April is one of my favorite months of the year. Why? Because this is the month I get to record the Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting season 3800 for PBS! We record four shows a day for a week out in Colorado and it is a brutal schedule but my co-host, Sara Gallegos, makes this so fun!

I can’t wait for you to see all the quilts we have planned for Love of Quilting Season 3800. One of the quilts I know you’ll love is Songbird Stars. Take a look at that pieced outside border made up of 3″ finished Birds in the Air blocks. Now, before you fall out of your chair thinking about how tedious it would be to piece that many itty bitty birds…. you’ll LOVE the technique I share on how to make them FOUR AT A TIME! Whoop! Seriously…. we did a little dance here when we figured this out. You are going to be DAZZLED!

Oh, and I had some fun with funky improv string quilts. My triplets are graduating from college this spring and I wanted to make each of them a quilt to celebrate their accomplishment. Of course, making three quilts at once is a challenge but these string blocks are so fast to make!

I supposed if you pushed me to pick a favorite quilt this season it would be my Moonlight Mermaid quilt. It is simple, elegant and provides lovely space to play with the quilting. I even made a mermaid tail wreath with my APQS Quilt Path!

I can’t wait for you to see Love of Quilting season 3800 and don’t forget that all of the patterns for these quilts will appear in the Love of Quilting magazine over the coming year. If you decide to make one of my patterns, I’d love to see it. Post it over on our Facebook page or over on the Quilted Joy Clubhouse page!
