After the holidays I don't want to even think about next Christmas, but in the quilting world that is unrealistic. We have to start ordering all of our fabric for Christmas 2010 in January. The good side of that is we have a long time to think about and plan the next project.

Today we received 7 boxes of freight. Our UPS driver Dave always loves days like this. For him it is a lot of work, and for us it's like Christmas everyday. Today we received quite a few new bolts of Batiks from Island Batiks and Robert Kaufman, and like all of the others they are stunning.

We also recieved the most adorable baby line "Chirp" from Robert Kaufman. We are making a very cute sample that is a perfect baby quilt or wall hanging. Here is a sneak peek at the beautiful bolts.

Chirp was designed by Kate Hennagir.

Our next Christmas present today was a box from E.E. Schenck. It was full of the Veranda line from Maywood Studios. Laurie is going to be making a beautiful sample from this line. We will post pictures when the sample is done.


Our last present of the day was an adorable line from Red Rooster Fabrics. The Sew-It Book Collection by Amy Barickman is a line of fun reproductions of the 1929 classic sewing book. The original text was by Richard Taft and has been reissued by Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction and The Vintage Workshop.

Happy Quilting!

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay awhile, make footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same. ~Anonymous~


  1. OMG, I need to finish the projects I have at home, now you're tempting me with more beautiful fabrics. Gotta love ya, Mary Ann

  2. I like the addition of your blog. Have you considered making a business page on facebook? Lots and lots of folks are on there and it seems like a great way to keep all the quilters and aspiring quilters (like myself) in touch!
