Primarily Quilts.....

 Look what arrived while I was gone at Quilt Market!  I didn't share the first few copies I got because they were gone before I got my camera out!  Sharon T. had inquired as to whether or not I could order this for her.  The book is from Quiltmania based in Europe and not readily available in the States.  It was an adventure, including dealing with a lovely gal in France named Sophie.  But....we persevered and got the books.  They were gone in a few days, so I ordered more for some folks that saw the first order.  What is this book?  Well, it's "Primarily Quilts" by Australian Di Ford.  Di, who previously owned 'Primarily Patchwork' in Melbourne, has an extraordinary talent for quilt making, and this 240 page book shares 16 of her gorgeous patterns.  The photography is true to Quiltmania standards and gorgeous, as are the projects.  One of my favorites was Road 66....yup, based on Route 66.  We have one of them out of the packaging, so flip through it if you're at the counter.

Well, the retired guy and I got home a little past dinner time yesterday.  That's a long drive from Portland!  Quilt Market was wonderful and inspiring.  Brought home a few things to *play* with; ordered a few more, plus some fabric.  More sales reps will be stopping by in the next few weeks to show me the rest of what's new and exciting.  Harriet and the gals kept things humming at the shop.  I tried to clean up the *stuff* I brought home and then Diane and I started fiddling with a few ideas!  I've got to finish the directions for our Shop Hop block this week and then next week we will *stuff* bags ~ hooray....plan to be done close to the first of June so we can concentrate on other fun things.  Jan will be there tomorrow and I see she's got a couple of things started.  Freight?  Well, the new Quiltmania magazines arrived and some wonderful kitty flannel in brights and a bolt of moustaches!  Hear the weather's going to change, sew we won't feel guilty being in our sewing rooms instead of pulling weeds ~ right?  Happy Monday night to you all!
