Getting Ready for Spring Quilt Market

It's official -- I am headed to Pittsburgh next month for Spring Quilt Market.  This time I am going to promote my book, Russian Journey in Quilts and its Sampler Quilt/ Block of the Month guide.

Did you know that the large sampler quilt in my book can be done as a BLOCK OF THE MONTH program?  When I wrote the book I also created a free PDF download for the Russian Journey Sampler BOM guidelines.

I just love love love the focal print in the center (and the borders too) -- this was a retro Russian fabric I bought from Russia.  I was s nervous waiting the two months it took to get here....but it finally did and I was certainly not disappointed because it really makes this quilt sparkle!

The Russian Journey Sampler Quilt in the book:

I am making another version of the Russian Journey Sampler, which I am calling MODERN GROOVE.  I'm using the Neutral Love fabrics from Connecting Threads.  It's really weird to me to follow my own directions to make the blocks.  Happily, the instructions are very good!!  LOL!  :) 

Here are my blocks so far:

This is what I anticipate the quilt basically looking like when finished.  I decided not to make the flag blocks and substituted the focal print instead:
I want to get the top completed before May 7th when I have a Russian Journey in Quilts trunk show and lecture with the Quilter's Night Out guild in Warren, PA. 
Then it will be on to Market.
