Fabric, Books, and Blocks...

First, I must apologize it has been a few days since I posted and I feel badly I haven't responded to your recent comments, but I will. It has been very hectic around here. I was off at MQX in NH and just got back. I took 2 classes from Anita Shackelford. One word....WONDERFUL!! The quilts were to die for and the vendors fantastic. Of course, I had to spend some money.

Any way that is one of the reasons, I have been MIA. But I am also, getting ready for vacation too!! Yippee!! I promise I will be responding to your comments, so please don't be shy!

But before I go, I wanted to show you a few things. As some of you may know, I was one of the lucky ones to win a wonderful fat quarter pack from Anne of Bunny Hill Designs! She is fabulous and so are her fabrics. They are gorgeous. Go check them out on her site! Here is what she sent me:


I also picked up a good read for my vacation. I have read all of Jennifer's books...in order too!! I love them all. Check out her website.


Lastly but not leastly (a word??, nah!). My friend, June, had done a block challenge for a group she belongs to and had made a few too many blocks. She did not want them, so of course, I volunteered to take them off of her hands. I absolutely love them!! They are bright and cheerful and remind my of Freddie Moran's Houses.


Oh, one other reason I have have been so busy, I have been quilting customer quilts like a mad woman. I have just updated my website with about 7 new quilts. Check them out here. Gorgeous!

For those of you who are wondering where the picture of my Cherrywood quilt is, it is coming. I did quilt it and I am in the process of binding it, so hold on to your hats and stay tuned!

Happy Quilting,
Jackie

That fat quarter bundle looks so pretty! I Love Anne's designs (of course, since we have two sweet bunnies). Winding Ways is a great book- I have read all of them as well and is almost done with this one. It is really really really good (you know what i mean).
