It's all about the Mini

The adorable Summer Crossing is all about summers at the lake. This adorable mini medallion by Susan Guzman features fabrics from Letters Home by Audrey Wright of Legacy Patterns. Find it in the Sept/Oct issue of McCall's Quilting. How many minis are you planning to make over the summer?

American Quilt Retailer

WOW! Just got a copy of American Quilt Retailer in the mail. I found Legacy Patterns in there 4 times. I knew one pattern was in their Quilt Market review (pic#2) Dwellings was made using Shibori from Anthology Fabrics. I also added a pic from the Anthology booth at market where the quilt was displayed.(pic#1) Shows my new pattern Anna's Runner using my new fabric line Redwork meets Bluework with RJR Fabrics. I also found an article on fabric folding (pic#3) the fabric on the right is from my line Little Big Quilts with RJR Fabrics. (pic#4) Is from an article about High Prairie Quilts in Denver and making kits. The kit shown is using Legacy Patterns Baked Potato and Tortilla Steamer pattern and corn fabric from RJR Fabrics. Super Big Thanks to AQR!

Civil War Battle of Lexington

More pictures from our weekend in Missouri. These are from Lexington,MO. The Anderson House was used as a hospital and through the trees you can see the Missouri River. The Battle of Lexington took place here during the Civil War. The house still shows where it was hit with cannon balls and bullets. I was also lucky enough to see Maggie Bonanomi at her studio The Purple Turnip. She was teaching a workshop and I was so excited to talk to her I forgot to take a picture. I did however buy some beautiful hand-dyed wool.

Model trains and grandkids-good times!

Went to Kansas City to see the grandkids this weekend and took them to Union Station to see the model train exhibit. Amazing details in this exhibit.

Back from Market

We are back from Spring Quilt Market and caught up on the shipping. I find that I return from market energized and with so many new ideas-now just need more hours in the day! Here are pics of the booth showcasing my new fabric line with RJR Fabrics. Redwork meets Bluework was very well received. Along with the new projects was the current BOM Letters Home. The last pic is the stitched ornaments designed with a Scandinavian theme. It was my way of honoring the area-many early settlers of the region came from the Scandinavian countries.  We were in Minneapolis, MN.

Retreat with friends!

I spent a great weekend quilting with ladies from the Country Rose Quilt Guild. I was one of 10 ladies that started the group many years ago. Now that I live close again I am happy to be "home". It was great to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones. I look forward to a fun year.
