It’s a really early morning at the Austin airport and I’m doing my best to become human.
*
I’m so not a morning person, thus the large, and very strong, iced tea!
*
Where am I off to this week? To meet the team in Nashville on our way to Quilt Week Paducah!
*
We hope to see y’all there...in the meantime, I’ll be caffeinating so I can go from this 😴 to this 😁!

We’re getting so excited for @aqsonline Quilt Week in Paducah - can you believe it’s next week!!!
*
Will we see you there?
*
We sure hope so ‘cause the town of #paducah is so very welcoming and there’s so much quilty goodness going on!
*
To start, there’s the quilt show, an incredible collection of beautifully crafted fabric art. Don’t miss it!
*
Then wander over to the vendor area - if you need or want anything quilting related, I’m betting you’ll find it.
*
And of course we’ll expect you to swing by and say hi to us and to take part in one of THREE GIVEAWAYS we’re hosting! 😁
*
There’s a wonderful quilt museum (which is staying open late during Quilt Week this year!), an art-and-history-wall bordered river, lots of local shops and some fun foodie places (but I’m keeping our fav a secret! 😂).
*
Have a favorite fun thing to do in Paducah?
*
Share it here for a chance to win Hobbs Batting, whether or not you’ll be joining us this year.
*
See y’all soon!
Steph

How many of you quilters also love creating with paper and enjoy mixed media projects ?
*
Me, me, me!
*
Well, if you enjoy papercrafting or mixed media, and you’re in our neck of the woods (Waco, TX - home of @hobbsbatting, @joannagaines and The Silos), be sure to check out @papercrownwaco.
*
I popped in after work yesterday to see what’s new and left with some fun treasures in hand, including papers that look like quilt tops - they’ll become cards!
*
Paper Crown also carries small bundles of wool and silky velvet, and some @alisonglass fat quarters, as well as mixed media supplies, and they offer classes.
*
And hey, if you’re coming to Waco, give me a shout - if I’m in town perhaps we can do lunch!
*
I hope y’all have a great weekend, wherever you may be.

A Monday selfie to start the week...this is what having a great weekend looks like!
*
Nope, I didn’t make anything this weekend, but I got to spend time with my hubby after several weeks on the road, did a bit of shopping, met up with friends from Mexico we haven’t seen in quite some time, enjoyed great food at a few new-to-us places, and spent most of yesterday outside enjoying the glorious weather at the MotoGP races here in Austin.
*
It won’t be long before we’ll be hiding from the heat, so I’m very thankful to have had a beautiful weather day like yesterday!
*
How about you - how’d you spend your weekend?
*
I’m feeling recharged and ready for a super-productive work week - lots to accomplish in the next five days!

I know you’ll be thinking, what the heck, this feed is supposed to be about quilting and creating, right?
*
Well, it still is!
*
I went to this show - a show featuring hand-built motorcycles- in Austin last night and loved seeing art being created live.
*
Swipe to see a Japanese artist painting people’s motorcycles. I had to grab some shots of him in action and share them with you - I’m all about creating and making, no matter what form it takes. You too?
*
I know there are some riders following us, and perhaps some painters too? And there are definitely Austin-based quilters following us - y’all need to check out the amazing bikes at this show while it’s in town this weekend!
*
And now, back to your regularly scheduled quilting content. 😁

I love vintage quilts and sewing machines - you too?
*
These are currently on offer at the @vintagemarketdaysofaustin event this weekend.
*
Think they have Hobbs Batting inside? I hope so!
*
If you’re interested, I wouldn’t wait - these will likely go quickly!

Another #hexies project underway!
*
I now have three of these projects in the works (when I get tired of looking at the same colors or patterns, I change to a new set of fabrics), a great flight-time activity.
*
Each set of hexies is very different and the finished ‘flowers’ will end up in different types of projects (a runner, a pillow and a bag are the intended targets at this point).
*
Have you been bitten by the #englishpaperpiecing #hexie bug?
*
I’m happy to get you hooked, just as my team did for me. 😁

Some fun patterns, textures and color combinations to inspire new quilting projects - these were spotted in the hotels and convention centers I’ve been in during the last few weeks.
*
Any favs? And what would you make?

So long California, I’m headed back to Texas and to prepping for something super exciting we’ll be sharing at Quilt Market in Kansas City - stay tuned! 😁
