Marabella!

The other day I had the opportunity to talk on the phone with one of my favorite new pattern designers- KatiCupcake! Ok, so her name is not KatiCupcake, it's Amy- but her patterns are. Anyway, as we were chatting she mentioned her new line of fabric coming out from Henry Glass.
Of course I was pleasantly surprised and a bit sad because I would've known all about this fabric line had I been at Fall Market. But oh well- I know about it now!

This is the main print- I think it's absolutely darling. Wanna see more? Check this out! Now I have to tell you, Henry Glass website is a little different so I couldn't get the exact link. But if you look on the right hand side you'll see Marabella listed and you can click there to see swatches off all the prints. Also, there's a FREE PROJECT! (Yes, you have to find and click on that too.)

Can I just tell you that Amy is one of the nicest people...EVER! I kept tell her how much I loved her patterns and she kept saying the same thing right back to me. How sweet is that!? I seriously could've chatted with her all day long- except that both of us have crazy, busy lives trying to raise a family AND run a business. Anyway, I can't wait to meet this cool chick!

Well guess what? I'm designing a pattern for this fabric line! Yep, Amy said she would help me out a little with the 'materials' , if you know what I mean!? ;o) So I've been sketchin' away tryin to get it just right. Be on the lookout, this one's gonna be cute!

BTW- Does anyone known CINZIA!? She won first place in my contest last week and I have yet to hear from here. CINZIA, if you're out there, email me so I can send out your package of goodies!

A new pattern from you! I'm so excited. I'm expecting a new granddaughter in April and need a new quilt pattern. I've decided to send Happily Ever After to the long-arm quilter even though I have it all safety pinned and ready to go on my little Bernina. I just don't think I can do it justice where I'm a newbie quilter! I'll send you a picture when the quilter gets it done but it usually takes her a few months to finish quilting. Keep us informed on your new pattern! Cindy

I live in the same area as Amy and have met and chatted with her a few times. She really is so kind and as such a FUN quilt shop. I am very excited for her fabric to come out and also for your pattern!

With Amy's awesome fabric and your pattern, I'm sure it will be a winner! Can't wait to see what you do with Marabella!

Hey I’ve been following your blog for a while now!!! I think that this might be something you would be interested in. Maybe you’d like to participate or just do a little post about it! I’d love to see it be a great book ☺ (P.S. I’m not getting anything for passing the message along!)

I'm very pleased to organize the first-ever Quilter's Cookbook with recipes from quilters around the world. Everyone is welcome to submit a recipe, a photo of their favourite quilt and a story for inclusion in the Cookbook. The submission deadline is November 28, 2009.
The Quilter's Cookbook will be available for sale as a downloadable PDF file in early December 2009. The price will be determined based on the number of recipes submitted and the number of advertising sponsors.
The Cookbook is being created as a fundraising effort to help off-set some of the costs associated with running the Quilting Gallery site and to fund new community-based features planned for 2010. Please help support the community!
The theme for this Cookbook is "Quick and easy recipes, so we can get back to quilting!".
