    Hey Amma, Hey Dawn, Hey Loretta!!!!

    The last quilt I finshed is called "All Flakes Welcome" It is so cute!!!!! I didnt get any pictures because I finished it the afternoon before the Grand Opening for the quilt shop and it went straight up on the wall! But here is a link to the pattern
    http://withneedleandthread.com/pattern_details.php?id=104&size=full

    Other than that just been working on little things and putting together kits for the shop.
    What have you all been up too?


    The grandkids are doing great. the little guy is really growing and Teegyn will be 4 next week!!!!

    So nice to hear from you Melissa! Was wondering about you. That would be a ton of fun selecting fabrics and making cool stuff for the shop. That's a cute snowman quilt!

    Hi Jan!
    What is almost as fun as picking fabrics for stuff we make for the shop, is picking out fabrics for customers. I have been amazed at how many want the fabrics picked out for them! :D

    I would love for someone to select fabric for me! Can't imagine what anything will look like. If I see what I like then I'll go ahead and make it but can't imagine it. Glad you're having fun!!

    If I were opening a quilt store, I'd sure want you on board! You could be the Civil War fabrics expert. I'm not surprised that customers like the fabrics you choose--you're awesome at putting together great fabrics. I don't see you you can be anything but a huge success!

    Hey Harmony!!!!!

    When they first opened up, they didnt even have a scrap of CW fabric, said they didnt really care for them :shock: ! So I took some of my quilts to show them. Guess what? The shop now carries CW fabric :lol: :lol: More CW converts :thumbup: :lol:

    Hey Melissa!
    so good to hear from you, and how exciting that you are working in a fabric shop!
    Is that a quilters dream if they have to work, or what?
    And you get to show off your talents.
    Them's some smart friends you have.
    Wow, I hope they are able to get a website. I guess you have told them they'd have plenty of customers right here on this board!
    We need to see more gb pics as hubby just called ours! Can you tell he has been reading the board lately?
    hugs, don't rub the prints off them bolts. :lol:
