Happy New Year, everyone – wishing you all a joyous and wonderful year! I’ve been reading some wonderful blogs today with beautiful pictures of projects. What great work everyone does! (Wish I could show more of what I’ve worked on here, but that will have to wait a few months.)
Some of you have been kind enough to email me about my quilt in the Winter 2011 issue of Fabric Trends (fabirc doesn’t ship until late Feburary), but to date I hadn’t seen it. Too impatient to wait for my copy to arrive in the mail, I picked up one from Barnes and Noble yesterday…
The people at Fabric Trends did such a nice job with the instructions. They even showcased both color stories! You can preorder a kit here, but the kits won’t ship until late February/early March. If you can’t wait, Fat Quarter Shop, who will be kitting many of the Swiss Chocolate magazine quilts, just got in the entire line!
And imagine my surprise to turn the magazine around and see an inset of the blue/periwinkle feature from Ambrosia on the back cover and this inside…
What a nice way to bring in a New Year. Yesterday was a good day to shop for other reasons too. I visited two quilt stores. The first, The Quilt Patch, in Fairfax City, Virginia, has an amazing selection of rulers, templates, and threads. I picked up some circle and hexagon templates. Can’t wait to use them!
The second quilt shop I visited, The Artful Quilter, in Burke, Virginia, has a lovely selection of fabric lines with a modern vibe.
Look at this zipper display. I was/still am salivating.
Hope you are enjoying the holidays!
