Are You Ready For Paducah?

The ladies from Little Quilts are! Will any of our fans be in Paducah to see the AQS QuiltWeek? Mary Ellen Von Holt of Little Quilts sent in some photographs to show you what it's like to set up a booth from the vantage point of a vendor from start to finish. Make sure that you pop by her booth #1816 to say hi. We spy many Henry Glass & Co. goodies in her booth.

The eagle from the Little Quilts collection A Touch Of Baltimore is featured in the center and Kim Diehl's Heritage Stars is show on the right. The Crosses and Squares quilt seen attached to the bottom of Kim's quilt is a pattern designed by Little Quilts' Sampler Pattern. It is made from Kim's Heritage Hollow fabric. Here's a photograph of the adorable quilt.

The process starts with shipping the boxes to Paducah and then the delivery of the boxes to the booth. Unpacking ensues ...

They are almost finished! Muriel is working so hard.

The ladies sent in a peek at Elisabeth's Garden: A Tale Of A Thousand Threads by Elisabeth Frolet. Congratulations on the first place finish!

If you have any sightings of Henry Glass fabrics, send them to us! We would love to see them. Please forward them here.

Have a great time!

Dear Jill

Designer Jill Finley of Jillily Studio is fighting a tough battle against breast cancer and she is undergoing surgery today. Jill received a special package in the mail this week. Liz and Beth Hawkins of Lizzie B Cre8ive headed this project to have Jill's friends in the quilting industry make blocks to be put together in a lovely quilt for Jill. 

Jill received the quilt this week just before her surgery today. We wish Jill much love and luck. All the best to Jill and her family. Thank you to all who participated by sending a block in for this awesome quilt.

Have a great weekend.

Let's Get Quilting - April 13, 2015 Edition

Good Monday morning! It is time for another edition of Let's Get Quilting. This past weekend was the first time that it has felt like spring around here. Tell us what is your favorite sign of spring. Is it the warm weather? Do you notice flowers popping up everywhere? Do you like to fish? The lucky winner will win a bundle of Here Fishy Fishy by Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures.

Meanwhile, make sure that you go to your local quilt shop to buy some of Heather's latest collection, Home For Harvest. This range will be on the quilt store shelves this month.

The colors are fall but are so very fresh. Pumpkins, leaves and acorns are incorporated into this fun fall collection. You can use these prints to make things like aprons and table runners for your home or use the panel to make a quick quilt. The pattern can be found on the Henry Glass website.
