Remember how I said I would take pictures? You can imagine how that went. If I wasn't too busy to take pictures, I was too exhausted. Or laughing too hard. It was grand.
We then had a "Schoolhouse" where we GOT COMFY WITH MODA. Pajamas were worn in public.
Later that evening was Sample Spree where the elegant Mr. Veronelli was supplying all our needs for Aurifil thread.
There was a rumor that started here. Something about me, a physical altercation, and bundles of Moda Fabric. It isn't true. The true story is boring. I slipped in the shower and thus greeted lots and lots of customers all weekend with a shiner. It was a doozy.
I'm fine. It doesn't hurt at all and I was seen by a doctor. End of story.
All it is now is the start of the best Halloween costume ever. I haven't decided if I should be Evel Kneivel or an eggplant. But back to what we went to Houston for........
I took this photo from the Fat Quarter Shop who attended our Schoolhouse. It actually is the best photo (color and texture) of our new Austin Bluebird Sampler quilt. Thanks!
This quilt, either in a large kit - or broken up into a Block Of The Month - will soon be appearing in all your favorite quilt shops.
We are also going to have THIS in our Easy store!
It the Austin Bluebird Sampler Aurifil Thead Kit. It has 6 colors - each in 2 different weights. 50wt for piecing and appliqué and 12wt for embroidery and big stitch hand quilting. The 12 spool kit is here. We have a very limited supply, but more are on their way.
And for all of you who patiently waited, we have a new supply of Mrs. Billings Coverlet patterns and kits! Some other great hand piecing patterns from Somerset Patchwork are here too.
Oh, I almost forgot. I have 2 little packages of goodies that I brought home from Houston. Comment here and you could win some special things from Moda and Aurifil. We'll pick 2 winners on Saturday November 1st.
