Jeanne sent me a picture of the Sophie combined blocks in color to post. It's a bit wrinkled but I knew you would all want to see her right away. I'm really having a difficult time deciding which version is my favorite. What about you? Later in the month we'll start to reveal how we are adding fabrics around this cluster of designs for the first "BIG" block of the wall-hanging. Stay tuned.
This weekend should be a busy one. We are starting to assemble the patterns we will be taking to the Spring Quilt Festival in Chicago mid-April. Boy-what a lot of planning needs to go into this event. For the first time we are going to be offering kits as well as patterns to buy. Next week starts the kit assembly process. We're going to "ask" (our version of drafting!) for help from some of our buddies to try to get it all done at one time and also keep it kind of fun. Not quite as good as a quilt-escape weekend with quilting buddies but we hope to have good conversation and good treats to nibble on while we do the assembly. Hope your weekend is full of fun and stitching!
