in April, 2015, and it is already filled up! If you would like to be placed on the waiting list let me know since I'm thinking about planning another one there as well. Friends from California, Arizona, Utah, and Florida all have been able to make time in April.

Upcoming sites include St. George, Utah, sometime soon. Is anyone interested in joining us?

I'm back on the road again tomorrow to teach a class in Page, Arizona. Then it is on to St. George to work on the new place. I'll be back home in Midvale in about 10 days. Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful day.
