We are becoming famous in the quilt blog world for something that that is increasingly hard to find……bad photos.
And with no delay, here are some more. (Even Gibby complained about his unflattering picture on the last post. I have lots of excuses. First is that I'm a lousy photographer. Second is that I am knee deep in stuff. 3rd is that for some reason my phone has stopped all communication with my iMac. I can't even edit my totally inadequate pictures. )…..
This is a pile of half square triangles that will turn into the last border of the last quilt of our new fabric collection. The fabric collection is called Crazy For Red!
We're pretty excited about it. It the same shades and hues of Midwinter Reds with lots more prints, people! They will fit right in, assuming you have any Midwinter Reds left. If you missed out on Midwinter Reds - here is your chance.
Are you getting a bit ahead of yourself? I empathize. Lexington hasn't left the warehouse yet and we are making patterns and quilts with this new group. So, not to be redundant, but to explain…. Lexington will ship out next month. Crazy For Red will go out 3 months after that. In the meantime, we are creating like mad.
Oh, what else showed up to add to the chaos??? These wonderful scraps of Crazy For Red...
These have your name written all over them, don't they?
So, first things first. It's give-away time. Comment on this post and you can get a priority mail box jammed packed with Crazy For Red strips. Or - you could win this. A fat quarter collection of every print in the Lexington group.
Are you confused? Me too. Just know that if I draw your name (post before midnight July 1st) you will get a box of Minick and Simpson fabric - either Lexington or Crazy For Red.
Want to see some more? This is Zip Code made with Crazy For Red. It's going off to Kari, my expert machine quilter. She is only going to baste this one. I'm looking forward to showing you my progress on this one as I hand quilt it.
What else??? Right after I finish the last border on the last quilt and box them all up, I'm sending out the first installment of the Austin Bluebird Sampler Block of the Month. Yep, if you signed up - expect your first package in about a week. I would say next weekend, but since it's the 4th - mail will be held up a bit.
Remember, make a comment here and you could be a winner of either Lexington or Crazy For Red fabric….
