Fast forward Review!

Hello Dear Friends!

What a BUSY time of year!!!
I'm going to "fast forward" a quick review of
what has been happening
"Inside the Studio" 
since I last blogged....

The beautiful International Quilt Market
was held in Portland, Oregon 
in May.  Moda had an incredible booth!
Congratulations to Holly from Moda
who designed it!
The Market was busy as usual, with
wonderful  new fabric being shown.
Moda had a new feature, the "Deisgners' Studio"
of which I was a part.  We presented our newest line
of fabric and patterns.  Mine is called
"Family Tree" and will be available 
in stores in October.
Jan Patek was my "booth buddy."
What a kind, generous woman!  
She gave me a mini-lesson
on applique which I hope to use soon.

Also in May....
My new Halloween fabric group arrived
at your favorite Quilt store!
It is filled with owls, spiders, candy corn, webs and
all things Halloween!

I love the panels...
definitedly a "Pumpkin Party" going on.
Also, love those pre-cuts!

Finally, once I returned from Portland,
saw my new Halloween line in stores, and
caught my breath....

I was able to watch my sweet little twin grandsons
at their pre-school program.
A busy, but wonderful month!

Can't wait to tell you about what is happening
in June!  I know we are half way through it and
what a month it is.
I'll give you a hint...
it involves travel in exotic places....
