Houston Here We Come

I'm sitting at the airport right now waiting for a delayed flight to Houston. Quilt Market will be underway within days and then before you know it- all this waiting and working and sewing and tweeting and formatting and drawing and photoshopping and designing will all be over and we'll be home again.

I never feel quite ready when it all starts and I can never believe that its all over when it is. And this is easily the 14th or 15th time I am doing this. You'd think I would be "in the groove" of things more after all that practice. But… NO!

 

Anyway, in the coming days I will be showing you our newest goodies, one by one and also sharing a few extra special kits that we have available from our show last week at Pacific International Quilt Festival. We will only have a few of each and shipping will be free if ordered the first day, regular shipping any day after that [if there are any kits left on the second day]. So stayed tuned both for our fun sneak peeks as well as our limited kit offers..

Before I get on my flight, I thought I might share a few swatches of the new collection with you. It is called…. BUTTERCUP. It is our new Spring line that we will be showing in Houston and will be out in stores in February, 2011. 

More later…..

    I think I’ll have to hold my breath! Can’t wait for more wonderful Fig Tree kits. I think I may just have to have every piece of your new line. You just keep getting better and better. A true artist!

    Oh! I am already excited about Buttercup! I can see sliding it in with Fresh Cottons and Breakfast and making a really wonderful quilt!

    I’m happy to see it now, so I can save up my fabric budget for February!
    Looking forward to seeing all the wonderful photos of your pretty things at the quilt market!

    Do I really have to wait that long to get this pretty fabric? They look really lovely… I love it! I guess I have long enough time to think what I can make with these. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have fun in Houston Joanna! I met you there once when I accompanied my friend Jackie Clark to help with her booth and classes. I love your stuff! The only problem is that I love your fabrics so much, I can’t bring myself to cut into them, even though the patterns are so compelling! I guess it is not a terrible problem to have ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep up the good work!

    Love the Market Display.
    Buttercream is wonderful and I can’t wait to get the new fabric. And what a tease! I tried to purchase the cute little squares – only to learn they ar enot available for resale. Great tool!
