My friend Bernie, at Needle and Foot, hosted a sixth round of Fiction and Fabric. She took signups of interested reader/fabric lovers who wanted to participate and created reading groups to pass around a book. I signed up to read The Undomestic Goddess. I was sold as soon as I read Bernie's description that the main character reminded her of Amelia Bedelia. The way Fiction and Fabric works is that Bernie ships the book off to the next reader on the list, with three fat quarters that somehow relate to the novel. The recipient keeps the fabric and reads the book, then chooses three fat quarters to send to the next person. Here's the bundle I received from Kristie with the book.
I recently finished reading The Undomestic Goddess, a delightfully funny, laugh-out-loud book. I chose the following fabrics to send off to Bernie. I look forward to seeing how she uses them.
There are three new projects that I'm starting this month, but this clearly needs to be a "finish it up" kind of quarter. ;-) Many of these projects are workshop samples or will go into my trunk show when I lecture in the Fall and beyond. Here's the rundown. It's a long list (only 40!), but I really like to have them listed all in one place. ;-)

In February I shared photos of the goodies from my first Island Batik Ambassador box. My second (and final) box of the year just arrived and I thought it would be fun to offer you a video tour. Here's my official unboxing video! I'd love to hear what catches your eye.
I'm excited to get started with these vibrant colors and have already pre-washed the first batch. I chose one of the Paisley Dot colors to include in this month's project, but I'm saving the rest of that glorious rainbow for later. ;-)
