Today's post is busy and very full, so stick with me. First off I want to announce the winner of our local giveaway for one ticket to the Quilter's Harvest event November 12 sponsored by local shops and Alpine Quilt Retreats. I'll be teaching and working with group A and making .....
covered button rings. It will really be fun. I can't wait. And don't forget that I teach quilt classes at Alpine Quilt Retreats. Think about coming to sew with me sometime next year. Ok. The winner of one ticket to the Quilter's Harvest is Sandy! Sandy Said: "I want to come, that would be so much fun. I live just a few miles away." Yay for Sandy. Don't forget anyone else if you mention you read my blog you get an extra button ring kit at the event. Thanks to all the gals that commented. I hope you come anyway. It will really be fun. I look forward to a great time.I have to show you just a few pics from Allison's birthday party last Monday. She was so cute. This is her birthday cake. She's a real princess.
After eating the cake Allison got a bath (this pic is post-bath). She is opening presents. The pillow pet (bee) is from Aunt Natalie and Uncle Justin. The Sesame St. Purse is from Nanny and Pa. She really loved her presents.
This is a puppet from her aunts. Allison's mom, Whitney is with her in this photo. Such a cute pic. I could go on and on, she got so many cute things. It was fun.
Now onto Fabric Friday. Riley Blake and Alpine Fabrics is a local company. It is amazing to have a successful, innovative fabric company just a few miles away from my house. The best part is that they involve local designers. and I'm sure you probably heard by my BFF Lori Holt has designed her first fabric line with Riley Blake.
Go over to Lori's blog and read all about her new line coming out in the spring. Here is a sneak peak above and she's got more photos. I'm so happy for her. And I'm already dreaming of things I can make with her new line called Sew Cherry.Another Riley Blake designer is Amanda Herring of the Quilted Fish. Her Sweet Divinity line gave me a great idea for a new quilt design. So I visited Jina at Riley Blake and brought home some Sweet Divinity fabric.
This is what my cutting table looks like right now. I make a really big mess when I cut fabric. Do you?
This is one of the blocks from my new quilt. This line is a slight departure for me but I really like it. I hope you'll like my design when I get it put together.
Have a great weekend everyone.
