The pdf patterns will be updated and reintroduced throughout 2014 as I make cosmetic updates and create a new line of printed patterns. This is about aesthetics, not content so, if you have the original version of a pattern, there will be no need to purchase an update.
It does mean, however, that most patterns will be unavailable for at least a few months. So, if you've had your eye on a pattern, you may want to pick up the pattern now.
I've been writing patterns in pdf format for quite a few years now. Some are for my blog. Some are for my shop. Some are quilts. Some are bags. Some are small projects. I'm proud of my body of work, but I must admit that I think many of these patterns are in need of a facelift!
One of my goals for 2014 is to transition all of my pdf patterns into a better and more consistent format. I'm also working to create print versions that can be used by instructors and shops.*
To that end, January 29 is the last day that the current pdf patterns in my shop will be available. New versions of the patterns, as well as new versions of pdf tutorials on my blog, will be reintroduced throughout 2014.
The Cat Quilt pattern is the one exception. It will continue to be available in my shop during the transition.
Please note that these changes are just about aesthetics. The content will not change substantially and there will be no real need to buy the new version of a pattern if you already have the old one. In fact, if you'd like to get a good deal on the current patterns before they go away, now's your chance!

Happy New Year, everyone! I'm looking forward to a happy and productive, 2014.

I don't like to get into too much personal stuff here, but let me just say that 2013 could not be over soon enough. I'm so happy that it's a brand new year!
In lieu of the standard mosaic with a shot of every project, I picked a few of my favorites. In case you missed them the first time, I'm including links to the original posts.
Honey in Space
This is a version of the Honey quilt from Modern Patchwork that I made just so I could have a new quilt in the show at QuiltCon. It came with me to Austin and has been traveling ever since. These photos were taken in a bank plaza across the street from my hotel minutes before I had to hand it over for the show. (Thanks again, Alissa, for your help with that!)
I just wanted to post a couple of photos of the quilt top I finished yesterday. This is the lap quilt version of the quilt-along quilt (pattern available here) and is where my four extra versions of each cat block have been going.
