For some reason, I never get any comments. I'm trying to figure out why this is. I think it's because there are already no comments so bloggers don't feel like they can leave one. But guess what? I LOVE comments. Please, let me know what you think. I would love to hear from any and all of you! Thanks. Can't wait to read from you soon.

I am so excited about a couple new grabs. My awesome friend Shasta at Gracie Lou's http://www.gracielousquiltshoppe.com/ parted again with some of her stash from market. I love Lila Tueller's new line Soire'e (available next spring). It is beautiful! Already I have 2 fabulous designs that are going to be a MUST HAVE for spring! Here's a peak at what the fabric looks like, but I didn't get jelly-rolls, I got FAT QUARTERS! But that's not all!!!
She also parted with her FQ pack of Arcadia. Can I just tell you, this fabric is beautiful. And the cool thing is that it works in any quilt. Don't you hate trying to find nice fabric for a masculine quilt that doesn't have cowboys on it? Well this fabric is perfect. My picture doesn't do it justice, but you can get an idea. Again, already 2 patterns (almost 3, just tweaking it a little) ready to ship before this fabric even hits the shelves. I promise, you're going to want these patterns!

My brain is bursting with new ideas. In the past 3 days I've thought of about 8 new patterns. It's so funny how that happens. I can go a couple of weeks with only a possible idea here and there, usually they're not good enough to even jot down on paper. Then, the exact opposite can happen, like right now. Sometimes I'm just doing my daily chores around the house and BAM! I better find some paper quick 'cuz I just got a good one. All I can say is maybe a couple of these never make it to the sewing machine, but most of them look promising. The coolest part...NEW PATTERNS for you! Keep your eyes open, they're just around the corner.

Quilt Market has come and gone. So many shops asked us if we were going to be there. Unfortunately the rules and regulations require that we be in business for at least a year. Since we barely got our start in April, we couldn't go. I was so bummed. I hated missing out on that sneak peak of all the fabulous fabric to come next year.
But GUESS WHAT!?
Thanks to an awesome friend who has been a huge catalyst in getting us going with these patterns, I was able to score NEPTUNE by TULA PINK for Moda. Here's a little glance. If you haven't seen it, you should check it out. I absolutely LOVE IT! And because I just can't stand to let it sit I've already designed 3 Patterns from this fabric!
You better keep checking back, I'll be posting pictures as soon as they're quilted!
(p.s. I'm working on scoring more 'sample spree' fabric....I'll keep you posted)
