It's The Little Things

I should be doing a lot of things.  I have much to get done and not very much time to do it in, but I played hooky today.  The AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids is today (and tomorrow and Saturday).  Having never made it to Paducah, I thought I should go to this one as it is so close.  2 measly hours of driving on a beautiful day (each way) - how could I resist?

The show was grand and the vendors were sublime.  I saw quite a few people that I know.  Lisa,  Sue and crew, and Deb to name just a few.  The shopping was fun.  It was nice to be on the other side of the vendor table for a change.  I picked up a few modest treasures.  
A few spools of thread, some straw needles for appliqué, and a pair of Karen Kay Buckley scissors. A student had a pair in the class I taught last week - awesome!  They have teeny tiny serrated edges for a good accurate "bite" when clipping appliqué.  Underneath it all is a piece of antique (1850's) Japanese indigo fabric.  I'm hoping I can do it justice and turn it into a pincushion for our upcoming book.  Oh, I was also on a hunt to find a tailor's thimble for Glenn.  Score!

We hand-quilters have to shop for each other occasionally.

What else is happening??  While our Independence Trail fabric collection is in the process of shipping to quilt shops world-wide - our next collection has shipped to us!  This one will be in the next Moda catalog and the Moda sales force will be showing it in a few weeks.  You can expect this to be in your quilt shops in February.  Here is Indigo Crossing.....
Polly and I are very excited about our Indigo and cream collection.  There are 4 quilts in the process of being made and I'm sort of behind schedule.  I need to get back to work.  This time, Moda sent a box of fabric scraps to Polly.  You know, the huge box of strips cut that are left over after they make the salesman sample cards...... Polly saw the pictures of the boxes I have gotten in the past, but it's still a shock to see that huge box, isn't it Polly?  So, Polly would like you to know that there are 3 LARGE Priority Mail boxes crammed with scraps that need a home.    Comment on Indigo Crossing, or big AQS Quilt Shows, or anything at all before midnight Sunday August 26th, and it could be yours.

Oh, my! Such gorgeous indigos and creams to add to my collection--I'm determined to use them...someday. I'm a transplanted Michigander who lives just north of Naples. Polly, I work in North Naples near Pelican Bay so I could save you the postage by picking up the box at your home....just saying...

Gayle said...

Those little scissors you bought sound awesome - I'll have to check my LQS to see if I can find a pair for myself!

MJinMichigan said...

I love blue and white fabric so would love to win some scraps! The AQS show was nice and I saw you at the Primitive Gatherings booth. It looked like the show was a success so hopefully it will be there for many years.

Becky said...

Glad that you were able to play hooky and attend the Quilt Show. Independence Trail - wow, just wow!

Also, I actually just purchased the independence trail charm packs from my local sewing store! I loved the fabric so much that I came over to your blog to see more about the creator. So this is my first official post on any blog-ever!

Haven't seen the scissors before. I hope you will give us a review of them!

Thanks!

Janet said...

Love the new Indigo fabric line but I love all of your lines. There is just something about the blues and reds in them that i can't resist. What is a tailors thimble? Guess I will have to Google it.
Janet

Beth said...

I love the antique look of these fabrics - thank you for sharing the scraps - what fun

badlandsquilts said...

LOVE the blue and cream fabric! There was a blue and cream quilt featured on the cover an American Quilting (I think?) magazine maybe 2 1/2 years ago (and I also think it used your fabric)... I'm off to dig it out and will wait for new collection!

Paula said...

I can think of several old fashion quilts that would be absolutely beautiful in those fabrics. I am so excited to just have the chance to win those fabrics. Thank you. I would just die if I won!

Anonymous said...

Your scraps would play well with mine please and thank you!
This is better than the lotto!

Recognize the Jean Lyle needlecases where you purchased the thimble -- hope you gave their needles a try -- they are wonderful!

Glenda in Florida said...

I love the glimpe of Indigo Crossing--they are exactly the sort of fabrics that I choose. Hope my LQS stocks them if I don't win some scraps.

dortha said...

Would love the scraps. I love to go to Paducah. Love your fabric.

emmy said...

I've never seen a shade of blue I didn't love; and with all the creams and tans, it will make a lovely quilt.
Thank you for the giveaway.

Elaine P. said...

Beautiful fabrics! I love to make scrap quilts so these would be just lovely to add to my stash.

Betweens said...

those applique scissors are also good for fraying the help with binding the cut edges when cutting your applique. I use them all the time with my needleturn.
I was lucky to have a class with her too...living in Ontario Canada.
I love indigo and creams and whites I am wondering what 4quilts you are putting together right now..you have kept us in suspence.

Mary Jorgensen said...

The new fabric line is wonderful! Love those deep blues and creams together. Thank you so much for the great giveaway,
Mary

Debra said...

The navy and cream combination is my favorite!! I've never been to an AQS show and was thrilled to hear that one was coming to Grand Rapids (within 3 hrs. of home), but then found out that it's the first week of school!! So I guess I'll save that bucket list item for teacher retirement! Can't wait for your fabric to hit the stores!

Phyllis said...

I love the navy and cream combination.I'm always a fan of blue anyhow. This is a great collection

Patti said...

Love the fabric. A blue and cream quilt is on my list of quilts that I would like to make. I know I could make a good home for some of your fabric. And it doesn't matter that I am getting ready to move, I will move it with me! No fabric to be left behind. Thanks for a chance.

Dee said...

