Hey, everyone, this month has been busy with a trip to Columbus OH for the NQA Quilt Show and then vending here at home at the Wilmington Quilters by the Sea Quilt Show this past weekend.
We're excited about the pending delivery of Moda's 'The Morris Workshop' collection by Barbara Brackman. These are reproductions from the 1872-1887 period of Morris's life.
Wm. Morris said, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful". We can't wait to make something from this collection that is both beautiful and useful!
I'm working on a large picture punching beautiful blue thistle flowers on a piece of yellow decorator fabric. Hope to have it finished in time for the Asheville show. The Rotary Club of Asheville is having their first annual Rotary Quilt and Fiber Arts Show to be held at the Biltmore Square Mall in conjunction with the Asheville Quilt Show held at the NC Arboretum, both held on the same weekend - August 7-9, 2009. We hope those of you within shouting distance of Asheville will come to see the 2009 Challenge Quilts by the Shady Ladies of Waynesville, a sampling of what's new in art fiber by the Fiber Arts Alliance and then visit us in the Biltmore Square Mall.
Stand by for our 'punchneedle tutorial' coming soon!
