Full to Overflowing


It is not my nature to apologize for a pause in blogging or to complain or have excuses, but I do think it is fair to say that my life is currently full to overflowing with activity. I have definitely missed writing blog posts and being able to keep everyone up to date on what projects I am working on, and I plan to get back into a routine where I can do that very soon.

So, I am just popping in with a few quick updates today.

The Fat Quarter Shop is turning 14, and to celebrate, they are having a 14 day period of special Flash Sales! I am also celebrating Fat Quarter Shop’s recently renewed sponsorship of my blog, more details to follow on that sometime soon, too. (Note: These are non-affiliate links.)

Warm Sunburst Made by Madilyne Malone

I received a lovely and welcome email from Madilyne sharing her recent finish of a warm version of Sunburst that she made to gift to a friend. The colors are so radiant and striking and I hope her friend enjoys the bright warmth of this quilt and thinks of her fondly and often.

One of my greatest pleasures as a quilt pattern designer is to see how my patterns are used and re-created, and I love receiving emails and sharing your work. 🙂

Until next time, know that I am working behind the scenes on lots of variations of quilting and life activities!


  • You have a great positive attitude, Yvonne, and you share that so easily on your blog. I hope you continue to enjoy your creative process, even if it is overflowing! I’ll look forward to hearing about what you’ve been up to in later posts! Enjoy your day!

  • Full to overflowing sounds like it’s busy but in a good way. I enjoyed their flash deal yesterday and picked up some fabrics with their $25 off of $100…and free shipping to boot. Now I’ll just have to find room in my closet for increased stash. –Andrea

  • Yvonne, thank you for the note. I hope that your activities are fun and exciting. Happy thoughts and good energy to you and yours.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
