Houston here we come

It is time for the annual pilgrimage to Houston for fall quilt market. Lindsey has an Ipad now and hopefully will be updating the blog to show you what beautiful finds there are for the coming year. We get so overwhelmed and excited with all the new gadgets and fabric that appear every year. I am wrapping up projects in the shop before we leave and am hopping to get my Lord's Acre quilt on the quilting frame before we leave. I am currently ripping out the border which just was not saying anything but "ugh" to me. Sometimes no border is better than an ugh border. I guess this just means I will need to make another project with the border fabric. I sure don't want any beautiful fabric to go to waste. I will try to post pictures later today of the Lord's Acre donation quilt.

Turning Twenty Quilt Completed

Hurray! The turning Twenty quilt I started a couple of years ago is finally completed. The queen size quilt, made for my neighbor, took a little longer than I anticipated. Sometimes "Life" gets in the way of completing projects. I used Martinuqe fabric designed by 3 Sisters for Moda including regular cotton fabric as well as the chenille and pintuck fabrics from the fabric collection. I hope my friend will be pleased with the fabric she chose for her quilt.
