Jo Morton and Linda Collins visited the shop!

 Got a call that Jo and Linda wanted to come to the shop on Monday as they are traveling around New England and Pennsylvania.  Nice to visit with them and talk quilts!  Very rainy day Monday but Tues/Wed have been perfect Fall days so I hope they are enjoying their travels!  And, yes, they both found fabrics they liked!!
 Linda brought along some Show & Tell...... on the left is the beginning of a quilt from  "Small Pieces, Spectacular Quilts" by Kinch and Storms......the little squares are 1/2"!  The quilt on the right is the result of a swap of 16-Patch blocks between American and Australian friends.......actually may have been made from Leftovers............can't remember!  Linda is the Quilts in the Barn Lady from Australia! 
The Tumbler quilt uses Jo Morton fabrics.
Linda gave me the little coaster made with precious Dutch fabrics and the red fabric is vintage!  I love it!  Below the coaster is a Fabric Postcard I received recently as a Thank You for the donation of crazy quilt fabrics.....velvets, satins, etc.  I donated them as part of my purge from the sewing room that I blogged about earlier......More about that later!!
Fabrics received in the shop this week......Josephine by French General.
 Bordeaux and Sienna from Paula Barnes!
 Two purples and a pink from Party of Twelve by Judie Rothermel.
The Just Judie contest winners (300 entries) have been announced and the two Honorable Mention winners were sponsored by my shop!  Both made beautiful quilts!  This one is by my friend, Wendy Reed......used over 600 Judie fabrics!!  Beautifully pieced, appliqued and hand-quilted!!
This quilt is by customer Denise Isherwood from Connecticut.....another original design beauty!
Check out the Marcus Fabrics Blog to see all the winners!
