On the Road Again.....

Before we hit the road, Kristin asked me to post a blog showing the quilts we made for QuiltCon...well I'm a bit slow.  Isn't there a saying, "better late, than never"?  Here is a little peak, sorry for the quality of the photo's but we did not finish prepping until midnight Monday...the 18th.
This is done with soft light batiks from Robert Kaufman, by Lunn Studios, subtle is the word for this one.  For me it says spring. 


 A crayon box comes to mind when you see this lap size quilt, which is done with our hand-dyed Kona cotton color palette.  Fresh!

Waving the red, white and blue; this quilt is done using Robert Kaufman's Color Source by Lunn Studio.  These are all available in a kit and will be on our website as soon as we return.
 Kristin took this quick shot of our booth in Austin.  If you are at QuiltCon stop by and introduce yourself to her and Vickie.

I admit I forgot to take a picture of our booth at Mancuso's MidAtlantic in Hampton, come on by, check it out in person if you are attending, if not I will try and post a picture tomorrow.  People are referring to our booth as "Eye Candy, not fattening"...all the wonderful colors of hand-dyed "textures" are show stopping. Don't forget to introduce yourself to Donna and I, love putting names with faces.

New Item Introduction: Hand-Dyed Flannel

Oops....somehow I forgot to send out the newsletter earlier today.   Was so busy working on packaging all the new dyed items that I forgot it.  I decided I'd take the time to get it out tonight.  There were some cool features to this week.  First, I got notice that one of my quilts(Kristin's) was accepted to Celebrate Spring 2013 that will start at the IQF show in Cincinnati.  Very excited about this.  Second,  we realized that our first shows of the year are just 2 weeks away!!!  We have to kick it into high gear to finish up all the dyeing and get the orders in the system.

We had the opportunity to include a giveaway in the bags given to the QuiltCon attendees.  We made bookmarks that show our style.  Here is a peak....they have all our info stamped on the back.

Sale of the Week:  Hand-Dyed Flannel 15% off
Each piece is 9x12" and varies due to the dyeing process.

Also a new piece is almost done.....showing off our hand-dyed cottons that will be at QuiltCon.
