Quilts, quilts and quilts.

I promised a blog post about the quilts on show at Houston Market 2012, but first a little update on the Charity Quilt.
This post is going up a little later than I hoped but life, as always, is chaotic. I made it back to Melbourne after Houston and it seems I was just in time to catch my flight to Abu Dhabi to visit my husband. I'll be spending the time there working on new patterns for Jen Kingwell Designs.

Sue and Wendy have been busy little bees creating a fabric range for Robert Kaufman called Fokeloric Blooms. The section presenting their new ra…
