Great News & Design Wall Post

I’m so excited for my fellow quilt guild member, Jan of The Colorful Fabriholic, because her book proposal has been accepted by AQS!  Isn’t that wonderful? 

I managed to get completely caught up on the Saturday blocks from The Quilted Fox. There won’t be any Friday night rushing to complete my block for the first Sat in January like there was for December……..  I’m linking up with Judy’s Design Wall Monday post.   My design wall is getting full of the Fox Sails the Greek Isle blocks.

I haven’t posted a stash report in ages.  I have been keeping track but I misplaced the paper for quite a while.  Here are my purchases contributing to the stash in….

Purple Mourning BundlePurple mourning prints from Liberty Homestead

All of the following were acquired on a fun trip to Paducah in Oct with two friends from my quilt guild, Jan of the accepted book proposal above and Carolyn.  We had a wonderful time eating lunch at Flamingo Row, shopping at Honcock’s of Paducah and enjoying the quilts at the National Quilt Museum.
