More New Fabrics!!

I no more than got the new "Complements" line by Jo Morton  cut, folded, rolled and bundled when another new line arrived today! This is the "Attic Shirtings" by Jo Morton.  Some friends and I were saying just yesterday that new shirtings were needed and here they are!  Another new fabric line that arrived is "Rural Jardin" by French General for Moda. 

I live on an old farm in Maine with my quilt shop on the property.......this farm pond is the view from my kitchen window.  Before anyone gets too excited about the little shed that looks like it might be an Outhouse, I need to tell you that it is a Wellhouse for the spring water pump!  If you enlarge the photo, you will see the cows taking an afternoon siesta!!!  Glad I took this shot of the lovely lilacs as today after 3 warm days, they have gone by....don't last long enough!

Some Little Quilts I've Made

This is a wall of mostly little quilts...the Broken Dishes on the left is from a Jo Morton pattern but I changed it so it is unrecognizable from hers!  Two quilts are from Carol Hopkins Designs.  She,  Lori Smith "From My Heart to Your Hands", Kathy Tracy, and Renee Plains  are also favorites.  The Triangles quilt visible in the upper left corner was inspired by a quilt on the cover of an LLBean catalog ; I used only Judie Rothermel reproductions.

Quilt Shop Photos

Here are two photos of my Jo Morton Corner.  She's one of my favorite designers and I've carried her fabrics, books and Little Women Club for many years......about 400 bolts in stock!  If you look closely, you will see that some of the fabrics are displayed on an old Clarion cookstove.....nice to burn wood when it's really cold, BUT this year it had to hold fabric!!  The photo below shows more Jo fabrics.
