It’s Been Almost A Month Since Shipshewana

Advertisements:

I know it seems like I've fallen off the face of the earth but I really haven't. It's just been one deadline after another and as my dear friend Brenda said "you need an assistant". Problem is, I can't afford to hire one so it's just lil' ol' me for now.

If you haven't already downloaded them, I did post the May block for the Beyond the Cherry Trees quilt and Sally Post Floral Sampler. That leaves finishing the Shipshewana Amish Mystery quilt and the Charm Square Twist for the So Sew Easy Schlep Bag as unfinished promises.




I received the first strike-offs for the Petticoats & Polka Dots fabric. I can't tell you what a strange feeling it is to see your name printed on the selvege.
Quilt Market is taking place next week in Minneapolis so be sure to ask your favorite shop owner to stop by the Blue Hill Fabrics booth and place their order for the whole collection. It will be shipping in September. They should also ask to see my second line "Lady Grace"!



I've been busy working on samples for the booth. It seems no matter how much you think you've figured it all out ahead of time there's still that last minute craziness getting ready for market. I can tell you that all of the orders from the Online Store have been sent out.

I'll show you pictures of what I've made as soon as I can but while you're waiting, grab a cup of coffee and take a look at my last couple of days in Shipshewana. I spent time at Sarah Davis Ltd. and then checked out some of the great quilt kits you can get at Lolly's Fabrics.

    I’m thoroughly enjoying the Beyond The Cherry Trees block. Just a few blossoms left to do on block 8. Congratulations on your upcoming Market debut- such an exciting (and busy!) time.

    I can’t wait to pick up some of your fabric line–it’s wonderful Gay. I may just have to start the Midget blocks all over again when it comes in!!
