June 2010

Holy Mackerel! It took me a flippin' year to finish another quilt! How embarrassing.
This is the autograph quilt I donated to the Tri-County Quilt Guild as a little fund-raiser.
It's 34" square and the border fabrics are from the Kashmir ll collection from Sentimental Studios by Moda.

It has the following celebrity quilters' autographs: Linda Taylor, Paula Nadelstern, Ricky Tims, Nancy Zieman, Marti Michell, Eleanor Peace Bailey, Linda Jenkins, Becky Goldsmith, Charlotte Angotti, Brenda Papadakis, Jamie Wallen, Mark Lipinski,Harriet Hargrave, Pepper Cory, and Judith Baker Montano.
Hopefully my Quilt Completion Track Record will improve in 2010. Except that since I've already used up 6 months...probably not.

It's Official!

My good friend Deb is opening her own quilt shop in Tomball this summer! It's going to be called QUILTERS CROSSING, and will be located in the Old Town Tomball section of downtown, right across from Relics by the Railroad and The Whistle Stop Tea Room. It's the perfect spot, with several excellent restaurants within walking distance. She'll have 2 buildings: one for the quilt shop, longarm quilting and machine sales, and one for the classroom.
She and her friends are busy painting, ordering fixtures, and most importantly: ordering fabric!
Stay tuned for an update with more photos, and when they set a date for the opening, you'll be the 2nd to know!
