List of Participating Shops
Here's the quilt from Fabric's Plus in Anacortes. Miss Carol went all out on this one. It was really fun to quilt! My first starfish. I'm always afraid to try something like this. What was I thinking? Cutest crab!Some of the background blocks. No quilt is complete without some swirly girly quilting! I found some pictures from the participating shops. You don't want to miss out on all of this creativity!
Fabric Etc made a round quilt. Absolutely fab! Go here to see what Keepsake Cottage has waiting for you. The Quilt Shop in Anacortes used blue half square triangles to highlight all of the blocks. Check out what Carrol over at Aunt Mary's Quilt Shop put together. Batiks, storm at sea, & a "to die for"(Kathy that's for you) border!
Go on a small road trip with a friend & checkout all of the shops. You can see all the beautiful daffodils & tulips in the Skagit Valley along the way.
I've been on the computer long enough this morning. Time to get quilting so I can Sail to a few shops this week & enjoy some of this terrific sunshine!

Today's quilts are from Lynn. The first is Nature Walk from Thimbleberries. They are not always the easiest quilt to do custom work on, but after some thinking this one finally came together. Tallest , straightest trees ever. Big blocks to play in. And another BIG block. This is a kit she bought from Aunt Mary's a long time ago & was happy to finally finish it. It's called Mandarin Rose & has origami flowers that will get a fun button in the center. I tried a ginkoesque(new word) fan around the flowers. I also picked up quilts from 6 customers while I was there, 5 quilts from one of them! 6 need to be done for the QA show on the 19th. The back seat of my car was piled high with quilts.
It looked like the Quiltmobile!
I'm glad I'm busy. Life is good! I better get off of the computer & get to work!

The picture was taken at Joanna's . I wish I had a bedroom with this much natural light at my house! Here's a closeup of the big tulip block. I love quilting leaves if you haven't noticed. A swirly curlyque holds this block just right. I finally have a voice, still a little 1-900 sounding. Just happy to be feeling better. I was looking at my lilac tree yesterday & saw hints of lavender buds! Please Mr Frost stay away!
Hope everyone is having a good week. I am on the countdown again. Heading back down for a nana-sitting visit the end of April. Woohoo!!!!!!! Nana Sharon
