Sneak peaks at new market stuff!!

Well, I got two tops completed today, and they are ready for the longarm room. Roxy and Peanut were helping me out today in the sewing room, and they had plenty to say about what was going on in there! The wind was blowing like crazy today and they stayed inside for the most part! Usually their backs are turned to me while they look out the window to see who's walking by!
I have some sneak peaks of blocks to share with you, the blue with the African ladies are doing their wash, and this is the cutest line called Labor of Love by Quilting Treasures.

I have a couple of blocks to show you from the Sketchbook collection by P&B Textiles also. These blocks are easy, and would work great with any line, but I love the bright colors of them. You know me and color!! I love pastels, but I always seem to go stronger and stronger in my fabric choices.
This next picture shows a beautiful quilt made by my friend Karen, and she asked me to longarm quilt it for her. That fabric was just georgeous and I love the Storm at Sea blocks. She added sashing, so I tried to make each block stand out. Isn't that border fabric just to die for? And blue and white ALWAYS works!!
Tomorrow I am headed to St George with friends to eat, shop, visit and just get away together, imagine that, a real day off!!! Should be fun. I'm anxious to see what's new in the quilt shops right now, and enjoy good food with friends. I'm saying my prayers also for my dear friend, whose husband is having major surgery tomorrow. I pray that all goes well, and she knows who I'm talking about. So on that note, I will end this for now, and talk to you soon. I saw a really great quote today that I will share with you,
"Any day spent quilting is a good day"

Love the blue and white. And the ladies on the blue - I went to Haiti on a mission trip in October - that type of art is very prevalent there. Have fun at St. Geo. Lynn
