I recently got this pattern from a local shop, Pine Needles. It is a great store with a wonderful selection of patterns, fabrics and ideas. I saw pictures of this caddy made on their blog. I would swipe the cute pictures to show you here but I didn't have Sandra's permission. Click the link to their blog to see how cute this is. And I do have some bits of this fabric left I could use to make this project.
When I was at Material Girls sale last week I was talking to Nadine about market and I picked up a couple new magazines. I love the Quilt Sampler issue that features shops. I just love to read and look at what shops feature across the USA.
Kari Ramsay is a local gal to Utah and a great designer. She has a company called Fresh Cut Patterns and she put out a new book recently.
When I saw this quilt I immediately wanted to make it. It reminds me of a fun outdoor scene behind a window pane. Kari has a great mix of quilts and accessories in this book. Wonderful book.
This is a book I've had for a while but I keep looking at it rather than put it on the shelf. I'm always wanting to improve my machine quilting and this book had a few ideas.
I'm constantly afraid to try something new on a quilt top I've spent so much time making. But I need to break out of my shell and try new techniques.
Lori Holt, my wonderful BFF, just completed this quilt and has it hanging in her family room. You simply must see it. I love it so much. Click now! I really like this pattern from Fig Tree Quilts that Lori used. I love that the baskets are floating so your points don't have any chance of getting cut off. And I really like the blocks set on point. Lori did such a nice job interpreting her version of the Fig Tree pattern.
I'm so excited for my friend Jill Finley's new book. Jill lives very close to me is one of the most sharing and caring people and so remarkable at her quilting business. She's a smart lady and I really admire how she has marketed her company Jillily Studio and gone national. But behind Jill's success is real talent. Her book is fantastic.
I've heard Jill's lecture about how she has organized family quilt retreats and I have wanted to know more about it. It is so impressive to me what Jill has accomplished with her family retreats. Even the young girls with no sewing experience have been making quilts.
I'm planning on hosting a family retreat in September so Jill's book is going to be really important for me to read.
