We have a special guest coming in November!

Mark your calendars…for November 20, 2010, 11:00-1:00pm.  We are very excited to have Marci Baker from “Not Your Grandmother’s Tumbling Blocks” fame stopping by the shop.  She has a new book out “ABC 3-D” which many of you have seen and admired.  From this book and others she has published, Marci will show you just how easy her method is for constructing these quilts.  She also promises to have many of her samples to share.

ABC007               You may remember my sample from years ago…love, love, love this quilt!           IMG_1836   

Now I’ve started another one (Honeycomb Waffle, Too) from the new book, so I better get moving if it’s going to be ready for Marci’s visit!!

The simple 9-patch is good!

Wow….has it been almost 5 months since I posted anything?  Where did the summer go…oh let me guess between two very special wedding quilts, preparing for the Shop Hop, weeding, raking up acorns…again and again, still loving my new clothesline and trying to keep up with our “celebrate summer 9-patch challenge” it simply evaporated!!

So now the newlyweds are honeymooning, the Shop Hop is a happy memory, the weeds are pretty much dead, raking is still ahead…again, and I still love my clothesline!  So I thought it about time I show off those terrific quilts from the 9-patch challenge!!



What will next summer bring?


until next time……………..
