Blog from HG Designer Bev Proulx

Time to include my excitement about "Posies and Puppies"! The fabric line is in and will soon be in the stores. Here I am, on a very hot July 1 here in Minnesota, plotting and planning how to use the fabric. I know all of you will enjoy the line just as much. I will have a small quilt ready soon, and I will have a picture to share next time.

I am almost finished with a quilt I long hoped to make, using the chain-link block from the newspapers' Nancy Page column in the 1930s and the prairie points needed for the edge on a large queen size quilt. I did use my three lines of 1930s reproduction fabrics. Yes, I will have a picture to show all readers as soon as I get the knife edge finish stitched on the back of the quilt.
I hope all of you interested in our Henry Glass & Co. fabrics are also looking for quilt patterns for these fabrics. Nothing can replace the visual of a quilt made from the fabrics we all love.
I am currently on a summer break of sorts. My lecture schedule picks up again in August, when I begin my visits to groups throughout the upper Midwest. Meanwhile, I am designing patterns and piecing quilts as quickly as I can. For all of you, enjoy my "Posies and Puppies"
and keep stitching!
