Just in is Mr. Roboto and some fun companion prints. The block print above would be ideal as the centers of a modern log cabin style block. The companion prints are loads of fun. Who could resist circuitry, nuts & bolts, or gears. This collection is begging to become the basis of a child's (or a child at heart's ) quilt.
Hmmm - maybe some boardshorts made from the gears or tools for a little guy....
A customer named Martha brought in her "first quilt" to pick a back fabric for. She has been a garment sewer forever but is new to quilting. A friend suggested she start by sewing strips together and from that advice this beautiful quilt evolved. Wow! That is an impressive first quilt, I think Martha underestimates her talents. I love it when people just dive in and let it evolve as it will.
This is a short post because there are many things left to do today before I head out to the Spring Quilt Market! Woohoo!
This year the market is at our big sister's place. We are headed to Portland to see the latest and greatest that the industry has to offer. There will be a lot of travel up and down I-5 as all the ladies of PbP juggle wandering the aisles of the convention center and being here for you at the shop too. We will have lots to tell, I'm sure.
