Yes, one of our favorite quilts is coming back. We found just the right fabrics, our dear friend Kathy Johnson was kind enough to make the quilt top and now its being quilted by our favorite custom quilters. Marcella and Margie of Crooked Creek Quilt Shop in Greenwood, AR are phenomenal custom quilters. If you have seen any of the quilts they have quilted for us (Oak Alley, Lancaster, Grace, Nellie’s Wedding Quilt, and Crazy Bet are just a few), then you know what I’m talking about – just gorgeous! They are so kind to us, too. We are trying to get new quilts done for Market and they graciously work with our crazy schedule. Watch for this beautiful new quilt to appear on our website in the near future. Here’s a sneak preview of the fabrics we used.
Stars Over Fort Sumter is just one of the oldies that will be returning in new fabrics. We’ve got all sorts of people doing all sorts of “redo’s” as we call them. I’ll keep you updated with sneak previews on their progress, but watch for a new Belle Meade, a new Vicksburg, and a new Glory Bound.
The weekend is coming and that means lots of sewing time – Web Sampler Finishing Quilt to finish, Bonnie Blue’s America to start – and I will definitely be enjoying my sewing room. Remember, we live in Texas – hot, humid Texas. Well our downstairs AC unit stopped working yesterday and probably won’t be fixed until Monday (insert groaning here) AND my sewing room is UPSTAIRS. We may have to take in a movie in the middle of the day, but hopefully the upstairs AC unit can keep up the good work and keep the upstairs fairly cool. Ah, the joys of living in Texas.
Paula hit the road yesterday for Jacksonville, FL. She’s doing a lecture and teaching a class at The Olde Green Cupboard. I’m so jealous. Gloria and the girls are some of the sweetest people you could ever meet and the shop is like dying and going to heaven. It’s a quilt/gift/antique store and they just decorated for Fall. It’s probably just as well I didn’t go; we would have needed the trailer to bring home all of the things I would have wanted to buy there.
Well, that’s all for today. Time to head to the warehouse and see what new goodies have arrived We love our UPS man.
