Two Lovebirds...

I've got a few new patterns to show you!  These are both quick finishes for wool applique, applique and punchneedle.  So much fun to stitch and always a good thing when it's a quick finish!  You can buy them HERE if you are interested.  We've got them listed on the Wool Quilts pag, the Quilts page and the Punchneedle Page.  We have also added the cutest Sheep Scissors to the Notions page.  They are so sharp and really cut threads, yarn and wool very well!!  Have fun shopping!

 Bunchberry Blooms Tablerunner

We've just returned from Quilt Market in Portland.  It was lovely weather and we enjoyed walking around the hotel for dinner and getting to the convention.  The blooms were lovely.  Much more abundant than here in Des Moines at the time we were there!  

The booth went together well and we enjoyed meeting new shop owners from the north west as well as seeing a few familiar faces from other shop owners in the US and around the world.  

You might notice 24 folds of fabric in the top picture...it's Ginger & Spice designed by "Me" for Blank Quilting Corporation!  It was so very fun to get my hands on the real deal and make that little quilt on the front of the table just before Market!  The fabric feels very nice and was so easy to work with!!  Now I can't wait to get my hands on a little bit more so I can make something a little larger.  

The fabrics are just a bit more muted in person than in this picture.  I'm so very happy with how they turned out!  I made my first few hexies with these fabrics at the Tulsa show last weekend and it was pretty exciting!  Haha...just a few hexies exciting?  Yes for sure!!  The pattern isn't quite complete for the quilt on the table so I will wait to show you that!

The Tulsa quilt show was a huge success.  Those ladies do enjoy the shopping and chatting at a quilt show!!  So fun!  We enjoyed showing them our new goodies since we were there last and it was so nice to see some friendly smiles.  I saved a few old quilts and have washed them so they are all nice and fresh smelling now.  I love to save an old quilt now and then!

Next up is the Minnesota Quilters Show in St. Cloud June 14-16.   After that is Shipshewanna, Indiana June 20-23.  We hope to see some of you there!!

Take care and thank you for stopping by,
