A little Blossom and a little Jam. I guess I might have been
a little bit hungry when I originally named this pattern! But more likely I was
thinking of my last trip to London, or more precisely, the Cottswold villages
right outside of London. It seems that anytime we sat down for a snack there,
we were offered something “with jam”. Mostly “scones with jam” I think, but
also other things with jam.
Oh, I would really love to be back there now. Or at least
have some really good jam :-).
This little project is one of my current favorites. Its kind
of funny with the way things work around here, I don’t often get to enjoy the
projects during their actual season. We created this little table topper in
early Spring, just in time to debut for Quilt Market in May. We finished it and
photographed it for the cover and then sent it on its way to visit its share of
stores. Then the patterns were actually finished up and printed and they began
shipping to the quilt shops and the topper continued to travel.
The fabric that it was created with, TAPESTRY, however, did
not start to arrive in stores until the last couple of weeks [for all of those yummy precuts] and the
yardage is still to come [later in October]. And suddenly my little topper is back at home.
And so in a little twist of timing, I get to enjoy my little
Blossoms & Jam before she goes off on another adventure to another quilt
shop or perhaps to a show or two in the fall. Meanwhile, here she is and more
importantly…. She brings kits with her!!
