Day One of Shopping!

I’m in love!!!  The new Hoffman batiks are incredible.  Yes we ordered EVERY one and several bolts of many.  They are expected in September.

Meet Lonni Rossi.Anna met her in the Andover both when she was taking this photo of one of her quilts.  What talent and inspiration.  And yeah, we ordered some her designs.

Island Batik’s new block of the month is drop dead gorgeous.  WOW WOW WOW.  The Rose of Sharon blocks are winning blocks from over 800 entries from 11 countries.  I might even applique to get a quilt that beautiful!  There is so much to this deal: Alex Anderson and Ricky TIms chose the blocks that were all designed in EQ6, there will be machine embroidery designs, quilting stencils, accu-quilt dies.  Did I say WOW?  And guess what?  Batiks Etcetera will be doing this winner as a BOM.  Stay Tuned.  Oh, and part of the proceeds benefits the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative.

Time for good girls to go to sleep!  Check us out tomorrow.




Yes, you wish you were here.  Maybe you could teach me how to work this laptop and how to do

a blog.Argh!!!!!  Every time I hit shift something weird happens.

Schoolhouse is amazing – 15 sessions from 10am -6pm.  we are sooo tired. But ready to sew!  Anna and I did different sessions so we have lots to share in the coming months.  Memory kick in now! 

I really loved Debbie Bowles’ session from Maple Island Quilts.  Debbie is who I want to be when I get my second chance.  She has 4 new patterns. My favorite is Jagged Edges.  Looks like pure sewing fun.  Get in the stash or buy some new fat 1/8’s or 1/4’s.  and sew, sew, sew.

Well Anna has received a chemical peel from my language.  So I’m going to bed!
