I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with lots of loved ones and great food.  I know I did.  My son and his family came in from South Padre Island for the holidays and it was so great to hang out with them and the baby.  My grandson is 16 months old and like a shark.  He never sits still and is super curious.  Loved kissing his sweet little face and making him smile.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas holiday season has begun!  The tree and decorations are up and I'm ready to shop.  Plus, now I can take out my Christmas quilts and snuggle up with them.  This is our Night Before Christmas quilt.  It's pretty much our only "holiday" design.  We don't usually do many of them.  This one came about as a request from a fabric company to use their new collection.  It's a pretty simple block using flying geese units.  Kinda slick, I think.  Anyway, it's going on my couch cause we just got a cold front and my feet are chilly!  I think this pattern would be great in an assortment of reds and greens with one stunning border fabric. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas holiday filled with lots of good food and friends.  Be sure to take time to sew every day.    Amy

Quilt Market 2011

Quilt market is over and we think it was a great success.  We had lots of compliments on our designs and our booth layout.  We even had fun wearing our newly designed t-shirts.  We had bouncy cat headbands, but decided not to include them in the picture since I want this as our new website pic.  All in all, a very successful weekend.
Our Sugar 'n Spice quilt.  Notice the yo-yo pillow on the chair.  I went a little crazy after having to make so many yo-yos for the quilt and I just continued on to make enough for this cute little pillow.
The completed booth.  It's really hard to coordinate the quilts when we have so many different styles and colors.  But I think it looks great.

We had this outside wall to also display more quilts, so we put Minay's Love It or Leaf It quilts up.  They were very eyecatching.
More finished booth.  We like the open layout of a double booth.  It allows customers easy access to see the quilts up close.

If you made it to market and visited us - thanks!  It's always nice to see our customers.  If you couldn't make it to market, please check out our website to see all the great patterns you missed seeing up close and personal.
