We Are Back From Market

Well we survived the Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh! We had such a wonderful day. There were so many new things to see we had a hard time keeping up.We even stopped for supper on the way home at a wonderful Italian place that had been featured on Food Networks show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." I will let you know later the actual name of it, my memory is fading with age. The food was wonderful and the lady that owns it "Rose" was just delightful she is 79 and works every day. I hope I am as fortunate!
We purchased some new patterns from Clothesline Quilts and will have all 12 of their Civil War Battle Series quilts hanging for our Fall Open House in September they are beautiful designs that look really complicated but are easy to make! Right up my alley!
Jo Morton has a new book"Vintage Journey". There is the cutest table runner in the book using Cindy Blackbergs apple core rubber stamp. We should have our hands on the book this coming week and are ordering the rubber stamp for the templates this week. Jo also has several new lines of fabrics coming , needless tho say we ordered them all!
We have a few autographed copies of Primitive Gatherings new book "Autumn Gatherings" in the shop for sale, and more on order. This is one of the best books I have seen is a long time. Fall projects are my favorite to make, so I brought home the fabrics to make a small quilt called "Turkey Tracks" from Autumn Gatherings with any luck I will put it together this weekend. Blackberry Primitives had Maggie Bonanomi design a stunning wool quilt called "SettlersPride". For those of you not familiar with Maggies designs you have been missing the boat. She is a true artist and designs the most beautiful things. We will be doing this quilt as a block of the month starting this fall. Watch here and your newsletter for more details.
Our kitty "Delilah" says thank for all your prayers, she is feeling much better, but still does not like taking her medicine.
As always we are grateful to you for sharing your shopping dollars with us.
There are many other new things coming, so stop in the shop soon so we can catch up!
