A Little Eye Candy

Well, as I sat here this morning trying to patiently wait for the Fed Ex truck to get here and bring me a replacement part for my printer - I received a few fun photos on FaceBook!  Look at this eye candy!  My Aunt has been one busy person lately!

This photo above is from a pattern that appeared in the May/June 2008 issue of Fons & Porters Love Of Quilting Magazine!  Isn't it pretty!  This is one that is on my "to-do" list for sure! It's called "Spin Wheel".

Oh and what do we have here!  This is from one of my patterns that was in the Fall 2008 issue of Quilts & More magazine! It's called Ease into Autumn!  So pretty!

And this one above is a must make too!  I love it - but I'm having a memory lapse and can't remember the name of it!

Look at the pinks and browns!  OOOOO - I have to get this pattern, I know I've seen it somewhere but my mind is blank - I've got a case of what we in the industry call "Quilt Market Brain" right now!  LOL

This one is going to be a beauty when it's finished!  Pinks and yellows- yum!  How delicate looking!

And look at these pretty little victorian boots!  These just scream my Aunt completely! They are so precious!

And these pretty blocks remind me of my Grandma.  She made a quilt for me with a similar block on it and I just treasure it!  I wish I could get pictures of all the quilts my Grandma made for each of her grandbabies.  What a nice photo album that would make.  She made a lot of quilts in her lifetime and I would give anything to be able to see them all now.
Well, my Aunt has been pretty busy lately making lots of beautiful quilts!  Wow - I need to get down there for a visit soon and see these gems in person!  Keep sewing Aunt Julie!  Love you!

Home To Roost & Blue Basket Blocks

About 4 or 5 months ago I was checking out various  fabric companies websites for any new exciting fabric that would be coming out in the future (it's here now!  LOL)

Anyhow, Home To Roost designed by Renee Nanneman was one of my exciting finds.  These 2 fabrics alone sold me on this fabric collection.

Are those not yummy!  Those two "toile - ish" type fabrics cinched the deal for me.  I love them. "Toile -ish"  - I am quite sure that is not a word, but it sounds good.  Those fabric remind me of a colorful toile!

You can few the bolts of fabric that we received from this collection here:

The fabric arrived last week and it just keeps calling my name but I just cannot go and play with it just yet.  Goodness - I leave for Quilt Market in less than 2 weeks and the blue basket quilt is pouting because it wants to be finished so that it can come out and play with everyone!  :O}

Well, dearest blue baskets - you will be finished today.  Your instructions are on their way to completion and all my quiltie friends can enjoy making you very, very soon.

Basket Blocks

30 little basket blocks - Done!  Now on to laying them all out for the newest and last quilt pattern for Spring Quilt Market!

Our Booth In Paducah!

Well, good morning everyone!  I realized late last night that I have been a little quiet on my blog!  I am busy getting ready for quilt market as is the rest of the quilting industry.  I have been working on finishing up my final design for this show - a cute smaller blue and white basket quilt!  Maybe if my feeble mind can remember - I'll take a pic of one of the blocks later on and give you all a sneak peek!

Lots of people have been asking if I took any pictures of my booth in Paducah.  Yes - we did!  And those are the only pictures I have of the entire show in Paducah.  I never made it outside the Kentucky Oaks Mall to see any of the rest of the show.  Sad but true.... Did we ever have fun in Paducah though!  Well worth it!

Here is a picture of my triple booth in Paducah on day four - which would have been Friday.  This was the first day I actually remembered to take pictures and it's looking rather bare in the booth!  This was taken first thing in the morning prior to my cleaning up a bit also!
