Pay Attention! There is lots of info here. :)
First of all, let's post a better picture of Polly, her family, and her lovely rug from last week's celebration.
This is what I have been working on. I'm ANXIOUSLY waiting for 2 quilts to get back from Kari, my long-armer. She is basting them and I can't wait to hand quilt them. In the meantime, I picked up this old chestnut that has been hanging around. It is for no purpose other than my pleasure in making it. The pattern is Love Letters from Blackbird Designs book - When the Cold Wind Blows. I believe the book is out of print. You have been warned (but they sold a ton of them - maybe you have it in your stash).
The fabric I used is ancient in the quilt fabric world. I think it was from over 7 years ago. It was Folklore by Whistler Studios for Windham fabrics. It's long gone. Believe me, I've looked. I used every inch of the blue I had. I have no idea how I'm going to quilt it. Any thoughts??
What else? I'm vending this weekend at the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Show. You can find all the info HERE.
I'll have books, patterns, what-nots, and lots and lots of Minick and Simpson fabric. Yes - yardage! I have lots of bolts from cutting kits. 2 yards here - 10 yards there….. lots and lots from Grant Park, Midwinter Reds, Indigo Crossing, Independence Trail, and many more. The yardage is priced to sell as the bolts are taking over a corner of the dining room. There is enough on many bolts for the backs of quilts. Here's your chance to stock up. Prints will be $6.00 per yard and wovens - at a CRAZY price of $4.00 per yard.
See you there!
