I'm happy say that spring has finally arrived here in northern Virginia. It took a while coming but now as I head out for my walks each day greets me with something new sprouting.

My trip last month to the International Patchwork Festival in Sitges, Spain, was a wonderful experience. The event was well organized and the town was beautiful. I had great students in my classes, I was able to see many friends and meet very talented quilt artists. This group really knows how to put on an event!

Speaking of teaching, I will be teaching two of my favorite classes at the Studio in the next couple of months. Visit our classes page for more information.

In this month's newsletter, we have a gorgeous new quilt, fabrics to tempt you, notions to make your quilting life easier, event news and, of course, the next clue to our Moroccan Mystery quilt.  Make sure you scroll to the bottom of this newsletter for the link to Clue #3 and the video lesson.
Sandra & Shirley have completed clue #2, how about you?
 
A Luminous New Batik Quilt, Interstellar
We know you'll be as dazzled as we were by this stunning quilt featuring my Malam batiks. It was designed by former staff member, Barbara Hollinger, and creates an effect of glowing, twinkling stars with its deceptively simple block and wonderful placement of shaded fabrics.

The pattern for Interstellar is a FREE download
