Did you notice the silence?

I’m leaving on the jet plane…on my way to Houston…Sorry about that two weeks of no communication from me, it always happens this time of year, but not on purpose, getting ready for market and festival and the November wool box and our Primitive Christmas event…and now on the radar our the Special Edition Christmas wool box in December it has been an all out fast break…and I missed talking to you about all this good stuff….

I did manage to sneak off to Miranda Lambert in Milwaukee  with Amy and Ruby for a little birthday girl time…but that’s about it…Thanks to ALL of you who sent me Birthday Wishes on Social media…it was much appreciated…and fun to read.IMG_6534.jpeg

So a little about Houston and Fall Quilt Market…Our fabric line is called Indigo Gatherings…and you know it’s hard for me to talk about all the beautiful quilts and fabrics we are making BECAUSE the fabric does not come out til FEBRUARY!!!! So I’ll just touch on it a bit and will feed you more and more info this week and continue  until the time you can pre-order and don’t have to wait 5 months for it to arrive…So here is a peek…40 skus of yummy-ness…10 vintage prints- 10 creams. 30 blues in bout 5 shades of blue.

Allow yourself some time here to “look” at the whole line….ok…breathe…yes they are wonderful right?  Did you find a favorite?IMG_6622

Also did you know? (I kinda planned this) I knew Martingale was coming out with a Blue & White book featuring lots of great designers and their quilts…so I tried to time a blue and white fabric line to help add to our blue and white fabric collections!!!!Blue-and-White-Quilts

So they are not available “perfectly” at the same time…but the book will be here soon…Click HERE to order your and get one of the first copies available…I’m hoping the ladies at Martingale will bring me a few copies to sell in our Festival booth in Houston…fingers crossed and holding my breath….and then the fabrics will follow early next year…so after you get your book you can page through it and decide how many quilts you are going to make from it and re-appropriate some grocery money for a couple of months and buy lots of blue and white fabric! I’m kidding of course, but I know some of you have done this!!!  Some tell me they have stopped drinking Starbucks to save some money as well…we all have our ways of making sure we have lots of fabric in our lives….

Here is our quilt in the book…Sapphire Star, now before you get all bonkers about those triangles here’s a little story…Amy, my assistant helps me on some of my quilt projects…she will starch the fabrics and get those triangle papers stitched among 90 other things…well I was supposed to help assemble this but she finished the whole thing while I was on one of my teaching gigs…all without me!!! So in less than a week she put this together and I admit I feel a little left out, but it is what it is!!!  She has become a fabulous, expert piecer…She loves that triangle paper…1″ finished for this quilt.…We also have kits for this quilt, with the exact fabrics we used.  There is a special price ($10 off) on the book if you buy our kit with it Click Here for all the options.

I’m also in love with this quilt from the book….an antique from Jennifer Keltner’s collection.  These pieces are tiny!!!! Just how I like them!Pg32_AntiqueHuntersStar_B1521_BlueAndWhite_WEB
