Getting ready for Quilt Market

   Minnesota is starting to show it's beautiful fall colors. I cleaned out my summer plants and bought mums and added my silk flowers. I headed for the pumpkin patch this afternoon and picked out two pumpkins and now the house is feeling like fall.
   Now I have to get a quilt ready for fall market. It's all pieced and my dear friend Sherri Falls will be doing the quilting. When it's finished it will get shipped to Dallas to pack for market.
 This quilt is from our new batik line called "Sunrise Sunset". We used 15 out of the 30 prints. The purples and rich teals were selected for this one. The line also has some great light backgrounds and  includes some warmer tones in golds and browns. It will be in the stores spring 2012. We used a pattern from a great booklet by This and That Patterns called Moonlight Lodge. It was originally for our flannel line but as you can see it worked great for the batiks. The pattern from the book is called Around the Campfire. The little toes you see under the quilt are none other than the pattern designer herself, Sherri Falls.
    Although there are two of us designing fabrics, I will be the one writing the blogs. Lynn is still busy working everyday at a regular job and I on the other hand retired from my sales representative job of 17 years for Moda Fabrics.
     Watch for lots of fun updates on our fabric lines, new patterns and books coming out and we will be running a great contest in November with a spectacular prize. Don't forget to sign up as a follower so you don't miss out.
