Blog from Barbara Jones of QuiltSoup

QuiltSoup News-October 2008
What's New? Bubblegum Basics, Blogs, Doll Dresses, and Aunt Martha’s Tomato, Chicken and Vegetable Soup.
We are delighted to announce that we have designed a new fabric collection called Bubblegum Basics for Henry Glass & Co. It was tremendous fun to do this collection. We are debuting the collection at Fall Market in Houston and will show you the whole thing when we return. The colors are fun, the patterns are simple and perfect for appliqué and pieced quilts alike. I hope you will like them as much I do. We have designed two free patterns to accompany the collection and I am excited to post them for you as soon as the fabric is available.
Well we finally took the plunge! We are officially blogging. We launched the blog to coincide with Lakehouse’s Designer Dolly Dresses blog-a-thon. Check the blog to find out what we’re talking about!
We will sneak peek new patterns on the blog first. Hope I can remember to start taking lots of pictures so I can show you lots of stuff. To whet your appetite for the good things to come, here is a snap of a block from our newest quilt “All Dolled Up” made from Lakehouse’s Doll Dress collection. Our Birds and Bees quilt kit has been marked down to $99.99. There are only a few left.
Bad Dad kits are now in stock! Kit includes all the fabric for the quilt top, the binding and the pattern. This cute quilt is perfect for the younger school crowd! If you had one reserved, please email me and we will get it sent out.
The recipe this month is from Martha Burmeister and is for Tomato, Chicken and Vegetable Soup. She said she ordered this soup at a restaurant and it was one of her favorites. She has tried to duplicate the soup in her own kitchen and thinks this recipe does it. We thank her for sharing the results from her “test kitchen” with us. If you are like us, we have eaten our garden tomatoes until they are coming out of our ears…. in salad, BLT sandwiches, spaghetti sauce and salsa and now soup. We have to run out of them sooner or later…I hope!
We have exciting news to share with you when we return from Houston!! Can’t wait to tell you about all the new things happening! Have a terrific month.
Until next time,
