Minneapolis - En Avant!

Just flew in to Minneapolis from New York for the Quilt Show at the Convention Center. After I helped Joanna Figueroa in her booth for a bit, I walked around the Center...and what do my wondering eyes should appear - but a beautiful quilt made out of our Rural Jardin collection! The booth was half set up - so I don't know who designed or sewed the quilt - but I thought it was a beautiful piece, showing off all of our latest fabrics! I'll fill in the name after I meet her - or him - lots of boys are quilting these days! I'm here signing our new book, Treasured Notions, tomorrow in the Brewer booth at 11 and the Moda booth at 3:30 - stop by and say hello if you happen to be close by!

My gosh that is a beautiful quilt. I absolutely adore that color palette. I bought one of your fabrics and covered a foot stool with it. I think I need some more. I can't wait to hear more about it.

Have fun at Market and hope you see Keiko. And, if there are any quilts you can show us from your Maison line...don't be shy!

Kaari...I don't know if you have seen this quilt or not, but Kelly at Charming Chatter made a beautiful quilt from a woven bundle of Rural Jardin.

Here's a link to her quilt:
