...and checked it twice and then headed for the final stretch. Marcia attended a fun class today on creating spiral log cabin blocks. Really a cool technique that you can be sure will be a future class. The Timeless Treasures rountable was really cool and we got to see fabric strikeoffs for possible future groups and gave our feedback on the color selection, pattern designs and whether or not we liked it. It's a very interesting process how the fabric is created from artwork done by someone who is an artist, not a quilter.
So - Amy Butler:ordered; M&S Australian prints:ordered; Timeless Blue Moon batiks: ordered. The Block of the Month search was successful and I'm really psyched abour our selection. More on the timetable for the BOM later. We stocked up on new patterns, bought fat quarters of fun juvenile-ish fabrics to make our fun new critters and (drumroll please)...WOOL. So many folks have been asking for wool lately that we've decided to give it another try. Now, this is wool in small manageable and affordable pieces intended for small and manageable projects. It should arrive in about 3 weeks. Our moda appointment was this morning and we ordered some fun new groups for spring 2010 deliveries. Moda told us that Wiscasset is due to start shipping this week, so no more hassling me folks! We made tentative calendar dates with McKenna Ryan for her visit to Maine next August (yippee!) and chatted with Heidi Kaisand about her return too.
We're ready to head home and as I scanned through the photos on the camera can't wait to show them all to you. Our shuttle arrives ar 4:05 AM for our 6:45 flight. We're looking foward to seeing our families and all of you! Thanks for following along!
