Happy Belated Birthday to Dr. King and a winner!

Happy Belated Birthday to Dr. King and a winner!

Thought this little picture of this fabric from the awesome design house of Tula Pink would cheer you up on a Monday
(actually Thursday is when I am getting to this….and ACTUALLY this is the SECOND time I have typed this….I had this post all prepped to add the winner info to Monday morning, finally sat down this morning to add in all the winner info, etc…had it done….posted it….AND none of my morning edits went through….so yeah, it’s already been a Groundhog Day kinda morning around here….sigh)

saltwater by Tula

Last fall I was asked to make a quilt from Tula’s book for Free Spirit‘s Fall Market 2012 booth.  Was that a no-brainer or what? I didn’t have to work up a design, I had wanted to delve into Tula’s book from the day I got it, AND I was given enough fabric to make the quilt WITH these lovely leftovers….which all on their own have inspired a new quilt design that I can’t wait to get to, but must soon.  This new quilt concept in my head has the beguiling working title of Paris by the Sea…and is a modern wonky wonderful concept…..in my head it is at least….(oh, and the marvelous Miss Tula has another book coming out too! Check it out here and here!

Oh, and Belated Happy Birthday to Martin Luther King….even though he has gone on his efforts did not, and there is a lot of Dreaming going on out in the world for that which is good!  And with the good doctor’s birthday, I have a winner to announce from this post on Friday.

Robin  said Oh fun! I love Seven Wonders. :)

I have sent Robin an email, so as soon as she gets her address to me AND I cut into the Seven Wonders a package will be going her way!

Oh, and also today is:

local quilt shop

I am headed into Seattle to meet with the owner of this lovely shop and the peeps at In the Beginning Fabrics and then if I have time, I am headed over to this shop…Neither of which are “local” to me…but I am sure I will have a fun day!!

So have fun too and go out shopping locally!


  • I did visit my local shop. Bought a bag of neutral scraps, a twister ruler and signed up for a class. A good visit by all accounts. I also took in my finished christmas tree quilt, I had received the piece on a local shop hop during november. Thought they would like to see finished version as I did change it some what.

  • Soooo jealous of you going to Island Quilter. Any shop with loads of Kaffe is my kind of shop.

    Well, Anne, I didn’t actually make it all the way to Anja’s shop. I met her in Seattle. But NEXT month, I will be hopping over there to see her and Paul, and all the pretty Kaffe Prints!
