Hope you enjoyed the mini antique quilt show!
I met the people from Quiltmania at Houston Quilt Market Fall 2010. They saw a quilt I had designed for Windham Fabrics and wanted to publish it along with the pattern. I was thrilled!
The name of the quilt is Shelburne Calico Garden Medallion. It was designed using Windham’s fabric line by the same name (minus the Medallion part). The quilt was challenge I enjoyed. Thank you Quiltmania!!!
I’d like to clarify something… Even though the magazine says “This medallion quilt is a reproduction of an old quilt from the late 17th – early 18th century which is in the Shelburne Museum collection in Vermont” it is not. I designed this quilt and it is NOT a copy of a quilt already in existence. I hope the Shelburne wasn’t looking for the original.
On another note…
The Minnesota Quilters’ Quilt Show began today. It is a fantastic show as usual. There are some of the greatest quilts in the country on display, unbeatable vendors selling everything quilting and classes for every skill level! What more can you ask for.
Glad Creations Quilt Shop has a three of my designs on display and all of my Quilts Remembered patterns for sale. Check out the pictures.
As always…Happy Quilting,
I finished another quilt in the Jo’s ‘Little Women’ club 10 collection. It is called Berry Nice. The stars in this quilt are sewn in a very unique way. The quilt is hanging on display at Glad Creations Quilt Shop in Mpls., MN. I just love these little quilts!
It seems I am always sewing…and that’s a good thing. For my next ‘Little Women’ quilt I am teasing you with a picture of the fabric that will make up the blocks. Of course there is more fabric (always more fabric) which will make up the setting. But for now, this is all you will see. I promise to post a picture of the finished quilt by the end of the month.
The final picture is of Laura’s 1870 Cradle Quilt from my pattern line Quilts Remembered. I had to make a second sample. Sample #1 is at The Glass Thimble in Columbus, OH along with 5 other Quilts Remembered quilts and this one will be at the Minnesota Quilt show in Glad Creation’s booth June 15th – 18th. When the quilt show concludes it is off to California for this little quilt. I wish I got to travel as much as my quilts do!
Hope to see you at the MN Quilt show this week! Send me a comment...let me know what you think.
