Here are a few links to things that I talk about in this podcast:
And then check out the blog for Althea Crome who made the tiny real-life sweaters for the movie. There is a YouTube video on the site of how she made them that will blow your mind.
Brightly Music Robin’s “Valentine” song for Alisha. Pay close attention to the song and you’ll hear these words… “I’ll bring the needle if you’ll bring the thread and we’ll stitch these hearts together” — pretty clever kid, eh?
A book recommendation: “A Single Thread” by Marie Bostwick .
We found it at Walmart. It is a REALLY good read! Marie writes about quilting in a way that makes you feel that you’re right there. Her characters feel like you are standing in the store, observing them — it is the most intimate story with a quilt theme I have read. And guess what? She’s writing a second novel!! I hope she writes about these characters for a LONG time. I wish Cobbled Court Quilt shop really existed.
Here are the pictures of the quilt that I saw at the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild. Pictures are never as good as the real thing, but I hope it inspires you as well.
Simple, but amazing, isn’t it? The black border really sets it off.
Little sparks of yellow fabric really shine.
The close-up shows the precision of the quilter. I think I would do this paper-pieced ; )
And some pictures from Asilomar:
Why is Freddy Moran wearing my Mom’s hat? (Stay tuned for the answer!)
My design wall and the new coat that I am doing for the Lecien fabrics Spring Market booth. More to come as the coat progresses.
The view just out the window…
The view out the other window — it rained the entire time we were there. But isn’t it beautiful?
Kathy’s red shoes — I want a pair!
Part of my quilt display was hung over the Cotton Patch store. I sat facing the store all day, looking at all of those bolts of fabric — talk about temptation staring you right in the face!!
The all-new “In Between Stitches” quilt shop in Livermore:
Shop owners Melissa and Leslie
Beautiful display cases. I love the lower cases with table tops.
Isn’t this a great display? The quilt on the wall is from this book:
by Tone Finnanger, aka Tilda
