Catching Up with Rachel

I had hoped to visit with Rachel Griffith, designer of Coin Collecting in our July/August ’10 issue at Quilt Market in Minneapolis, but unfortunately she wasn’t able to attend.

Coin Collecting

Her quilt did make the trip, however, as it accompanied June and me and made its temporary home in the booth of Sweetwater, designers of Pure for Moda Fabrics, the fabric line used to make Coin Collecting. I understand it was quite popular there! Check out this video filmed in the Sweetwater booth. Kits are also available for Coin Collecting.

Here’s a little update from Rachel.

Hey yall.
I’ve been a busy little bee since my last post
here on the quilty pleasures blog.
Busy is good, right?!?!

First things first:
We’re pregnant.
That’s right…added Baby Griffith #4 to the mix.
Things could definitely get interesting once September rolls around.

I’ve been sketching like crazy.
I realize sketching is a little ol’ school, but I rather enjoy it.
{After I sketch things I move on to cooler, more high tech methods. Promise.}

On top of sketching…I’ve been sewing like crazy.
Here’s my Color Me Happy

Coin Collecting

Oh & I’ve landed myself in a certain quilt magazine.
*hint, hint*
A huge thanks to Quiltmaker for letting a young, budding designer stretch her wings.

I’m SUPER excited to share my Coin Collecting quilt with yall.
{Appearing now in the July/August issue.}

Only time can tell what’s next.
And that can be both a good & a scarey thing.
I hope yall continue to follow along with me via my blog: p.s. i quilt
