Another reason for going to The Festival Of Quilts is to meet up with my good friend Lynette Anderson, who designs wonderful patterns for quilts, wall hangings, bags, table runners and an assortment of wonderful goodies, as well as being a fabric designer for RJR fabrics. This year was even more exciting as she was accompanied by her husband Vince...
...this year two quilts that I had made that had been designed by Lynette and were made using fabrics from Lynette's collections were on display on her stand - Stitched by Me (made with fabrics from the My Hearts at Home collection) and Scandinavian Christmas (made with her newest fabric collection, Scandinavian Christmas). I was so excited when Lynette asked to have them on display. Did you meet Lynette at the show? And were you tempted to buy any goodies from her wonderful stand? As you might have guessed, I was very tempted, I'll share some pictures of my purchases later in the week! Oh and yes, as you might have spotted, I was wearing my Beehive Bag (designed by Lynette and available as a pattern and a kit from her online shop Little Quilt Store) which was really useful, as it was just the right size for my phone and my purse, and I received lots of lovely comments about it during my day at the show!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
