Lungile wins a ribbon at SA Quilt Show

I just received an e mail today with the wonderful news that Lungile won a ribbon at the local quilt show in South Africa. Her daughter Nosipho also entered a quilt and won a ribbon too. The small photo shows the newspaper clipping about the quilt show and ribbons. If you click on the photo you can read the article.

Back from Kansas/ MQS

I am home from my trip to Machine Quilter's Showcase.  Have tons of new thread, and so many new quilting patterns.  Will be posting them over the next few weeks for you to see.  Here are some of the patterns I bought while at MQS.  I can't wait to start quilting them!

Hope everyone had a chance to get out to all the stores for the Spring Quilter's Shop Tour this past weekend.  I wanted to show you a photo of the really adorable dinosaur quilt at Quilts and Calicos in Exeter.  I machine quilted it with a stegosaurus pattern and it would be so cute for a little boy in your family! 

Call Linda and pick one up before they are all sold out.............

I have already started packing, making my shopping list and am trying to get everything organized for my trip to Kansas.  Jane and I will be going to MQS- the biggest machine quilting show/ conference in the US.  We will both be taking classes, seeing the new quilting techniques, buying tons of thread and patterns and having a great time away!  

Let the countdown begin...........

After we return I will post photos and a recap of our trip.  

ONE WEEK TO GO...............
