Finished these for some very special people--
That is how we fondly refer to the lovely ladies who own and operate the Olde World Quilt Shoppe in Phoenix, AZ. Two sisters and one daughter.
If you ever find yourself in the area, give them a visit.
You will not be disappointed.
Besides their charming personalities and knowledge base, they have an awesome collection of reproduction fabrics to choose from. It is rumored that celebrities like Renee Plains of Liberty Star and Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company frequent the shoppe.
I can assure you it is more than a rumor!
So, who is my mystery visitor?
I received an email from Barbara in California, who surprised me in November with her completed SAL quilt. I didn't even know she was participating.
She will be in Scottsdale soon and we plan to meet at the aforementioned Olde World Quilt Shoppe.
I am so excited to meet her.
Blogland has opened up a whole new world of associations for me.
Most remain faceless.
Hopefully, soon, I will put a face with her lovely quilt.
Speaking of SAL quilts, I would like to do a parade of SAL quilts before I start my 1880 sampler.
Please send me pictures of your quilts, no matter what stage of completion and I will add them to the pictures I already have.
Mine is still only half quilted. Maybe this will motivate me to get busy and finish it.
And if you are looking for a bubble gum pink fabric for your 1880 sampler quilt, check out this line available at Sew Unique Creations. It is called Little Pink Stars by Margo Krager.
Wish the blues were not so dark in value or they would have been perfect too.
