Autumn Awesomeness for This Quilter

I predicted that 2014 would be a great year for QUILTArtbyMegan. Well, looks like I was right! I’ve been working on a little bit every day, even on the days when I don’t feel creatively inspired. Those ten-minutes at a time do really add up! Here’s what’s on the horizon.

Quilt shows! Several of my quilts will be in shows this autumn. “Picking Up the Pieces” will be part of the Badass Quilters’ Society exhibit at the American Quilt Society’s quilt week in Des Moines, IA. If you’re in the area from October 1st-4th pop in and check it out! I’d love to see a photo of you standing in front of it. (Hint, hint.) Yes, this is the same quilt that won the first place in the large quilts category at a local show a few years ago. I’m so excited to be showing it to a whole new group of people!

There’s also a show in October for my new local guild. Local changes when I move, ya know. I’m showing a few quilts in this one, too. I’ll show you which ones those are as the date gets closer. This is a good place to find me if you wanna give me an in-person hug. 🙂 For now there’s quilting, binding, and sewing sleeves to the back in my to-do list.

SV Quilt showLike my crumb quilts? I’ll be teaching a class on my technique on November 7th at SLO Creative in San Luis Obispo, CA. It’s called “Crumbled Placemats.” Here’s the official description:

Beginner friendly, Megan Null’s technique is all straight lines. Make a placemat in class or get a start on a larger project. Great for quilts, bags, pillows and more.

I’m quilting one of the samples tonight.

What else? Oh! I’m working on a guest blogger entry for a larger blog. It’s about a quilt that helped me process a huge event in my life. I’m very excited to be sharing my story and will keep you updated on when to expect that “in print”. You know, the online kind instead of the paper kind. Unless you want to print it out. I’m totally cool with that.

Also, I’ve gotten a few requests to see the finished t-shirt quilt I was working on. So here’s that. Ta-da! Thanks go to my hubby and his step-dad for their arms.
