We are hitting the road...

Three days until our big bus trip.  I am so excited to see all the quilts on display.  It is always such an inspirational day.  I come home motivated to get going on my own masterpiece.  There are several local quilters with quilts in the show this year-Congratulations to Joy and Thelma!  Can't wait to see them in person.

We have lots of new fabric in.  The Seasonal Gatherings line arrived last week.  Sarah is going to be using this one in a BOM to start in the fall.  It will feature piecing as well as some applique and embroidery.

We also just got in Lily Ashbury's newest line, Trade Winds.  It is bright and ready for summer, very exotic prints.

Ellie and I have also been very busy on our East Central Illinois Shop Hop Quilt.  I think you will all be very pleasantly surprised by this years quilt.  Hopefully we will have the big reveal next week.  All the blocks are done and we are in the final stages of assembly.  It is by far my favorite shop hop quilt to date.  (The shop hop is July 12-14 this year.  Passports are available now.)

Have a great weekend!
