Done is Wonderful!!

Indeed, Done is Wonderful!!

I am heading to Fedex to ship a quilt to Houston 
for wholesale quilt market.

Late availability of fabrics made this a "must do" in just a few days.
A big thanks to Laurel Hahn for quilting this one yesterday.

The quilt - "Spooling Around" -  is designed by Denyse Schmidt 
for Free Spirit Fabrics.
The new fabric line is called "Ansonia".

This will be sold in a kit with 575 pre-cut small triangles
and 37 pre-cut large triangles.

I had to cut my own!!  Lots of work on this one!

I also made a quilt using a new line from Free Spirit - 

Marjolein's Garden.

The center is a cheater panel.  When I first saw the thumbnail sketches,
 I thought it was going to be smaller.  
I was very surprised when the fabrics arrived!

Thanks to Laurel Hahn for the quilting.  
The finished quit really is square - just hard to photograph!!

Every now and then, I am asked to do something other than a quilt.

These pillows are made from a new Free Spirit fabric line 
designed by Joel Dewberry
called "Botanique".
I loved working with these fabrics.
The colors and designs are spot on!!
I also made a dress (ugh) and a bag.

This Modern Nine Patch is made from
Michael Miller chevron fabrics and features their Cotton Couture Solids.

I am traveling to Houston on Saturday
to attend wholesale quilt market.

I have not been for several years, so it will be fun to see what the trends are!

Stay tuned.......
