except, of course, for this little pillow kit that I purchased from The Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw, SK - can't wait to find a little patch of time to get this one started. I already have the perfect spot all picked out where it will perch - that would make the spot a "posy pillow perch"!
and . . . no, I didn't pay three dollars for the kit - it was a bit more than that . . . not sure why there's a $3.00 taggy thingy.
Actually I visited Quilters' Haven before The Quilt Patch, but I didn't have all the photos together yesterday for that posting.
I'll apologize before I start this paragraph for the quality of the photo . . . my only excuse is that I was so surprised, shocked and extremely thrilled to see this little quilt.
IT'S ONE OF MINE!
How exciting to turn a corner and BOOM! there is one of my designs . . . all made up and looking fabulous. I had a wonderful visit with one of the owners . . . I know I have her name marked down somewhere! (. . . I'll keep looking for that - anyone who knows me, knows I'm terrible with names.)
They make this pattern up as a kit and have had a really good run with it . . . these old fashioned elevators are becoming more and more difficult to find. So if you're looking for a kit . . .
The "Haven" is a cozy quilt shop that, on an early Saturday morning, was very busy helping/teaching a couple of ladies the finer points of a technique. Everything from fabric selection to a guiding hand in the methodology. Wonderful gals to visit with and to ask help from.
Of course there were wonderful samples throughout the shop - (can you pick out mine in the background there!???)
This quilt was extra special and was brought out of hiding to show me . . . isn't it wonderful . . . all of those barns just seem to belong so nicely together and the details were superb. This is actually a block of the month and is available on their website at : http://www.quiltershaveninc.ca/ (Sorry I don't remember the designer's name).
Be sure to have a look at the rest of their site - and I know they are travelling to quite a few shows this Fall also, so everyone in Manitoba and Saskatchewan - keep your eyes open! Everyone else . . . . stop by their site and have a look around.
'til next time,
