Colorful Quilting Project

I decided I wanted to do something fun for me, quilting wise (what else!).  I would like to see all of my RoseCards made up in Kaffe Fassett collective fabrics.  With what I have in stock, stash, Grandma Pam's (I might be assuming too much here, but isn't that what kids do?), and a little online and in-store shopping, I think I just might be able to do this.  What good is having a stash of fabric, if I don't start using it?  Plus it would make a killer trunk show.

40 quilts for the 40 patterns--nothing to it.  And I have a jump start--2 already are on covers, and I have the models.  I have bits of Kaffe's Collections stashed all over the workroom.  I have the feeling I will find more as I poke around and do some cleaning.  The first one is already picked out and started for LOVERS LANE--what fun!

To review what I already have done--

2 down...38 to go!

Market Highlights

We're barely back from the Houston marathon.  Wholesale Market was fabulous.  The Rosecards are well received and shops are sharing how they are using them.  We saw our favorite designers and their fabulous new fabric lines--and ordered, of course.

I was joined by daughters Leann and Jessica.  Leann for the first couple days, and Jessica for the whole 2 shows.  How great it was having them with me--my yin and yang girls.  Polar opposites in looks and nature, they are best friends.  Market goers will remember them.

Before Leann had to leave on Sunday, the two dashed around the show, checking exhibits and making friends. 

Here they are with Amy Butler--Amy and the Rosettes......
