I hope that this e-mail finds you well and definitely staying cool. I have spent most of the summer just working on my Phebe quilt, other projects seem to be calling my name but I just keep answering no. Just having so much fun with the fabrics and putting the appliqué and stars together.
Sometimes I really like to add to my stash, as some of you know I don’t have a really large stash. It seems like when I add, I really add. I spent a lot of time so far this summer purchasing older fat quarter sets on eBay that I apparently missed. The shops in our area might order a couple bolts here and there of a collection, but they just don’t order the whole collection like they used to.
I am so excited about the AQS show coming to Grand Rapids this summer, it is going to be so much fun to have such great shopping in our own city. Over 300 vendors, I just cannot even imagine that. I have not had anything like that since I was at Paducah and that has been at least 10 years. It is going to be a grand time shopping, looking at the quilts, making new friends and visiting with old friends. Cannot wait.
In the meantime, attaching some of the pictures of the collections that I bought.
Take good care of yourselves, keep cool and keep stitching.
