If you’re attending the Quilt Expo in Madison, please stop into our booth (#835) and check out my new pattern called Acorn. Right in time for fall, this little quilt has directions for making a woven collage for the top of the acorn and patterns for all those leaves as well. Doesn’t it look like it’s wearing a hat? Or is that just me?
As you may have guessed, my new quilt pattern premiering at the AQS Show in Paducah is a house quilt. Why? Because I like houses and live in one just like this.
It is called Going Home. It is for all you mothers who have an older child who returns home to live with you for a while. And then sadly, leaves home and you no longer have a cook. Here’s where you can get your own pattern and kit to make a Going Home quilt.
Just before leaving for the AQS Show in Paducah, KY, I had a brilliant idea. Why not develop another pattern for the Artfabrik booth? And like most of my brilliant ideas, I waited until the last moment. Just call me Last Minute Laura.
Here you see the beginning stages of the stitchery for the new pattern quilt. Can you guess what the quilt will look like? I’ll show you tomorrow. Don’t be late!
Does this look organized to you? Yes! Almost all of my boxes are filled and ready to drive to the AQS Show in Paducah KY next week. There are just a few details to take care of like what clothes to pack (one must look fashionable at these events).
And I have a new pattern to pack and reveal at the show! Don’t worry, you’ll be the first to see it.
Things are not going well. It seems a plan to fold and stuff all my patterns and fabric kits for sale at the AQS show in Paducah is very boring. Yawn! My mind wanders and I wake up to discover folded pattern directions stuffed into the wrong fabric kits. Arrrrgh! No wonder it takes me a week to pack up the Artfabrik booth!
Suddenly all my stitching and quilt making has come to a halt. Incomplete projects are interrupted. My evenings of hand stitching is ended. Why? Because next week I leave for Paducah KY for the annual AQS Quilt Show.
That means I have a week to prepare all the items that are for sale in the Artfabrik booth. Thread must be washed and twisted into skeins in the evening. Dyed fabric must be ironed and pattern and fabric kits assembled. Can hardly wait to sit around the booth in Paducah and rest up. Will I see you there?
