Do you live in the Pacific Northwest?  If so, wasn't it just a lovely day today?  It's a little like living in paradise, right?  Well, this quilt you see to your left is called Paradise Island.  The middle part is *running yardage* that you insert in the center and then build out into the border by fussy cutting some of the flowers, leaves, etc.  I saw this made up in the Michael Miller booth at Quilt Market in Portland.  We sold through the first bolt of the floral print so fast we didn't get a chance to make any kits.  But....two more bolts have arrived and we have yardage, plus a few kits!  Diane put this together for us and Tracey did the beautiful quilting ~ Fabette teamwork at its finest!!  It's *hanging out* on the design wall right now, awaiting a home.

Speaking of which....We have moved the majority of the bolts of fabric around in the last three days!  Just one section left to tackle tomorrow, but I am sure Harriet and I will get that done.  And that's where the home for this hanging comes into play.  I took a lot of samples down last week to bring to the EverGreen quilt show.  So, now we need to give them all new homes!  Hoping to get that accomplished for the most part tomorrow as well.  

Some of you have asked why we move stuff around.  Well, a couple of reasons.  First of all, you know those bolts by the windows?  They need to move before the sun does any damage.  And then, there's the whole *seasonal* thing.  It was time to bring the Christmas fabric out where you could easily see it, and the Autumn/Fall fabrics should be front and center too.  Then, the flannels had expanded beyond the capacity of their home, so they needed a new one.  And then....well, you get the picture ~ right?  Sew....next time you pop in, it will be a bit of a new look at Fab-Etc.  Hope to see you soon!
