I mentioned earlier that Carrie Nelson was at our retreat. What a down to earth delightful lady she is. She told us that she has a difficult time thinking of herself as a designer.....I was glad she said that, because I feel the same way. I just create and make quilts and am living the dream, doing what I enjoy. Obviously Carrie feels the same way, and is especially thrilled to be now working for Moda. It certainly would be a thrill to be involved with beautiful fabric.
I have a few photos of her trunk show which I will share today.
Carrie started out her trunk show with the Radio Flyer......one of my favorites, which I made a few years back in red, blue and creams. I'll share it with you one of these days. :-)
A different color version.
She shared bunches of her little quilts. I love how the quilting looks on muslin.....there is nothing quite like it.
The goodness goes on and on.....
I really love the colors in the wee quilt.
Houses, I just love them......I will continue Carrie's trunk show tomorrow.
Cottage Garden completed.....quilted and bound and labeled!
The blocks are 5 inches.......yes, that means the little squares are 1 inch finished. I used mostly wool with a bit of cotton for interest. The pattern will be available in time for market, maybe earlier. I will let you know.
Karen Martin, hopefully you will be reading this......you never sent me your address for your free pattern selection. I emailed you, but perhaps you didn't receive it.
Hopefully you all had a marvelous week end and are starting your work week with a happy heart!
