Spring Quilt Market – what’s new?

May 12th, 2015

It’s finally here. Spring Quilt Market! It seems like it’s my whole “reason for being” these past few months. This spring it’s in my backyard – Minneapolis!  And we will not disappoint with our crazy weather.  No snow in the forecast, but it certainly won’t be balmy or humid as it was in 2010.

I’m really excited about the new patterns that are ready right now!

These are up on the website and available in the wholesale store as well.

Shop Owners ~ Please stop by Booth 1011 at market and see these quilts in person! I have a great market special for you.
