The AQS show in Phoenix is now a memory but for those of us who didn't get there, here is an interview with the Best of Show winner, Kathi Carter. Her quilt is spectacular! If you want to know more about the rest of the contestants, here is a list of the winners.
Blend Fabrics has a great website. Their designs and colors are very uplifting and I enjoyed looking at all their projects here . This Harmony quilt pattern was simple but with a lot of movement in it. The Hello World Menagerie has terrific fabric in it, how cute for our little ones. I will put this Neopolitan quilt on my list of to-do's. There are so many here so take time to find a favorite.
Metropolitan Quilt.Com is a wonderful design company with many patterns. I love this little penguin in the snowglobe.
Embroidery has really caught my interest again this year. I love Charlotte Lyons designs. Here is a gallery of some of her designs and her blog is nice too. You can link to her Etsy site from her blog. Here is a sample of some of her embroidery! So sweet. Take care, get out your needles and embroidery thread and get stitchin. diana