I'm looking forward to the yardage coming out for Independence Trail and I can see that I'll be looking forward to Indigo Crossing as well! I was fortunate to get to go to the Paducah show several years ago with a few quilting friends. We had a blast. It was quite a long trip, but some great memories.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

You are going to love your Karen Kay Buckley scissors! I've had mine about a year and can't go without them. I also have the bigger version--same serrated edge only much larger.
The new fabric is to die for--you are killing me!! I am trying SO hard not to add to my stash this year, but it's just not working out...

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Oh I just love the indigo collection! I would gleefully give those scraps a new home and a new quilt. :-) It looks like your new threads are on wooden spools~ is wood making a comeback? Very cool! Thanks so much for the chance!!

krisgray said...

The new collection is lovely! Blue is my fave and my stash really needs some pretty neutrals. It has been a while since I have been to a big show, hoping to go to Paducah next spring.

ledamewood said...

I love Indigo Crossing, and would be honored to win your scraps and create something beautiful with them. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win.

My mind is spinning...so many quilt ideas for your Indigo Crossing fabric line. I need that fabric now while the mind is on a roll. Thank you for designing such gorgeous fabric. soardkg@fuse.net

I have a layer cake of Indepedence Trail that I want to cut into this weekend. It's gorgeous! I can't wait to get my hands on IndigoCrossing. I love blue and cream together!

Quilting by the Lake said...

Oh!!! Indigo Crossing... first look at it reminds me of the colors in your String Star quilt....hmmm.. that would be perfect for a box of scraps! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

Carol said...

Indigo Crossing looks wonderful, as do the scraps.

Bev said...

I just fell in love with Independence Trail and now there's another line to drool over....love it! Headed for Grand Rapids tomorrow to see the show. I feel so lucky to only be an hour away in Kalamazoo.

Doodlebug Gail said...

Indigo Crossing looks absolutely divine ..... 2 colour quilts are always so striking and I have no doubt that any quilt using Indigo Crossing is going to be spectacular.

quiltnmaryf said...

Love, love the fabric...will be anxious to get my hands on it in the local shop!

Unknown said...

I love your new collection. There's something about indigo...I sure hope to get up to G. R. to the show this week end.

Debbie said...

What great fabric. And I'm on my way to find a pair of those scissors.

kathy said...

this is my year of the indigo and i will need to have some of this fabric to round out my collection. i have already done 2 and 2 more are in the works. thanks for the chance to win the fabric

Dora, the Quilter said...

Oh, my! The Indigo Crossing fabric brings back so many memories...of a lot of vintage and antique quilts...and a triple Irish chain made in OK in 1903 that inspired my own blue and white triple Irish Chain with the hand pieced border that I spent months working on. When my mom moved back East, she took it with her, and it has disappeared. I've considered making another, and this collection looks very inspiring.

Smeek said...

OOOOOh! I love the new fabric!
Blue & white what could be better.
Hope I win.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

These colors are beautiful. I have been to the Paducah Quilt show twice and it is so thrilling to go and see all the beautiful quilts and visit so many vendors from all over the US. I'm hoping to go again in 2013 with my 3 quilting buddies. It's always more fun to go with a buddy :-) Thanks so much for sharing the scraps!

Pat said...

Hi Laurie, Love your new collection!!! I enjoyed Paducah so much even more than Houston but both are awesome.Love me some blue and cream and would be thrilled to win some.

Anita said...

Wow, that's a huge box of scraps!! As soon as I saw your collection I fell in love...reminds me of the butternut and blue a few years back. Love the combination, can't wait to snatch some up in stores..or in scraps :)

Carrie said...

It's even better than the wonderfulness I imagined when I thought about "Indigo Crossing"! It's yummy and fabulous and I look forward to seeing the awesome quilts I know you've got in the works.

Just so you know... I am not above bribery. Threats. Theft. Or blackmail. :)

Carrie said...

Oh... I've been to Paducah but not to PADUCAH. Meaning, I've been to the town but not to the show. Does this mean you'll take pity on me?

Yeah... add whining to the list above. :)

lettielulu said...

How much fun to be on the shopper side of the table & not worrying about all the little things that need to get done!! You will love those scissors, they are wonderful. I have a love affair going with indigos right now. They are gorgeous & can range in shades so it makes pieces come alive in applique or piecing. Thanks for the chance to win. I am smack dab in the middle of the country & so all the shows are hours away from me. I have heard such great things about the quilts you are all seeing at the Michigan show. I even asked a blogger to take a picture of one of the quilts. Fun to see things through others eyes!! I am only 50 miles away from the IQSC, do I really shouldn't complain!! I just need to get out a see a big show.

Thanks for the chance.

Beautiful fabric, Laurie! I so wanted to go the AQS quilt show in Grand Rapids...being so close and all. But I forgot about it and committed my time to something else. I will go next next year I hope, planning to put it on my calender first. I wonder if it will be in Grand Rapids again. I've always wanted to go to Paducah also, but haven't made it there yet either!

Would LOVE to win one of the boxes of fabric scraps! Making Laurie's Lemoyne Star String Quilt from your Everyday Folk Art book is on my bucket list. Thanks for the chance to win!

Thanks for the contest.

I love to go to the quilt shows. I have been to Paducah several times and always find lots of things to buy. I would love a bag of scraps.

I would love to make something with your indigos and creams. I just got home from the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids too, and it was super!

Thanks for the opportunity to win this wonderful collection. Blue is my favorite color, especially in a 2 color quilt!

Love the fabrics!! They would look soooo awesome in my rag rugs. Any scrappy strips would be a blessing.
Thanks, Lynnette
