Hi there middle of the week! Wednesday always seems like a great day of the week to me, and today is extra good because it's Bret's birthday! It's the perfect time for me to say what a great guy he is and that I totally hit the husband jackpot when I married him. So right off I want to say Happy Birthday to Bret! Hope this coming year is extra awesome for you.
Moving on to the usual kinds of blog topics, here's a picture of the LakeHouse booth at Quilt Market! Look at that wall of mini quilts! Holly designed those blocks using her new Borders on Bolts Instant Scallops and Fence fabric, along with other fabrics in her Sunrise Studio collection.
They're pretty amazing, she got started and couldn't stop. Our friend Sherri Falls stitched them all up and quilted them for her, and shipped them to the hotel. What fun it was to see Holly open the box and one by one pull out all those colorful quilts. What's great is that they illustrate just the tip of the iceberg of possibilities for the scallops, and you can count on seeing more of those in the future.
On the tables we showed off quilts made from the collection and from the Pam Kitty Garden collection, both of which are shipping to stores December. The Sunrise Studio colors are compatible with the Pam Kitty colors so you'll be able to add scallops to your Pam Kitty fabric projects too! Lots more coming on that topic for sure! Anyway, you're getting a sneak peak at some future magazine quilts as well as a free pattern for an easy strip quilt.. you might remember seeing me working on it for her before market.
I'm excited to show you Fog City Kitty, which is a new color way for the Pam Kitty Garden fabrics. We had so many requests for grey when shops and customers started seeing PKG we put together a quick collection starring pinks and grays, but of course you'll see the usual Pam Kitty Suspects, green, aqua and red! I hope you're going to like all the low volume prints we have too!
Phew! That's a lot for one day! Better pour another cup of coffee and get busy! Have a happy day!
