The New Year round-up....


Happy New Year everybody!

For me this is the time of year to take stock—literally doing inventory in the store—but also figuratively—looking back on the year. So I thought I’d kick off this first blog of 2008 with a little nice visual candy…highlights if you will…from 2007.




Meet my niece Colleen Cogley. For Christmas I gave her the Amy Butler “Charm” quilt I made two years ago. I loved this quilt and wanted it to go to someone really special—and now it has! Enjoy Colleen—this looks great on your bed.

Colleen is a twin.  I got her brother's baby quilt done years ago when they we're both babies.  But I didn't get Colleen's done, and then of course you know what happened, she got too big for the baby quilt.  I had to make something bigger--but time--where to find the time.  And not once did Colleen nag me--not once!  She's a doll.  And now her patience has paid off.  Lots of people wanted to buy this quilt--but I said no--this one's for Colleen!

Okay, can we just say that Jenn is really into quilting!



Evidence—on the left--a close-up of the fabulous tattoo she got on her left shoulder last summer. Painful--perhaps--but sometimes we all suffer for our art!






Barter anyone?  Here's a pic of the quilt Jenn made for her tattoo artist as payment for a lifelong thrill! Art for art—good deal.





Wow, holy cow and gadzooks! The most fabulous T-shirt quilt I’ve ever seen!

The piecing is spectacular—right on the money. And to think this was Paul’s very first quilt. Folks—even the back is fussy cut and pieced! A great job!!!!









Stack-n-Whack Tuscan style…another incredible quilt from Ron Bedard! Enough said.




Finally, one of my quilts…my own little baby Spot on Retro quilt. I designed this pattern last year and made a larger grown up version of it for the shop in Denyse Schmidt’s red and aqua Flea Market Fancy fabrics. Sadly those fabrics went out of print quickly. But the new Katie Jump Rope looked like fun, so I recreated the quilt in brown, yellow, green and a bright bold orange! And I did it for little ones. Now we’re producing the pattern as part of our Quiltology learn to quilt series—easy and fun—that’s the goal here!

All the best in 2008!
