Modern Quilt Relish Exhibit and the Arrival of Fresh Modern Fabrics for Spring

Marny here...our weather has been extraordinary!  Warm dry days filled with sunshine and bird songs and wild flowers and daffodils and crocus and tulips.  How are we supposed to get anything done?  Lucky for us Sheila Green ignored the call of Spring and hung our quilts at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska in time for International Quilt Day 3/17/12.  (Note the bit of St. Patrick's Day green in every photo:-)  Here is a link to our exhibit.    

They look awesome, Sheila.  Thank you for the photos and the hard work.  And yet another thank you to Ellen Rushman for recommending our quilts to the museum in the first place.  Visit her blog, Fabric Field, to see her take on the exhibit.

Jill and I will be seeing them all before they get taken down!  We will share more once we do that.  The show is March 16-31. 

But what else have we been up to?  New patterns for Spring Market in Kansas City is a partial answer.  Here are some pictures of yummy fabric piles that became/are becoming quilts for one of our new pattern covers.
What do you think?
Ever so helpful and always available if fabric is present!
From top to bottom.  Robert Kaufman Essex Linen, Kona Color, Valerie Wells for Free Spirit two pieces of Wrenly.

David Butler for Free Spirit Parson Gray.

Windham Fabrics Echo by Lotta Jansdotter.

Three pieces of Echo combined with Robert Kaufman Kona Snow.

What did you do on International Quilt Day?  What do you think of our fabric choices?
Till Tuesday...


  1. Love the fabric combinations! I can't wait to see your new patterns. I'm attending Quilt Market, so I hope I'll get to meet you two in person :)

  2. Congratulations on having your quilts hung in such a prestigious location! You can be very proud. Love your fabric combinations. Every one of them is very contemporary and will make perfectly modern quilts. Enjoy designing and sewing, as I know you do.

  3. Love, love, love your fabric choices. Nice pictures of your quilts at the exhibit. Congratulations!
