Pre-Quilt Class Questions & Sunset on the Sound ~ Clue #8!

How is everyone surviving February?   Can you believe we are half way through the Sunset on the Sound mystery clues?  Clue #8 is revealed today!  It's been another busy week between trying to complete two quilts for my next two pattern releases and tons of emails!  I mean tons! You can tell we are approaching Quilt Show season!  AQS Quiltweek in Lancaster is only a few weeks away and I'm teaching five classes there (there are a few seats left in Calm Seas and two seats in Sparkle if you are interested - AQS Classes ), and I'm starting to get a lot of questions on fabric selection, cutting instructions, etc.  I thought it might be helpful to address some of them in today's post.

Twilight Chic Blog Hop and Sunset on the Sound Clue #6

Yeah it's Friday!  This week I have a special treat, not only am I revealing Clue # 6 of my Sunset on the Sound Mystery Series , but I'm hosting the Studio 180 Design & Island Batik Twilight Chic Blog Hop.   Available today only , I'm offering the  free pattern,  of the project, I selected to make with the  Twilight Chic Fabric , Deb Tucker’s signature collection for Island Batik, designed by Kathy Engle! Let me tell you more about it.   A few weeks back I was asked if I wanted to participate in the Studio 180 Design & Island Batik Twilight Chic Blog Hop, and of course I said yes!  I love Island Batik fabric and the colors that Deb elected to be in her signature line.  I've been in my "Timeless with a Twist" book mode, and I was working on one of the extra projects for the first book, the Spring Has Come Table Runner and thought to myself, wow, using the fabrics from Deb's collection would make a great Fall Has Come version! So, when
