Less than 3 weeks away....
Houston here we come....
8 days of drooling....
fabric, patterns, kits, demonstrations, embellishments
and oh so gorgeous quilts.
I am so excited....can you tell?
Are you going?
I blogged about my latest adventure on my blog....
Since I work full time I don't have time to finish a lot of complicated quilts....
enter rag quilts...
I can put them together...wash them...dry them...and I have a precious quilt.
When we were cleaning up at the shop the other day, Brenda found an entire box of books that she had forgotten about. I fell in love with the Strawberry Shortcake slapplique and I tried it. It was so easy and fast.
Turning Twenty Slapplique by Tricia Cribbs.
I love this fabric line, Olivia by Michele D'Amore for Benartex, Inc.
Beautiful and delicate handkerchiefs were the inspiration for this collection by Michele D’ Amore. Olivia has lush cabbage roses, elegant paisleys and plaids.
I could just see this soft antique looking fabric in a soft lap throw....
so I made a sample block.
By the way....Mamas Quilt Shop...has seven bolts of this wonderful fabric!
Now this is a 2009 book...but it is fabulous for those of us with small amounts of time. There are 6 patterns in this book and all are easy to make. Brenda is selling these for $12.00 plus shipping.
But wait....don't tell Brenda...
I am giving away a copy!
And enough fabric to make your own sample block!
Just like mine!
