A New Post from Alma

WaHoo!  A new post from Alma!  Her posts are even rarer than mine on this blog this year.  ;-)

She shows their booth from the recent Spring market, full of beautiful quilts.  I'm taking a quilt class Saturday and was going to use my BBD Meadow jellyroll for the class, but I might hold onto it now until their upcoming Meadow quilt book comes out.  We'll see.  They have some beautiful quilts sure to check out Alma's post.

I got a kick out of her comment that some of their fans were welcoming them into the 21st century because Barb had made a quilt using an adhesive product and machine applique.  I can relate to that...sometimes it's fun to do things the "21st century" way and sometimes the "good old days" are what I yearn for.  How about you?
They also have a youtube on this post!  These gals are "getting with it" - at least for now.  It is a nice place to visit.

Happy stitching...or quilting!

A New Start...Whether I Need it or Not!

I'm going to our little BBD group tonight.  And I had some good news today.  So I have decided that this should be celebrated with a new project start!  (Yes, I know, I am still only half way through Anniversaries of the Heart and 2011 Loose Feathers.)  Not to mention that two new BBD patterns are available any day now!

Can you guess what my start is going to be from this?
Give up?  Or did you get it right?

Yes, I'm itching to start on Spring's Song - Jewelry Box.  I love the look of this, and it certainly seems like a perfect project to celebrate the beautiful month of May.

I have been watching her progress, and now drooling over Brenda's Spring's Song finish, and I can't restrain myself any longer!  And while you're visiting Brenda's blog...aren't her cottages just the cutest?  (Another project that I am woefully behind on.)

I wish all of you a wonderful month of May and hope that your spring stitching is going well.  I hope I have some real progress to show you on this project soon.
