Lot's of Quilts to see

Two days into our fun shop hop and we are having lots of fun. Here is a group checking out Aunt Mary's addition. It's always fun for us to hear about all the great quilts the shops have done. I'm kind of biased. I like mine the best! (OK, so I haven't seen anyone else's.) I think the girls are all having a good time. It's not to late to get out on the road. This shop hop goes through Saturday. Hope to see you!!!

A Class with Reynola Packusich

I'm very excited to have my friend, Reynola Packusich coming to teach another class. This one is called "meandering Paths". She is truly an amazing teacher. She can teach color and design like nobody else. She teaches in such a way that you are excited to get playing with your fabric. Don't miss out! Call or stop by to sign up. Soon!
I have been very busy getting ready to go to the Q.A. show next week end (As a vendor) and the Tri County Shop hop that come up right after that. Much Excitement!!! Here is just one of the fun kits that we put together. I think it's sooo cute. Any Grandma would just love to wrap up a new grand baby in it. Most of the kits and quilts are already here in the shop and ready to go. SO, to beat the crowds stop by soon.

Lot's of new fabric!

Aunt Mary's is chalk full of new spring fabric! This is a new line from Mark Lapinsky (Quilters Home Magazine. What a Nut!) This one is called "Krakow" I lOVE IT! I hear he was at Expo in Puyallup, and was a show stopper. Well, I think the new line of fabric kind of reflects him, Edgy and fun.
We have lots of great fabrics in with big wonderful flowers. This is just a few of the new ones from Philip Jacobs with Westminster Fabrics. I just love to have a big piece to pet and look at. Who needs to cut it up? But if you have to, I have a new pattern in that uses these fabrics to make a really easy quilt.

Here's a new line from Timeless Treasures. I'ts very sweet and kind of funky. It's soooo nice to see some springy colors It's still a little early to get out in the yard, so maybe you can still have some sunny spring color in your world. Stop by and see.

Tri County Quilt Stroll

It's time again for the Tri county Shop Hop. this year our theme is "The Sky's the Limit". Last year was our first year and everyone had such a great time, even though it snowed. (This year it's going to be wonderful spring weather. We ordered it early!) We have 16 of the greatest quilt shops in the Northwest right here in our backyard. So come and explore! In each shop you will get a block pattern and see a quilt made up with all the blocks from each shop. Each of us is soooo different that you will be amazed at how different and original the quilts are. Here you see mine. I really had fun making it with the help of a few friends. Stop by the shop for more information.
