Fabric Trends issue for Fall 2008

Well, it's here! The fall issue is out on the stands now, and I had to share with you the page in the back with my quilt!!! I am really excited! I've had someone ask about a pattern, which they don't give in the magazine. Bert, I can't answer your comment, you don't have it set up for reply, but if you will send me your email address I will write to you, and thanks for your interest.
Here's the one page photo in the back, hmmmm, I'm thinking it is time to update that picture, it is already 1 yr old. I am still working fast and furiously on quilts for Market, which might explain my weekly posts. When those are over, I will be back more frequently, I have really missed visiting with all of you!!! At least the weather has made a change for the Fall season and I am really enjoying the cooler temps.
The pictures below are some of the quilts shown at the Loa retreat. I thought you might like to see what people are doing out there. I love show and tell, it always inspires me to do more, and even something better than I've done before. Hope you enjoy these, which are just a few of the beautiful quilts we saw in Loa, Utah.

The blue and white is a quilt done by Marsha Chappel.
Tina Paris and her finished version of last year's quilt, which we all put together differently. Marsha is on the right.
Love these colors!!
Karen Martin and her beautiful Mariners Compass quilt.

I had to share this beautiful quilt with you, made by Pat Gibbs, designed by Kaffe Fasset from his Musem Quilts book. You could stare at this forever and still not see everything! Darlene Finney, owner of Quilters Quarters in Henderson, NV, taught this as a block of the month last year. Of course there were SEVERAL blocks each month!! lol!
Did you ask me if I had mine done yet? Oh, good, I'm glad you didn't!!!!!! What a beautiful job Patt!!!!!

I'll be sending some more sneak peaks very soon----- so check back with me! In the meantime, the sweatshop is going strong!!! Till next time....keep quilting!!
